I need help - can't decide. I have OSX 10.3 I am an audio engineer I will use the recording feature NetMD: +Stereo Record* +Record battery life is greater than iPod playback* +Playback time is almost 24hrs on internal battery* +Smaller +Does not skip during tasks that casue the iPod to skip +Already have five 74min MDs +"Unlimited" capacity by swaping disks +Removable NiMH battery +Comes with AA adapter add-on +LCD remote (N910 is backlit) -Realtime song transfer -NetMD features not easily available -Not as cool as an iPod iPod: +Capacity* +Integration with Mac* +AAC compatabilty* +Faster transfers (firewire vs real-time)* +No need to title tracks +Easier to use on the road +No copy protection on files (can send to the iPod in native format as many times as I want (I can't use the iTMS (re: location))) -Battery life (and no, I will not purchase a Belkin battery thing so that my iPod can be bulky and still have a shorter life) The points that have the '*' next to them are important issues to me. I can not honestly decide. The MD solution is cheaper by about AU$100 but the stikler is realtime transfer. Thanks in advance and could any "iPod cause Apple makes it" people not post. Thanks again.
