We know that seemingly everyone wants an iPhone 3G--but the monthly service fees may be prohibitive for the college-bound. Get most of the iPhone's cool features without the wireless service by buying an Apple iPod Touch, starting at $299. Not only does it serve as an excellent music player with storage capacities of 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB, but the Touch can work as a great digital organizer as well. The iPod Touch comes equipped with Wi-Fi, the Safari Web browser, an e-mail client, calculator, notepad, and Google Maps; plus, the calendar and contacts applications will keep you organized. The best part about the iPod Touch? You get access to Apple's growing repository of iPhone and iPod Touch applications--which means that this is one digital music player that can grow with you.
Tip: If you buy a qualifying Mac (such as the MacBook), you can receive an 8GB iPod Touch for free after mail-in rebate. This offer is good through September 15, 2008.
