    My ipod stopped working, and I'm looking for a new one.

    I had an 30GB video (5.0G), and I'm planning to buy an iPod 80GB

    But I'm wondering:
    what's the actual storage space you get?

    Cause my 30Gb was 28,7Gb or something like that..

    It'll follow the same ratio as the 30GB, giving you about 76.5GB... (EDIT I think you're overestimating, by Macbooks 60GB HD is actually 55.5GB, so you should get about 74GB...

    80 000 000 000 (bytes) / 2^30 (bytes/GB) = 74.51 GB (rounded to the second decimal)
