    I haven't ordered yet, but I'll be at an Apple Store ready to buy tomorrow. Finally, now that the iPods have solitaire, an Apple product cheaper than a PC that can do everything the PC can do!

    17? 30 GB from Dell. Unfortunately, I didn't get as steep a discount as other people, but it was till pretty good and much better than the Apple price + tax and shipping.

    Why are all you people buying from Dell?



    Isn't that, like, disloyal or something? It'd have to be a pretty hefty discount to make me go near Dell. Even picking up a newspaper with their ugly ads in it gives me the creeps.

    No. You're buying an Apple product, and yeah the discounts are great.

    I care - they get less margin and therefore have less spare cash to spend on R&D for the 970 PowerMacs...!



    They've also been laying off a few employees of late, particularly on the QuickTime team. A cashed-up Apple might not necessarily have done that.



    Besides, isn't Dell fat and arrogant enough without being able to claim even Mac users prefer to shop there as well?

    Apple doesn't get the same amount of money as when they sell direct, but they still get the cut they expect when people buy from Dell. The reason why we're all buying from Dell is because they had the best price. $433 shipped to your door without haggling a Dell rep. $405 if you somehow got them to pricematch. $360 if you were able to use the coupon that expired on the 29th...If Nebrie really got it for $360, that's how he did it...

    As for myself, I'm going to wait a few weeks. For now, I have scrapped my MP3 library (it only contained a dozen CDs anyway) and started re-encoding in AAC. But I really need to get a larger HDD before going AAC crazy. My iBook's 10GB drive is 90 percent full without any music already. \




    Yes, "real life" is the tester... for me now too! I had been planning on holding off for a little while before picking up an iPod too although now that some crafty people at ipodding.com have found out that the new iPod can record I think I may end up holding off to see how that pans out. Recording is a feature I could definitely use and would finally tip the scales for me as a "must have" device. Let's hope Steve doesn't hold off on this too long as it looks like it may just be some adjustments to the software in addition to a microphone attachment incorporated via the new connector on the bottom. Here's to hoping!



    Ya'll have to wait a little while before I add my name to the list

    I got an iPod from Dell that I thought was not going to be delivered. The sales guy placed an order for the 20gb saying that they would ship the 30gb when they realized that Apple didn't have anymore. There was a 3+ weeks waiting list on the 20gb. Well yesterday at around 12am, my iPod which had showed delayed until June 21, shipped. I am thinking they replaced it with the 30gb since they are the same price. I hope at least.



    The best part of this deal, the total price shipped was $399.94!

    Did you get an email receipt?

    That would show you which iPod they shipped.

    I also think you can print a receipt from Dell's web site.

    The email I used for the order does not work anymore unfortunately. I updated it after the order but that didn't change this order. It is realistically the only thing that makes sense though.
