Hi, i'm thinking of getting a macbook pro for my architecture course in september but i'm not sure whether to buy now or wait till i arrive at uni.

I was just wondering if last year apple had a similar deal for uk students as it does in the U.S. with the ipod rebates and cheap printers etc as i don't want to buy now to adjust over the next month only to find i could have saved money or got something free

Also when i was looking round unis last year manchester had an advert on the wall of the i.t. dept. advertising a macbook deal, can't remember the details but are these sort of deals commonplace in unis?

thanks for any help
