Angry Rant: And I was looking forward to getting an iPod

I've been holding off getting an iPod because the new ones have been just around the corner. But now that they're here, what does Apple do? Puts the price up! Like they weren't expensive enough anyway! At $612 for the 20 GB, I don't see how anyone could justify buying one. Grrr!

Why not just ask someone to get it in the states and ship it to you?

That's even worse

The 4G 20 GB is supposed to be the same price as the 3G 15 GB.

That is just ridiculous, I certainly feel for you some of the pricing here in Europe has been terrible in the past too. Is there anywhere else you can get one from, Hong-Kong tends to be pretty damn cheap if you can get anywhere to ship at a reasonable price.

Hmm, despite having gone up in price, it's actually slightly cheaper than the UK price. NZ$612 is about 215/US$400.
