Similar to last year, Apple is giving away free iPods with Macs ordered through the education store. Last year you got the price of the basic touch discounted, but you could buy any you wanted. This year you get a free 8gb one. This doesn’t seem to available in the UK yet (where I am) so my girlfriend who just bought a whitebook might not be too angry.
Update: They are doing it in the UK now. You can get upto £130 rebate on an iPod. Full details of rebates here.
