    Since you can't exactly bto the ipod and you can get all accessories at the store. Should I get the ipod at the store or still order it online? Thanks

    Duff-Man says....the only difference may be that if you buy online from some mail-order places you may avoid some sales taxes, but you may pay shipping as well...so it is really your pick....if you have a local retailer, why not give them the business....oh yeah!

    Only buy online if you need the engraving

    I purchased my iPod at Best Buy and got the insurance on it. It's great! When my first pod gave out I just walked in and they handed me a whole new box as an exchange. No questions asked and it's a better deal at 4 years and 50 bucks than Apple's extended care plan.

    Thanks for all the advice. I will be buying it at the store. If one store is sold out I have 2 more to go to.
