    Im assuming it will, as there is nothing to stop it. But what about if i download stuff from itunes on to it, will the DRM prevent it from being transferred on or anything?

    ...and on that note. Could someone tell me the best place to get one of the new nanos in the San Fransisco area. Im assuming the price is the same everywhere. So what places (except the Apple store) have them in stock, or will do by the end of next week.

    (8gb nanos - or maybe even the 16gb)

    I would strongly suggest going to an Apple Store, some small shops sell iPods at greatly inflated prices, as they hope tourists think they're getting a good deal (conversion rate savings etc).

    The link below contains details on the 3 stores that are situated in SF.

    I wouldn't suggest getting something like a MB from the US as the warranty is not international, as soon as you brought it back, if you ran into any problems, you would have to fork out of your own pocket to fix them.

    Also you'd need to buy a UK to US plug adapter for the power supply, which could be prone to failure (Power supply costs £60 to replace...)

    I contemplated doing the same thing when buying my first mac, and I was quickly talked out of it, you get savings, but it's not worth it in the grand scheme of things.
