    I have the money for the ipod 60gb on offer on dixons.co.uk for £270. I have wanted one for ages, and being a music uni student, music is my life so I want a big ipod. I will also be using my ipod as a portable Hard drive.

    Anyway what I don't know is should I hold off to get a new ipod if they are updating the range. I'm not fussed about the photo feature, although I like the colour screen and would value a good battery life.

    I'm off on holiday on August 1st and back to uni the end of september. I will obviously enjoy music while away on holiday as we are driving a long way, but I think I could manage with my minidisc for another 2 weeks!

    When are apple likely to release an update and will it be worth waiting for?

    I couldn't be sure of the date of the next update, but if you are getting the ipod from dixons, get coverplan on it. I know its a little more, but it really is worth it.

    I got a 3G ipod from dixons, and took out coverplan. This year it started doing an occasional 'weird' thing every now and again, it was changed on the spot for a 30 gig photo!

    Coverplan is really worth it.
