or wait for the Iphone on the 7th

#4

$199 new, nice woot!

#5

$149 direct from apple with 1 year warranty rather than woot’s 90 day warranty. No thanks.

#6

the $149 is for the 4GB Nano, not the 8GB. The 8GB is $199. Please don’t post misleading information.

#7

Uh wrong. The refurb price is $149 on Apple’s site. Look it up. So no, not misleading at all.

#8

can’t we all just get along?

#9

Oh then I apologize. I didn’t see the refurbs. I assumed you were talking about the normal 4gb nano at $149. My bad.

#10

What? No Pink?!

#11

Carp deal, if you ask me, given that they’ve sold 8GB Sansa e280’s for about $70.

ABI comparison

The only difference I see is that the Nano has a larger screen (320x240 vs. 220x176) and supports H.264 in OF vs. MPEG-2 in Rockbox.

Weigh that against the lack of microSD expandability, FM tuner, microphone, or user-replaceable battery.

I’d pass. I don’t think the larger screen would be worth the extra $60 for me.

Perhaps the Sansa View, with its larger (240x320) screen and more OF video formats, would be a more valid comparison (especially if it eventually gets Rockbox ported for the extra audio formats). How long before Woot gets some of these respiffied?

#12

not too shabby woot, I wouldn’t mind one of these if I didn’t just buy a sansa from you guys

#13

The extra 9 months in warranty is unlikely to come into play. I’d take the slight gamble and go for this if I hadn’t bought one 4 days ago. d’oh!

#14

Tempting, but I’ll pass.
Already got a Zune from Woot and I like it.

#15

This is a really good deal in my opinion!! The only downside to this is the warranty…but I’m willing to take my chances. :slight_smile: Totally excited because I was just about to buy the 4GB last week, and decided to wait, WOOHOOO Go green

#16

Anyone know if there is some sort of Rockbox like thing that can be used with this?

Being tied to Itunes is a pain IMO. I don’t want to have to install it on every PC I hook this up to.

#17

Every September Apple comes out with a slightly improved model with twice the capacity for the same price or slash the price by half.

September 2005, Gen 1 Nano 2GB for $199.
September 2006, Gen 2 Nano 4GB for $199.
September 2007, Gen 3 Nano 8GB for $199.

$129 is a good deal but I’ll wait another 3 months for the 4th Gen Nano. At the current trend, an 8GB model will drop to $149 brand-new. Looking at how much an improvement the 3rd Gen is over the 2nd, I’ll wait.

#18

Just to clarify, Rockbox gets installed on the MP3 player, not on the PC.

Rockbox works on earlier iPods, but not this generation.

You need a media player/syncer that works with iPods; supposedly WinAmp works with iPods, but you’ll have to check it out.

#19

Do the Nano refubs come in an official Apple Nano box? How exactly are the refurbs? They aren’t scratched or anything like that, right?

#20

If you don’t want iTunes, just download songbird and get the iPod plug in. It works great.

enjoy
