Been using this for about two weeks now. Its my first iPod. A nice device mainly because the screen is so easy to read.
In termsof buying one, it is impossible to get much off the list price of $499 right now. Best you can do is to get free shipping and no sales tax as iPod Photo 40GB MP3 Player (Apple-M9585LLA) – PriceGrabber.com shows.
Today “Vanns”:http://www.vanns.com/shop/servlet/item/features/560499371?v_c=PriceGrabber seems to be the best buy. Is selling for $499 but a high quality merchant and no sales tax or shipping.
