30GB Ipod Music Photo & Video PC MAC

Today I purchased a new 30GB Black Ipod with Music Photo & Video.
The new iPod boasts up to 20 hours of battery life(5), five hours more than before. Plus, you get a bigger display and one more iPod color — sleek black. But here’s the kicker: At under half an inch thin, the new 30GB iPod takes up about 45 percent less room than the original iPod. Even the new 60GB model is over 10 percent thinner than the fourth-generation 30GB iPod. More features in less space? Sounds like iPod.

    cool, i like the black ones in the video and nano. I had been thinking of getting the same one you have, but I'm also looking at the archos gmini, creative zen vision, psp and im thinking apple may release a iPod with video with a bigger screen size. Not sure yet, but i'll wait a while. Also, once we start doing the Spurscast in video, i'll have to give you the link for the ipod for video download.
