    best to keep the minis looking the way they are and the full sized ipods looking the way they've always looked :bigthumb:

    they're supposed to be thinner and have a smaller footprint than the 3rd gen ipods

    link to newsweek article
    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/5457432/site/newsweek/

    just my guess but rumors have stated that the clickwheel will be in different colors...if that's so than maybe the clickwheel could be aluminum and have backlit letters like the powerbook keyboard

    steve looks pretty cool albeit a bit stiff...but hey, he's a genius, not a model.

    no way will you ever see bill gates looking even remotely as cool as steve :bigthumb: :bigthumb: :bigthumb: :wiggle: :wiggle: :wiggle:

    a lot of people said they hated the design of the 3rd gen ipod and the G5

    I already love the way the 4th gen looks

    Might have to sell one of my mini's and pick up a 20GB model.

    Wonder when these will be in the stores? (Hopefully soon after Monday).

    One-click shuffle toggling is my favorite new feature. Of course, it should have been that way from the start.
