    Was at costco yesterday and saw the 20gb ipods are only 230 now.

    There was someone selling one in the FS thread for 185 also, but I figure the extra 50 bucks is worth costco's lifetime "warranty" and piece of mind I wont get screwed over. Plus I'd be able to get it instantly.

    The nanos are pretty slick, but 4gb isnt enough for me to hold my music... I want the majority of my songs to be there when I want (currently at 33.3gb)

    There isnt going to be a 5th gen ipod coming out soon is there?

    i believe there will be. and it will be smaller then the current 20 and 40 gb ones. there is a company that has developed very small 40 and 80 gb drives that are supposedly going to be used. there is some more info about them in the mac shack forum.

    ya know... i avoided buying an iPod for a long time... I kept saying "no big deal"... I bought the wife a 60gb Zen Xtra... What a PIECE OF SHIT... Broke 3 times in the 90 day warranty, then a 4th 2 weeks out of warranty. Its now sitting in my desk drawer...

    I got a 20gb iPod for my birthday, and i LOVE this sucker. Like I didn't think i'd like it this much, but its just GREAT.

    Get a case for it before you take it out of the box. Mine got scratched to hell in 20 minutes.

    supposably on the 12th they're announcing the 5th gen ones. 80gb, thinner, lighter. video playback is still up in the air.
