    That article was just posted. Seems pretty legit.

    I can't believe they are not going to drop the price on the bigger iPod. I think that $500 is pushing it.

    It also says that Apple is introducing the new faster Superdrives that Pioneer announced today.

    That IS the most reasonable assumption.

    Of course, it's all MBE untill Steve-o is off the stage.

    a one-inch increase for an already large monitor produces a pretty good deal of extra surface area...:)

    are they gonna put the price for the 22 inch at 2000 then since it's like that with the rebate anyway?

    That seems reasonable - but what about discontinuing the 22 in. altogether. Seems unlikely that they will have a 22 and 23 in simultaneously...

    I would be more inclined to believe that Apple would release a 18.1-19" LCD screen, not a 23". They could price it out at about $1300-$1500 and sell lots of them.

    I would love to have the equalizer feature added to my iPod, and I heard things about that before.

    As for the new price for the iPod, I certainly hope that they keep making the 5GB model. Maybe even drop it by $50-$100? That way people who don't have as much money can still get the iPod. I love mine and use it every day.


    Opps, my bad.. they posted the 23" LCD, and the prices for the new iPod.. old one stays at $399, new one is $499.

    The iTunes and iPod updates are SWEEEEEEEEEEEET!!! :D

    the iPod was almost a given...with the announcement of 1.8" 10 gig hds anyway...

    the 22" Cinema Display is already a monster...and yes 23" is bigger....but I can't imagine them having both....it wouldn't make much sense....especially if they are priced comparitively...

    What the hell $500 for the 10gig iPOD whatever how much does the HD cost I'm sure we can hack it into the 5gig version

    Unless they price the larger one more.. by oh, say, $1,000... oh, look.. they did. That's an expensive inch... but the 24" Samsung is $1,000 more than the 23" Apple.. so I guess a grand an inch is standard at that size.

    Oh THANK GOD!!

    I was SO afraid they'd price the 10 gig at $399 and drop the price of the 5 gig to $299 or something... I would have been SO PISSED especially since I just bought mine less than a month ago... thank God. :D

    (And tough luck for you guys who were hoping for an iPod price drop! Maybe next year! :rolleyes: )

    Sure, if you feel like voiding the warranty (go for it after it expires though). What would you do with the 5GB that you pulled out of it?????
