    I'm wondering if such a thing exists. Anyone have a Mac but no iPod?

    I have an iMac C2D. Over the course of the years, I've owned a few iPods, but I always traded them away for the latest and greatest. I realize now, that honestly, I don't need one. I don't own any more iPods, and have a bent, dented, yet working nano I got from a friend free. I use it in the bathroom with a (free) iHome nano for listening to music getting ready in the morning.

    And that is all the use I have for it. Sad, huh?

    I'm sure there will be quite a few replies to this thread that read something like this: I've been a Mac user muuuuuch longer than you. I thought it was ridiculous when Apple started to move to consumer electronics and ignore much of their computer user base. I'll never own an iPod as it is just a distraction from the work I do on computers. blah blah blah...

    Then the legendary Thread 500 can be brought up again. It's always good for a laugh.

    An iPod can't hold my music collection, so no, I don't want one.

    29,307 items, 73.5 days, 145.72 GB in my primary library. Doesn't include music videos or a 2nd library.
    I keep a copy on an external drive and mostly listen at home, using AirPort Express and my home entertainment speakers.

    So a 160GB Classic would hold your entire library.

    I did get my iPod before buying my Mac (about 7 months later) but must admit I wanted a Mac for much longer (after seeing one of the original iMac's on TV in the early 2000s).

    Me. I love music, but never saw the attraction of walking or riding around in a daze listening.

    No, most is 192kbps or higher. 192 is my default for ripping.

    I used mine a lot when I was in college. Now that I've graduated and have a real job I use it at work and to listen to podcasts, but my usage has dwindled greatly.

    No; in fact, especially with switchers - such as myself - the iPod, in general, predated ownership of Macs; it did so in my case, as my iPod predated my MBP by two years. This was a major reason why I contemplated the switch; - namely, both the excellence of the iPod as a piece of equipment and the package that came with it, iTunes, which destroyed competitively anything that MS had to offer, as well as the impressive nature of Apple's customer care service when the iPod battery died - twice, within warranty - and was replaced, twice, without a murmur.
    Cheers

    I bought an 30 GB iPod photo in 2005, and I listened to it over the Muzak system at the gas station I worked at when I was working 3rd shift. After I left that job, I quit listening to the iPod. I still have it, but never use it. I have no reason to.

    I have an iPod, but no Mac...

    Does that count?

    Should I get a Mac in the near future?
