My wife recently purchased an iPod and she is over the moon with it. I have transfered most of her CD collection to the iPod using my Dell laptop, but after seeing a very good deal on a new iBook at a mail order store we have now ordered her one and it should arrive sometime next week. My question is will the iBook recognise the PC-formatted iPod and all the songs, or will I have to transfer them again? I only ask because a friends iPod formatted using a Mac was not recognised by my Dell laptop. Also a second question if I may, any recommendations on a good Mac book for my wife who is a relative computer newbie?
