    well I'm thinking about buying the new 30gb with the edu rebate deal making it cost only $90 to replace my zen micro 5gb. I'm wondering if its realy even worth it though. the only advantage I see is the fact that the ipod has a biger hd. I dont use software for transfering music to the mp3 player(just drag and drop folders onto the player with music in them like a drive) and dont realy intend on watching video on the ipod eather (thats what my macbook will be for). The max volume output provided on my micro is just about perfectly loud with my Sennheiser HD 212 PROs but not ear damaging loud. How is the volume on ipods?

    Well, first off, how many songs we talking? I have more than 8 GB, so the 5GB is kind of a joke to me, but what about you? And also, about the volume, iPod goes plenty loud. I keep my volume less than half most of the time.

    You also said it would cost 90$ to buy an iPod. Where do you get that kind of a deal? I checked edu discount and it is like $269, so where did you see 90? Because I would definately buy one for that low of a price.

    its $90 after rebate if u get it along with a mac like the macbook. Its part of one of apples current promos. The free ipod nano one. You can use the ipod rebate towards a regular ipod as well.

    ipods that apply are towards the bottom.

    Well, for starters you'll have to use iTunes to add/remove music from the iPod and to organise your music on it. The iPod is pretty loud at full tilt.

    There is no drag and drop feature for the iPod

    Not to sure but i think you need to put it on disk mode, which you need iTunes to do. Any way why wouldn't you wan't to use iTunes?

    Quite loud, I'd say. I actually use the volume limiter so I don't accidentally blast my ears out.
