well no one here has ever been able to help when i have a mac question but this should be an easy one (btw that g3powermac STILL isnt working but i found another with the same problems) ive been wanting to buy an iPod for awhile, and i think the 10gig would be great because it would have room for my music and for data transfers. i have one concern... humidity. i asked this on another thread without much response, but im hoping someone can help. the humidity in the tropics seems to fry cheap electronics rather quickly. some walkmen work great while others die after a few days of use. we typically keep all sensitive electronics in the air conditioned (and thus arid) room, but i would like to carry music with me around the island/s. seems like with the international atmosphere here at macrumors we would have someone who lives in the tropics somewhere who could help. id hate to pay $500 for something that would break after a day or two of use.
