has anyone here ordered from apple and now has a code for $30 off $300+?

I you could help me out and pm me if you have one, that would make me happy
They have a code for that? Aww... I went to Best Buy :P ... At Apple though, you get two free lines of laser-engraving on the back... which is pretty neat.

...my favorite thing about it is how it takes video in Mpeg4 format at 30 fps!!!! To give you an idea of the quality, it's like Cable TV or Direct TV quality (but maybe just a bit sharper)

tell me what you guys think!
7.2 megapixels! Insane... Nice camera... Insanely nice camera.

In theory, yes. In reality, you get only a couple hours of playback when playing videos. I have the 30GB version, and while the video function is not really that practical, it is still a solid deal. My main reasons for getting it were the fact that it was thinner and lighter yet still had more space. It made it even better that I got it for free!

No. Doesn't kick the shit out of a portable DVD player for watching video.
But I can see how there are benefits to this over the last generation of ipod. At the beginning, I thought this was like ipod photo, where they just jacked the price up for no reason, without really improving anything.
Anyway, I think I will be ordering an ipod video. Mostly for the smaller size than anything else. Definitely not for video capability. I don't think I will ever put video on it. Maybe a few pictures though if it lets you use them as a background.

I was looking around online and it looked like when you order from some non-apple places, i think you can still get it engraved. for example,at ecost it looks like it is possible. I'm not sure if best buy has an option like that.

...but at Best Buy you have the option of buying a 4 year comprehensive plan!!! I know that other stores/online retailers offer this, but Best Buy is well known for being extremely lazy about it... in a good way... meaning that they would rather give you a brand new [insert shiny expensive tech gadget here] rather than go through the trouble of tryiing to fix it or shipping it out...

When encountered with broken merchandise that are considered to be relatively "cheap" purchases like an mp3 player (compared to plasmas, computer systems, and the like) Best Buy Techies will normally just glance at it (i.e. try to turn it on, shake it and see if water sloshes around, see if tire treads are on it from someone's 91 Honda Accord, whatever..) and then give you a brand new one right there and then... and if you're fortunate and the specific item you have has had an "upgrade", they'll give you that...

This is how my brother has managed to get a brand new IPod (the largest capacity available) every time they come out with a new generation (as soon as a better version comes out, the bastard shakes his to the point where the spindle on the hard drive gets knocked loose, and then he goes to the nearest Best Buy and feigns innocence)

Best Buy even gives you the option to purchase another item, something more expensive, and you can just pay the difference (they count the price of your item at the time of purchase, not the current deppreciated market value)...


I have never been a fan of retail, and sure Best Buy marks up their prices by a huge margin, but they make it worth your while with that insurance policy....

Best Buy doesn't engrave... But I think I'm going to get some engraving done somewhere else.

Whatever I put... it will contain the word: 1337... Just because.

I read it as "my bans roxxor you". I guess it could be taken either way.
