I went to my local Apple store to get some info on the 15GB iPod.  While there (the 15GB’s were not) I asked if they still had any 10GB’s left.  They did, and are clearing them out at $249.  I asked if they had a Educational Discount on top of the clearance and they did. I bought my 10GB iPod for $219 + tax out the door. I just wanted to pass this on.  Now that I have an iPod, I’ll be back to visit a lot more.

So buy your 10GB iPods for $219… or your 4GB iPods for $249.

Tough call.

Yeah, and buy your 15 gig iPods for $299….or a 30 gig Zen xtra for $260.

Or a Dell DJ for what $129? - after various inventory clearing discounts and stackable coupons.

Or you can probably find some generic 64MB flash mp3 player for about $20 somewhere.

So what.

what is meant by “educational discount?”

rob - Go to http://www.apple.com/education/ to learn more about Apple’s education discounts. If you are a teacher, student, or faculty member, you can purchase directly from Apple for a discount. For example, you can save at least $200 off any PowerBook. There are some great deals. And Apple trusts you. You don’t have to jump through a series of hoops to prove who you are.
