    i just moved to nyc and can't stand being without an ipod any longer! i am sick of being the only one on the train without white ear plugs!! i was wondering though - with the new photo ipods just being released should i wait a bit and see if the current 20/40 ipods drop in price? or do ipodders think they'll stay about the in the 300ish/400ish range respectively?

    They will stay at exactly those prices until the 5Gs come out - or the 6Gs if we count the iPorns as 5Gs.

    Just FYI, the 3rd gen is the older one (with 4 buttons above the wheel), 4th gen is the newest (non photo) one, with the grey click wheel.
