    I'm looking to buy my first iPod. I was looking at the 6GB mini, until I received a $30 coupon from Apple. Have to spend $300 or more. Mini is $249. 30GB Photo would be $319 after the $30 coupon. Now it's only a $70 difference, for the extra 24GB of storage plus photo capabilities. What do you think?

    I think it sounds good.

    How did you get the 30 dollar coupon though :p.

    No idea. I haven't downloaded much. Just purchased my first Mac and joined iTunes ~1 month ago.

    I love my photo so far. Can't say I use the photo features much, but it helps me sleep at night knowing I have a full backup of iTunes and iPhoto (not to mention all my work documents too).

    For those without a coupon, Buy.com has 30 GB iPods for $329 (free shipping).

    When Apple released the new 30/60 GB iPod Photos I did a quick search at my local resellers home page and they had the old 40/60 GBs in stock at a much discounted price - I picked up a 40 to replace my 20 GB 3G iPod I can't fault it at all, the hi res colour screen is much nicer than my old one - so yeah I'm happy. I don't know what I think about the new iPod Photos with all the stuff missing, any chance you can find an older model?

    What do you mean "missing stuff". Did the old 40GB come with more accessories?

    The "Old' 40 had a dock and a firewire cable as well as the USB cable. It might have even included a case (Not 100% sure n that one) The new photos just have the USB cable and power adaptor.

    I don't regret my 60GB photo one bit. I haven't really used the photo viewing except for album art yet. The extra storage will keep me going for some time.

    Yes, the "old" 60/40 models did include the case (and a drawstring bag). Mine's in there right now.

    I bought the 40GB iPod Photo when it was released and I have had ZERO problems. I love it! There have been plenty of times where I have busted it out just to show people pictures (more opportunities arise than one would think). The battery life is awesome too!

    I know what you mean about the opps for showing off photos. I was at work this morning and ran into a group that I had not seen in a while. They asked about my kids and out came the iPod. I flashed a mental picture of the guy pulling out his wallet with the accordian fold of pictures. I love it!!!!


    BTW I see you are a UK fan.. I am too but if they end up playing the Ville in the final game they are going down... (like that will really happen..) I think UK has the better shot, but you never know...
