Umm, my Best Buy has a ****load of new iPod 5Gs. Seriously, we keep em all in the back room where meetings take place.

Just piled on the floor, boxes and boxes full of iPods.

I would never buy an iPod or anything related to Apple from anybody but Apple. Especially not Best Buy. My manager used to work at Best Buy and got transferred around a lot and said every single Best Buy he managed had the same incompetent, lazy, misinformed, and ignorant staff.

But why would that affect the iPod?? I could understand not buying from some place if they do something to the iPod, but not buying because they are misinformed doesn't really make sense to me. I am still getting an iPod, I'm not paying any different.

iPods, newer is better
Not sure what you mean, but newer isn't always better for everyone. For example, some people prefer the aluminum mini enclosure to the plastic nano enclosure. Although, if an alu nano comes out, that'll overall be a step forwards from the mini.

Yeah, there's probably nothing wrong with it, but I just feel so much more comfortable talking to someone and buying from someone who knows the product inside-out. Also, this is just speculation, but I would imagine an Apple employee would be much more careful not to drop a box of iPods than a Best Buy employee. Am I crazy to think that way?

I've had three iPods before I finally found the one that's suiting my life best. And I'm sure you'll smile at this, 'cause there's definitely a large downgrade in this iPod-related tale. :)

3G 40GB iPod
4G 2GB iPod
5G 60GB iPod :D
512MB iPod Shuffle :eek:

Basically, I found I wasn't using my 5G iPod to watch any of my plethora of iPod videos and I hated how I had all of my 32GB+ library on it and couldn't shuffle the songs without hearing songs I've never heard in my life. All I really need my iPod for at this time in my life is for when I'm riding my bike. If I'm on a long road trip where I'd want to listen to a large variety of music, I'd have my laptop with me anyway.

Daniel.

P.S If you would have told me a year ago that I would ever even consider buying a Shuffle, I would've punched you in the face because in my eyes, Shuffles "weren't real iPods." I still really don't think they're technically real iPods, but for $49 I get everything I need and the Apple Battery Pack for free.

I liked the feel of the metal mini, but the nano size and speed wins hands down. The mini is a dinosaur with retro appeal only.

If a metal nano comes out, I'll get it.
