Hey everyone, It's my birthday this Friday and I'm going to have some extra money and I'd really like to buy an iPod, but I have some questions. I've heard that the iPod is easily scratched and shows every fingerprint. Is this true and is it very noticible? I've also heard that every year or so you need to send the iPod away to Apple to get the battery replaced. Is this true? Do you think it would be worth buying if you only had 160MB worth of music (currently, anyway) and don't listen to music ALL the time, i.e. someone who isn't a die hard music fan? It seems a lot of money which I could use to buy other things for my computer, such as more memory and the like. Ideally, I'd prefer an iPod mini, 4GB is ample enough for me but they will not be availible in the UK for a while yet and the price difference isn't that much, only about £50. What do you think I should do? Shaun.
