So I’m expecting my free 4th gen Ipod in the mail any week now and I’ve been going over exactly what to do. I’m going to sell it no matter what. Even if I end up with a 4th gen Ipod I would rather get it from Best Buy and get their $50 warrantee so I don’t have to worry about the stupid battery dying on me and having to fork over $100 for a new one.
But I’ve also been considering getting an iRiver 120 because of the added features and that I’ve heard the sound quality is better. To be honest, I don’t think I would use the radio or recorder much but considering the iPod doesn’t come with a dock, the line in/out would be nice. A dock would cost about $40 I’ve heard. The non-replaceable battery for the iPod also makes me despise it. I’ll be damned if I have to pay $100 w/o a warrantee or $50 for an extended Best Buy warrantee. I’m freaking torn. I like the iPod’s style and ease but I don’t like having to pay extra money for equipment the last gen had and for a warrantee. Any opinions?
