5 years life on the drive, eh?
Thus, using the iPod every single day for that 5 years costs you 27 cents (for the 30GB version).  Or $1.92 every week if you listen to it at least once a week.

So can I stick the 30 Gig model in my 10 Gig Ipod?

It would be interesting to see someone update their old ipods with 30G drives and make it work.  I can’t see how it can’t be done if you get a hold of one of these drives.
