I gotta a ton of music and will only buy more and more every year. My collection will rip to over 40GB in 128 AAC, BUT I don't want to pay and extra $200 for the 60GB iPod Photo... So, does anyone think (or "know," wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more) that there will be a straight 60GB iPod available after MWSF? Either way, I'm waiting to find out before I buy an iPod, but I was wondering what all y'all thought. Also, have any Mac experts/addicts objectively assessed the non-iPod hard drive based players? I know some are good machines and have some features that many want to see in the iPod (real recording capabilities being one of them), but I also know a lot of them aren't really Mac compatible. AND none of them are iTunes compatible (but I could deal with that if the product was good enough). By the way, I'm not going to endlessly wait to buy an 80GB next year (although I'd buy one now if they were available). Thanks and Peace.
