It was a tough choice between the 20gb and the 30gb iPhoto. But I just didn't really feel i'd use the photo part of it at all. Also i like that the 20gb still comes with the firewire cable, its a bit thinner, and lighter too. I got it engraved so its 1-3 weeks for it to ship, so i'll be waiting a while for it. I'm just so happy i'm getting it to go along with my iBook. what ipod do you have? and why did you pick it?
