Apple education promo: get a free iPod touch

Apple is once again offering an educational promotion where qualified collegiate buyers can get their hands on a new iPod touch for free:

Whether it's for a first year or a current university student, the faster, more powerful Mac is the ultimate computer for school. And now it includes something extra special. When university students buy a qualifying Mac, they'll get a free 8GB iPod touch. And they'll save even more with Apple education pricing. This offer is for a limited time and is available only at the Apple Online Store, Apple Retail Stores, and Apple Authorized Campus Stores.

Yeah, the 8GB which is basically a 2nd generation model. But hey, free is free. Anyone taking them up on it?
