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!
