Apple is offering a $200 mail-in-rebate for college students when they purchase an iPod together with a PowerBook or iBook. Since the price of iPods at the Apple Store for Education is $269 (20GB) and $369 (40GB), any college student buying a new laptop can pick up a 4G iPod for as little as $69. This rebate does not apply to the iPod mini, or the 12in CD-ROM version of the iBook, and is valid through September 25th.
I'm a passionate, long-time lover of Apple products, and was a civil draftsman and graphic designer before creating the iLounge web site. My prior projects include work for The Los Angeles Times' LATimes.com, and the company Creative Domain, where I developed websites for clients including Columbia Pictures, Disney, Fox Studios, Universal Pictures and Warner Brothers. As the Publisher of iLounge, I direct the site's community forums, photo galleries, iPod User Group, and general business affairs, which have grown under my watch to over sixteen million page views every month. I'm happily married with one daughter, one dog (Rocket the Wonderdog), one cat (Ferris), many iPods, iPhones, iPads, and two turntables.
