I've used one and it's really sweet. Audio techs say that Nomads have better sound quality (I use a JB3), but it's minimal if anything, and worth sacrificing slightly for size and ease of use. If you've got the cash, go for it for sure.
yea i have one and they are pretty rad. Even though apparantly mac suck, since what that dude says applies to all mac products. But yea the ipod is worth the money. super reliable, tons of storage, and long ass battery
iPod's are sick as hell, I'd get the 15 or 30 GB models tho, a little bit more money, but the accessories you get with them are definitely worth it. The sound quality of any mp3 player depends on the bit rate of the songs, it really doesn't have anything to do with the physical player unless its a shitty flash-based mp3 player unlike the iPod.
If you can get a good deal on a bigger capacity version, then you should definately go for it. I got my 20Gb JB3 thinking I'd only use about 5Gb maximum. But now I've got over 9Gb of mp3s, plus I back up videos to it.
i just got one for $125 this weekend..
one of my friends' dad bought it off ebay..and thought it was this years..but it was last years..and it was the mac version..so he sold it to me for $125..rad shit eh?
iPod's are the best fucking MP3 players available. Period. I got one when they first came out (5 Gig), and then when I was in Whistler last year I found a 20 Gig in the Emerald Chair Lift line. Score one for the good guys.
No one on their death bed has ever said 'I wish I had played it safe'
i still like my MD, and i wont cry as much if i break it
And for America, there will be no going back to the era before September the 11th, 2001 — to false comfort in a dangerous world. We have learned that terrorist attacks are not caused by the use of strength; they are invited by the perception of weakness. And the surest way to avoid attacks on our own people is to engage the enemy where he lives and plans. We are fighting that enemy in Iraq and Afghanistan today so that we do not meet him again on our own streets, in our own cities. - George W. Bush
