The Apple 4G iPod and the HP 4G iPod are the same as far as function and appearance. The only differences are that the HP iPod comes pre-formatted to work on Windows and includes a Windows installation CD, the HP logo appears on the back of the HP iPod, and the box is blue and white with “iPod+hp” and a “people photo” on it.

In addition, AppleCare cannot be purchased for HP’s version of the iPod.  If you desire the 2-year coverage provided by AppleCare, you’ll need to purchase an Apple-branded iPod.

Next: How do I stop the iPod from auto sync’ing when connected to iTunes?  If I auto-sync, I’ll lose some of the music that’s only on my iPod!

Previous: I want to buy an iPod, but all of my music is in Windows Media Player format (.wma). What should I do??
