iPod TouchThere is no doubt that Apple makes ridiculously cool products, but there is a definite art to knowing when to purchase them.

Almost as soon as any new Apple product is released, Apple fans begin the countdown to the next iteration of the product.  In the case of the iPod Touch, which was first released in September of 2007, it was almost a certainty we would see an updated version around the same time the following year.  The reason for this is that Steve Jobs, the CEO of Apple, loves to launch new versions of the iPods just before the holiday shopping season,

The mild surprise this year seems to be that it looks like that not only the iPods will get updated, but from a letter leaked to AppleInsider, it looks like the Mac Books and Mac Book Pros will also be getting an update at the same time.  The letter informs resellers to expect inventory problems within the next week, which means Apple is clearing the decks for new models, and they should stock up with at least 4 weeks worth of inventory.  This puts us at early September… which for the past two years has been when Mr. Jobs has introduced new iPods.

If this sounds like a headache to play a guessing game, it can be, but it is also soemwhat predictable.  If you’re uncertain when a product came out, there is a very handy guide at buyersguide.macrumors.com that tells you the last time an Apple product was updated, and how imminent they think the next update is.  In short, I wouldn’t recommend buying any iPods or Mac Books right now.  September is the magic month for the new products in these lines.
