    agreed with margo. The price on these, even without the markup that a company like apple will put on it. Will keep it out of the market for a while yet.

    Good, I'm still waiting for an MP3 player with this sort of capacity before I upgrade from my 30GB Creative Zen (which uses a standard hard disk).

    Excellent. Once the price has dropped down to mainstream levels, this will be very handy.

    That explains the STUPID prices at apple.

    No offence, but no matter the apple product, its just too expensive for what it does.
    Does no one realise that in the U.K we have a new budget thats cutting everything. No one has the money these days for a 1st gen. ipod never mind the nappypad.

    I would love to have this embedded in a laptop, or slate. Offering quick boot times and no mechanical booting for multiple OS's would be picked up so easy. Push one button for web browsing and cloud computing, then let the OS load an image of a real OS for real work, and not even have a hard drive.. Well, I can dream.
