Apple has made it official. Now, anyone who buys a Mac for college can get a free iPod touch (or iPod nano, your choice).
If you’re a student, faculty, or staff member and you buy a Mac before September 15, you can get a free iPod touch or iPod nano. All new Macintosh computers and the Configure-to-order versions of these products are eligible, except for Mac mini and 17” iMac.
When you buy your Mac, simply purchase an 8GB, 16GB, or 32GB iPod touch and qualify for a rebate of US$299 or an 8GB iPod nano (silver, pink, blue, green, black, or red) and qualify for a rebate of $199. After you receive your Mac and iPod, just submit your claim online by October 15.
