Apple has a new promotion through September that claims you’ll get a free iPod with any Mac purchase. To be more specific, it requires a ‘qualifying mac’ and you’ll receive a $199 rebate to use for purchase of an iPod. Most new MacBooks seem to apply and you can even use the rebate on a shuffle or other various ipod-related products.
Even though there products are typically escalated in price, they certainly prove to be quality. You can check out their store at http://store.apple.com/us/browse/campaigns/back_to_school?mco=MTc5NzIzMjU.
