Hey I just came from the Apple Store today; if someone you have read, my computer was warping and I got a replacement 2 days ago. Well any case I wanted to tell everyone that if you bought a computer before today with a student discount and you are still within your return/exchange period, you can go back to the store and buy an iPod nano/touch and still get the rebate on it! Just bring your receipt, show them that you bought the computer recently and it's still within the return/exchange period and they will allow you to buy an iPod nano/touch and you can apply for the rebate. This should answer your question on if you can get a free iPod if you bought/order a new computer recently! Cheers!
