Okay, Apple’s got a seriously awesome entry into the portable MP3 player market in the iPod. At $400 the price seems kind of steep for a mere 5GB of space, but it’s certainly an appealing pack of card sized device. I want one and so will everyone else if they own a Mac. And that’s certainly the catch at this point as it requires MacOS X or 9.2 and a computer with Firewire.
It’ll be interesting to see if the iPod is the kind of thing that can persuade users to jump on board the Macintosh platform. I’m sure that’s Apple’s hope.
So how long until we get the first warranty flaunting web page detailing the innards of these babies? I predict that in less than a month some will have figured out how to add a bigger harddrive. Well, maybe not. Based on the width measurement of 2.43″ it must have a smaller hard drive than most notebooks come with. The one in my PowerBook is more like 2.75″ wide.
