I don't have one but I would if there wasn't a U2 tour coming up. The price of an iPod is the price I'd spend on a plane ticket and hotel stay for a weekend to go to a concert. A weekend away from home and seeing U2 live is way more important to me right now. I'll get one eventually.

No. I kind of want one though (I'm such a label whore, ).

My battered discman is my best friend.

I have one, and it's great, but I don't use it all the time. Usually when I listen to music, I'm either at home or in the car, and both those spots have stereos.

It *is* nice to be able to listen to U2 while snowboarding, though.

I do not and do not plan to buy one. I am poor and have 3 kids and cannot afford such fun toys for myself. I didn't even consider it.

My dad gave me a 40 GB (newest model) for Christmas. Totally unexpected, considering it cost $400! I didn't really care before one way or another whether I owned an iPod, but now that I do I'm in love. These things are so amazing...

No, dont own one. I'm still on dial up so what would be the point? I also dont like mp3 sourced material either. The only thing that could push me to buy one is if I go DSL or cable next year and the only way I will do that is if U2 does official bootlegs and they only way to get them is download them. THEN I will consider buying an IPOD. Otherwise, no thank you.

Is $400 not a lot of money to you guys? That's like my 2 week grocery and gas budget, I couldn't even image buying one item with it.

Yeah, no kidding. To me, $400 = two months rent and a bit leftover for food. I don't think my parents have ever spent even CLOSE to that amount just for my present since paying the hospital bill for my birth!

I don't know why ipods are so expensive anyway. You can get huge hard drives for less than $100 and that's basically what the ipod is - a hard drive for music.

I don't spend $400 on total Christmas shopping bill, must be nice to be able to blow that on one gift and still have other stuff

it's a ton of money to me too but I do save to travel every few months. I've even taken up short term weekend jobs just to make enough for a plane ticket. So I guess I'd sacrifice a trip to get an iPod....if I really had to have one and U2 was not going on tour. But U2 is going on tour and I have no desire for anything U2 right now other than to see them live.

I get out of town every couple months too, I have to or I'd go crazy and die here. I find a motel in the mountains for like $40 bucks a night and eat out at a cheap place. It breaks the monotony of life and keeps me going!

And yes, for that price you could see a couple shows, that's what I want anyway!

I'd rather have trips and concerts than 'stuff' anyway I guess.

$400 is a TON of money to me. I cut all of my "fun" spending to start socking away money for my iPod...but it was still gonna take me awhile. My family bought one for me though.

$400 is a lot of money. I for one cannot be tossing out that much money right now. The price I am sure will drop and something better will come along next year. It is too expensive to keep up with the trends. I will continue to lug around my portable CD player when I work out.
