Hey guys, So I've decided that I'm probably going to get an iPod. I'm not sure which model to get. I've got a few questions. Can the iPod act as a music harddrive? Here is what I mean.... I know the iPod can be an external harddrive, but what I want to do is load all of iTunes on it. I know I'm not being very clear, but my Powerbook has a 60gb harddrive. After OSX, it really only has about 48 gb of usable space. If I have a 40gb iPod, I know I wont want 40gb of music on my computer, simply because my harddrive would be completely full, and I wont have any space for video editing, dvd burning, games, MS Office, etc. So what I ultimatly want to do is make it so my complete iTunes file is on the iPod, and when I want to play music through my computer speakers and/or do something with the file, I can just plug in the iPod and use the songs. I realise I won't have any songs when the iPod isn't plugged in, but I'll just leave a few (hundred ) of my favorite songs on the computer harddrive. Would this work? Also, how much bigger/heavier physically is the 40gb over the 20gb? It must be a pretty big amount if they have different cases and everything. Does it act as a good external harddrive? Would it be the same as buying a LaCie (sp?) 40gb drive, or is it just kind of quirky and useless? Do you think the dock and remote are worthy and useful accessories? I guess I don't really don't need either, but at the same time both would be nice. I can't decide if I want the 20gb or the 40gb. I pretty much KNOW that I won't ever have or need 10,000 songs in my pocket, but it seems like the added accessories make the extra $100 worthwile, plus if it acts as an external harddrive it might be the best choice. Sorry for the super long post, Thanks alot!
