Hello everyone. I used search, but I cannot seem to find a straight answer. I have a couple questions about the iPod. I have collected a good amount of money from people for Christmas. (Yes, I thanked them.) Now, I have enough to buy a refurbished iPod. I'm in a $150 - $200 US price range. I found this iPod on smalldog.com. http://www.smalldog.com/product/46398 My questions are: 1. Will this iPod play AACs at all? (Out of the box, or with firmware/software updates?) 2. What capabilities does this generation of iPod have? 3. Is this 10GB model a good buy? I want the iPod to play AACs, it's a necessity. I already know about its FireWire Disk mode. Will I need to find a 3g iPod for these capabilities? I don't have the patience to wait for the savings for a new one. How much are the 3g's running refurbed? Thanks for your help.
