Compared to the free 8GB iPod touch students got in the past years this deal is a step down. The Microsoft Back To School 2011 deal is no looking even more attractive. Students get a free Xbox 360 ($199.99 value) with the purchase of a Windows 7 computer priced $699 and above.
The rumors of the iPad being part of the 2011 Back To School promotion also turned out to be false. In the end this year's Apple Back To School promotion was not really worth waiting for. On the other hand if you have been holding off your Mac purchase until now wait a bit longer for the release of the new 2011 MacBook Air end of the month.
