College students who buy a Mac their school or direct from Apple can score a free 8GB iPod Touch after a $229 rebate. Apple offers students between $50 and $200 off MacBooks, making this a pretty sweet deal for those that who are set on getting a Mac and were already eying an iPod Touch. Apple’s run similar promotions over the past couple of years and drummed up a lot of enthusiasm. I wouldn’t recommend letting this deal sway your Mac vs. PC buying decision too much, but if you end up on the Mac side of the fence this is indeed a nice bonus.
Apple’s most affordable MacBook is priced at $999. Qualifying students can buy it for $949.
