Ordered 60 GB white iPod today... they say it's supposed to ship in 5-7 business days. I opted for overnight shipping.

I've ordered the white 60GB model too, I didn't seem to get a choice of overnight shipping though so who knows when it will turn up!

Ships on or before the 21st then it says to allow up to 7 further days for delivery.

Isn't it nice to have a revolving Apple home page..!

I ordered a 60GB black one today. I really liked the Nano in black and I hope that I will like the black full size one as well.

If the 30gb had the same battery life as the 60gb I might have bought one, but I just ordered myself a nano.

But I thought that the 30GB and the nano both have 14 hrs.

I think the new iPod is dope, I just hope they don't come out with a super awsome widescreen model in early 2006 like think secret says, all though they couldn't predict tomorow today.

Im not going to order one; I think ill go down to the states and avoid Apple's awful exchange rate (its should be $350cdn not $379 :mad: ) and hopfully Canada's sales tax its. :D

I can't decide if I wan't black or classic white.

I ordered the 30GB one today. I went with the white one. I had it engraved, so it may take a little longer than everyone else. What did I have engraved?

I'm going to pay rent & eat this month thank you :p, so no new iPods for me.

The 60 GB black is looking real good for a holiday item though :)

I like the new ipod i'm debating between the white or black... i like the black but i'm worried about the scratches and also black? White is the classic ipod color.... so i'm unsure on what color and about the size, i want to see/hold the to, to see how much in size they actually are... numbers don't mean jack to me

Same here. I'm thankful I resisted the sexiness that is the nano, and waited a bit. I'm definitely getting the video iPod. What color though, is the million-dollar question. I think the black one looks more sexy, but if it scratches as easily as the nano, then I might consider going white.

I'm bummed they went back to the same sharp corners like the old 1G and 2G iPods. The new 5G will feel like s*** in your hands.

The edges look sharper, but the actual metal looks like it has more of a curve to it. Does anyone have the dimensions of the 3rd Gen iPod - I want to see how this new one will compare with my old one :)

Yeah, yeah, yeah...I know it's not all that creative, especially with the recent avatar thing. I wanted something that would be generic enough and yet still have some kind of significance. :)

That was one of the first things I noticed about it. When I went from my 2nd gen to 3rd gen, that was a really nice subtle design improvement.

After thinking about it last night, I wonder if they had to do that becasue of the larger screen?
