What’s the difference between the Apple 4G iPod and the HP 4G iPod?


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.
