Hi, I'm new here at MacRumors... I had previously been frequenting the site in the hopes of hearing about PB updates which, unfortunately, came too late. So, here I am on a Windows laptop. Anyhoo, to the topic at hand... I'm strongly interested in purchasing an iPod... but they are rather pricey. But, I see from the site that the 20GB Refurbished is the same price as the 10GB Brand New (w/ student discount). A few questions: -Can one have a refurbished iPod engraved? -Why do they distinguish btwn. a MAC iPod and a Windows iPod? I was under the impression that all iPods are cross-platform. -Why does the Refurbished item state "prior version w/touch pad, remote & carrying case"? I thought the 20GB model was a recent release. What does it mean by "prior version"? -This sounds completely foolsih, but... what makes the Dock so special? And should I be concerned that the Refurbished iPod doesn't come with one? Is this the only difference btwn. a Brand New and Refurbished iPod? -Has anyone had any experiences with Refurbished iPods that they would like to share? I would appreciate all the help I can get. Thanks. EDIT: Also, is there any difference between the 20GB and 30GB iPods? They are both considered 3G, and yet the 20GB version is newer. Would I be missing out on anything if I went w/ the 30GB iPod? EDIT 2: I just realized that the Refurbished 20GB has no Dock Connector... not merely lacking a Dock. Does this mean I can't use the remote? What other issues might arise from this... deficiency?
