Sorry to be annoying if this has been asked...but does anyone know which stores in downtown Toronto are carrying it?

I tried CompuCentre in the Eaton Centre, but they're sold out.

Compusmart on Yonge @ Richmond

Santa got me a 40 gig that I am using as an external firewire Hard disk for the laptop while I am on the road. Its perfect to store photos, and lots of 'em.

The most your'e gonna save any which way is about $10 man
The margins on them AREN'T that spectacular.
If you wanna save more money, buy it from Ebay.
Costsco will probably undercut everyone by $10 or something, but don't expect one place to have it $100 cheaper.

I went there - but they're all sold out. :(

I'm going to check that apple store at College/Spadina...

yes and no. the battery is a typical LiIon rechargeable that has the same recharging profile of any LiIon rechargeable. the one problem was due to their use of power while "shut down" ... ie. they didn't really shut down and your battery would drain by quite a bit when not in use thus making you think you were getting less juice out of it.

they've improved this considerably and, yes, you can get a replacement battery for it.

Costco sells the 40G (i think that's what it is) for about $349
(don't quote me on that though) and the 60Gb version is in the high $500's.
I'm not exactly sure because i don't pay attention to the prices of stock. I just put things on the shelves... then again, iPods aren't something we just put on the shelf... either way, it's not like we sell huge loads of them. I've yet to get one from Lock-up for a customer.

I was unable to find the price yesterday cause
A) someone took the sign
B) I didn't have the time to check inventory.

sorry folks.
Maybe tonight.

Burton has made some sweet gear specifically for the ipod. A coat that you can control the ipod from controls on your sleeve and a bag that you can control the ipod from the shoulder strap...Check out www.burton.com

i just bought an eMac and the best price i found was at the UofT computer shop. (I didn't look at iPods). They have a 'student rate'. You might want to borrow someone's student I.D. but they've never ever asked me to show mine.

Funny you should mention this as I was trying to buy two ipods today for people through UofT. They are sold out of them as well and won't be getting some back in for a little while.
