    HP Ipod and Apple Ipod

    I was looking around at iPods and I saw the "HP + iPod" on Newegg. Whats the difference bewtween the HP version and the normal Apple version? Price? Quality? Nothing?

    Nothing at all besides the HP logo. I would go for the apple iPod. I heard the HP won't help you with iPod problems.

    EDIT: Also HP doesn't have these.

    I have always wanted an Ipod since they came out years ago, I just never had the money. I still don't. The Ipod Photo looks awesome, though! The first Ipod with a color screeen and 60gb storage!

    I do have a question though; once the battery dies completely, would I have to put all the music back on a second time? There may be times when I have to leave it for months without power.

    No, the battery will never really drain 100%. Unless the user is an idiot. When it drains enough a message will appear and the iPod will shutdown. Even if you keep on starting it back up intill the battery is 100% drained, the music should stay on there.

    THe Ipod uses a hard drive very much like you find in a desktop PC. It won't lose the songs even if you take the battery out.

    Thanks. That is good to know. I only wondered because my Palm Pilot works like that. If the battery drains all the way, then everything is deleted. Now that I know it won't be, all the more reason to get one!

    Its like your computer. Do you loose all your information when you turn off your computer? (Rhetorical question, I hope the answer is no)

    I just bought a 4g 20gb iPod the other day.... I found out one thing: NO DOCK, NO REMOTE CONTROL!!

    BOO!!

    Besides that, the iPod is a work of art and is quite a well-versed mp3 machine.

    Oh, I would like to add... if you go on apple.com, you can order iPods and get a student discount (10% off i think) on them as well. Oh and dont overlook the U2 ipod special edition, those things come with a dock and dont show scratches as easily as their normal "white" counterparts (the S.E. are black and red).

    Apple does random checks if you are truely a student. They may call you and ask you to give proof. Like a copy of your school i.d card stuff like that. Or they may not call you and your home free.

    If you are close to a teacher, you can ask them to order it for you and you can pay them back. They offer the same thing to teachers in high school middle school etc. But for the student discount you need to be a college student. Ask an older brother or sister?
