well I'm going to get a 30gb ipod off ebay.com and get it sent over to United Kingdom, which may be more risky as there is little I can do if I dont get it.... But, no shops in America will actually send a 30gb ipod internationally (because apple wont let them), and I want one from US because of price and volume limitations. So ebay is my only option, and a pretty good option in my opinion seeing as they are cheaper than in the shops.
But I'll be careful, I'm always careful on ebay (I bought my 10gb 2nd gen ipod off ebay.com).
You have to take risks in life, and this risk will ceartinly be worth it.
