    I'd recommend not getting it engraved if you really don't have a reason to.

    It reduces the resale value and if you ever need to get it serviced it'll take several week for Apple to return it. They don't repair the iPod but send a refurb off to be engraved with the old message.

    lol i'm not sure about the first one, but i like the idea of putting a reminder on there. or i just thought what if i put "1984" it's both the year of my birth so it has personal significance, and it has broad appeal as a part of apple history, and maybe wouldn't reduce retainl value. hell i could claim it's a special anniversary editon of the ipod and charge more down the road :p

    welcome to ipod nation!

    I have two ipods which are mini, 4G ipod. but mini doesn't have engraving. new 4G has great engraving. I was thinking about what kind of that could be cool. but in just few seconds, I went with 'new ipod, new job, new life it's my precious!'

    well, actually, expression to add 'new' because I got new ipod so that it could change my job ability, and be forward to new digital life. therefore, ipod is my precious to challenge for. :)

    You're going to have to wait a long time before you can pull that one off.

    What is pretty weak is that I ordered mine with a special engraving but I did not receieve it the way I wanted; they never engraved it! I know I went thru the whole process but they (Apple peeps) say otherwise...Booooo...Oh, well, anyone know if you can get an engraving from 3 party vendors??? There are stores like Things Remembered that might do it, although I'm kind of scared even if they did, know what I mean?

    i dont think i can post this or i might get in trouble. . . so i will hint at it.

    seen pulp fiction? know what is written on the wallet?

    (this is as accuratly as i remeber from the movie)
    "just give me my wallet back"
    "which one is it?"
    "the one that says 'bad <stuff i cant post>' "

    though maybe you should save that to be put on your wallet not your iPod. . .

    thats what i want on my wallet. hmmm . . . where could i get that done?
