    I know it hasnt started yet, but in the years of the past does the mac mini count as part of the back to school program to get a free ipod touch or is it only the imacs and macbook pros?

    In the past, it has not included the mini.

    mac mini: $649
    imac: $1049

    i mine as well just add $400 to get a imac and then sell the ipod for $200. pay $200 more than the mac mini for a lot more power, and a screen, and a mouse, and a keyboard, and probably a better resale value/chance

    I think it's odd that poor students aren't offered Apple's least expensive computer at a discount for back to school. But I guess most kids want/need a laptop anyway.

    They can get a student discount on the Mini, they just can't get the free iPod.

    Also, in truth, a Mini + keyboard + mouse + screen... well you may as well buy a MacBook or iMac.

    I was thinking the same thing, more or less. The rumored iTunes gift card, though, would be $100 less. This way, btw, it's easier for Apple to offer scaled down BTS gifts for Mini's as I think they should be doing.
