I thought there was no difference in the PC and Mac versions of the new Ipods. Is there any difference? Can I take a 2nd-gen “PC” Ipod and use it with my iBook? What about a 2nd-gen “Mac” and use it with my Windows box?

I purchased a 15gb as a gift for someone today from Dell. The discount was $86.03 after I added a $11.29 pack of 10 80 min CDRs. WIth an additional $8 off shipping. This is absolutely the best deal I’ve seen for a new iPod.

Yes, there is no difference, all new iPod models ship with Mac and PC software included. I have corrected the Dealmac news item.

I just tried and the 15 gb came to $359. The 30 gb was something like $454.

How’d you get it so cheap?

Well, the price is great, but as an owner of an out of warranty, dead 5 GB iPod, I really want an extended warranty.  I just bought a 15 GB 3G iPod from BestBuy with a 4 year warranty (+$40).  I hate paying full retail and I hate BestBuy, but I don’t think I can buy an iPod without the extended warranty.

Last I knew, you could buy an 4 yr warranty at BBuy even if you didn’t but the iPod there.  I know I did with my iPod last Fall.

I picked up a 30GB iPod from Best Buy this past weekend (I wasn’t expecting Dell to get them for a while..) Anyways - when I purchased mine, a friend bought a Creative Zen and used a pricematch from Dell for 10% off.. (Best Buy doesn’t normally do internet price matches). Well, when I saw the Dell discounts today - I printed out the shopping cart with the discounts and free shipping and brought it in to the same sales guy.. He remembered me, and did the pricematch PLUS 10%.. I ended up paying $394 for my 30GB!  smile

(I sold my 20GB WinPod on ebay last week for $425 - I SAVED money by upgrading!)

Can you get a Compusa Tap?
I know Best Buy won’t offer warranty on the the Dell iPods. ;-(

And thanks for the cheap item suggestions.
The cheapest one is indeed the $4 network cable wink.

Thanks Dealmac.
After reading your tip, I bought the 30GB iPod from Dell ($404). However, I really wanted an extended warranty, so I went to my local Best Buy, showed a sales expert my invoice, and asked nicely if he would match the price. As you all know, they dont usually match online prices - but I told them I wanted the 4 year warranty ($40), and pleaded with them to go ask JOE, a Manager at the store who knows how NOT to lose a customer.

They were surprised that Joe agreed give me the 30GB for $399 (he had given me a great deal on a 20GB last year), so I walked out with my 30GB, a 4 year warranty and a big smile on my face.

Oh, I cancelled the Dell order.
Thanks again Dealmac!
