I'm looking to buy an ipod now that my trusty Rio500 has finally died. I'm looking into just getting a 10GB one since that is much more space than I'll ever need and would like to keep the cost as low as possible. Things like the cradle, carrying case, and wired remote aren't important to me. It seems that not too long ago there was a redesign on the ipod's button arrangement. Is this merely a cosmetic difference or is it more substantial than that? Compusa.com has the older 10GB ipod for $229.88 which seems like a really good deal to me. The newer 10GB ones are $299. Is there much of a difference between these two that would make me want to get the newer version? Or will the older version suffice, especially in light of the price difference? Oh and one last thing. . .I'm under the impression that now that Apple has released Windows software for the ipod the older version's "mac only" label no longer applies? Downloading it is no big deal for me but I want to make sure there wasn't some change where the old version won't work, even with Windows software. I appreciate the advice. Thanks.
