New iPod? New Mac?

I'm thinking iPod, but 30 or 60?

tough question..... only $100 more, 33% for Twice the Storage... but... if 30GBs is enough to cover what you want to have on the go, why not save that $100?

On one hand - could be kicking yourself for not going 60GB...

On the other - that $100 could go to some other gift(s) or with interest towards whatever Apple's latest is a year from now. smiling smiley

I am a very impatient willy. I couldn't wait for Christmas. It happened in June for me.

Depends on the recipient, I guess. If you're buying me an iPod, it'd better be the 60GB as my 3G 30GB is chronically full.

I've already done most of my shopping, read that "spent most of my money", so I doubt there will be any big Apple products under my tree, unfortunately.

iPod Nano under the tree for my wife, complete with armband so she can use it at the club.
Then I snagged a .mac account for my mom. Was tempted by the apple socks I saw at their store but passed.

I am thinking about buying my 9 year old an iPod Shuffle for Christmas. Should be a good introductory model for her. I am worried about her taking it to school to show off then losing it though.

I am going to wait until after Christmas and buy myself a 30 gig video iPod.

I am buying my wife a new puppy for Christmas.

I am still trying to figure that out. All the hobbies I have require very little upkeep. Really clean for the most part and don't leave any "surprises" for one to step in.

My wife on the other hand is quite the opposite.

I went for the 30gb in white. I also ordered the power adapter. I don't know what I'll do with my 1st gen ipod that is still working perfectly. Possibly keep it hooked up to a stero somewhere in the house. That might be nice.

If Apple would stock some more refurb iPod Minis, I'd probably get a couple for the kids. Nanos are OK but they're first generation and the Minis are still more bang for the buck.

I just found a great deal and bought myself a lovely 60 gig iPod Photo for Christmas. Very nice!

I will still use the Shuffle for short shopping trips and the third generation 30 gig iPod will stay home hooked up to speakers.

It's very good ettiquette to test posting notions in an old thread, rather than mucking up the front page... perhaps not such great ettiquette to test using the oldest thread on our venerable board. My 2 sense.

Sounds like we all should have listened to rgrF.

I can't for the life of me find an excuse to buy a new laptop. I want one, but I just can't find the reason to jump in yet.

Oh, and happy anniversary a few hours in advance.

Well, just celebrate in some way... you're a folk hero, iaJim (or at least an important personage). Happy indy day 23 minutes (or 1hr 23min) in advance.

Happy Anniversary MRF. The first post really should have been MacArtist's. He's the one who gave me the heads up on the place. Funny how little I think about the other place. Glad that there is an online time wasting place here.

Isn't it about time for some sort of server crash that makes the obscure early days unaccesable, leaving the old timers to rant to anyone who will listen about how they were the first ones there?
