    I'm almos convinced about buying the iPod Video (30G),
    but after some research (Im not gonna give up 300 just like that, right),
    thereis something that worries me,
    I read at Wiki, that the battery on this iPod is not replaceable,
    is that entirelly true?, if it is, is there a work around?, damn, cus I mean,
    I don't wanna trow all that money just for a few weeks of use.

    AFAIK the only one that is replacable (unofficially i may add, i think it voids the warranty) is the iPod mini. Considering the Video is made of metal or whatever, i highly doubt you can replace the battery yourself.

    That's my main gripe with the iPods. If they had a replacable battery, i might've considered getting one.

    You can buy new batteries on some websites...it's hard to replace it though, especially if you want to without scratching it.

    you have to get the AppleCare Protection Plan (i think its about $60) for iPod and they'll change it for you. i think the protection plan runs for 2 years and they'll change when the battery for you within the 2 year period, as long as the battery's permanent life is at 50%.

    imo, ipods = overrated

    And as for monkeee's post, not 100% sure but average ipod usage usually puts it at more than 50% at the end of 2 years, or am I way off?

    Ipods are gay.
    Apple = cash mongering whores.
    Both facts.

    Why else would they sell an mp3 w/o a replacable battery?
    Why does the Mac cost so damned much?

    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.
