The warranty on my 5G iPod runs out in 5 days and im considering getting AppleCare for it since its only 30 quid but friends are saying its a poor investment and that iPods are meant to be replaced not repaired.lol Anyhue i actually love this iPod, its been rock solid, i dont use a case with it (just martin shields overlay) and have dropped it several times but its still works like the day it was taken of its box. Also i've only had to reset it...maybe thrice since the past year. It also serves as a backup drive for me and battery life still commands 11+ hrs All in all very very impressive. Part of me thinks of forgoing AppleCare and just having faith that it'll continue to work for at least another year But these products have a way of failing as soon as their warranty runs out. I would also prefer to skip the first revision of the true video iPods when they ship as i'd rather not be a beta tester, given Apples recent quality control. Anyway, what do you guys think?
