Should I buy an I-Pod?

Postby jzfran » Sun Jul 31, 2005 7:47 pm

I am in high school and have been working about 40 hrs/week between 2 different jobs. I want to save most, if not all of the money I make. However, i listen to a lot of music. I was thinking that of the $1500-2000 I will make this year, I would buy the IPod and then bank the rest. Does anyone have any suggestions about what type to buy? Also, how cheap could I find a new one for and where could I find them cheap? Thanks a lot!

hmm..... They don't really sell below price that often.....I just bought my Dad a 20 gb Color.....I have 20gb not color (ahh who cares, but I'm jealus of the pics you can put on) I say that getting a 20 gb is the way to go.....not too much space and not too little. I hover around 200 songs so it depends how many you have..The Color 20 GB is $ 300.. My neighbor told me how he got his $30 cheap because he got an iPod at Best Buy when they had a big sale....I don't know if this helps, but good luck.

Just buy one from NewEgg. ;-D I've always thought I-Pods were overrated. There are much better deals on other name brand players if you ask me. I don't have the most extensive music library, but I don't think I could fill a 20GB player. I suppose it's nice to have, but I can fit 6+hours of music at 192kbps (which is roughly CD quality) on my cheap ($89) little 512MB player, which is good enough for me. I just listen to the stuff I loaded on there until I'm bored with it then just replace that with different playlists, but then again, I don't have to have my entire collection at my fingertips at any given moment either. :-b

You could always do it my way and get it for free but that's another story. If you're a student, you can get a discount from the Apple store or apple.com

Wait for the 5G to drop most likely later this year.

I dont like the minis that much. I think they're ugly and not much of a better deal....at 5 GB mini is what $200? While a 20 GB regular ipod is $300...

Im really thinking of buying one too, but no way i'd get a mini...or a shuffle...

don't buy an Ipod, other brand are just as good and a lot cheaper.


This from an ipod owner.
