Joining the ranks of the Nano-users

Joining the ranks of the Nano-users


OK ... I have bought a nano. Just the 1 gig. Not entirely sure I did the right thing, but everybody seems to like their nanos. BUT -- why did no one tell me about the Apple educators discount? Because I almost bought one slightly on sale, and you know? I did not know that Apple made it almost affordable to buy their products. I looked around their site and, while all the lovely Mac things are still more expensive, they aren't nearly as bad. I might even be able to think about buying a 12" G4 (do you know they have refurbished ones?). I wouldn't want it as my primary computer, but for travel and working in cafes??? I can type on a dinky keyboard for short periods...

Anyway, after a brief panic that I didn't have a USB2 port (I do ... I just don't know which one it is -- there are 4 USB ports, and only one is USB2), I can now await delivery of my gift. I don't think I bought myself anything when I got my job, so I'm justifying it that way!

Thanks, everybody for all your help and advice. It means a lot to me to know my friends will help me spend my money!

You did the right thing. iPods are awesome.

Excellent! Welcome to the company of the righteous. Email me your address and I'll send you your Tube. (It may take a few days, because it's packed deep in my luggage from the trip and I need to figure out exactly where.)

I will do that! Thanks!

Tiruncula? Righteous? Hah! You run a Linux box for a while and THEN we can talk righteous.

Congrats on the player -- I'm sure you'll get lots of enjoyment out of it. And remember that you can not only get educational discounts on hardware, but software as well. My father and sister, stateside, swear by http://www.academicsuperstore.com/
