My friend who works the apple store at Cal state Long Beach just sent me a text message saying: "New back to school promo: free ipod mini when you buy an apple computer. You just missed it." Not sure if this was announced yet, but just thought I'd share. I checked the apple site and didn't see anything but who knows. Unfortunately I just ordered my powerbook last week . Oh well, I got the $100 rebate, and I have an ipod photo anyways!
