Altec Lansing IM7 portable audio system

Hi,
I would like to purchase the Altec Lansing IM7 Portable Speaker System to use with my 40GB iPod.
1) It is not clear from the ads if the IM7 portable system could be used with my older, 40GB, 4th generation iPod. Could you please me if the dock of the IM7 will accept my older, 40GB iPod.
2) The IM7 Portable System has been around for awhile and has received good reviews. Is this the latest portable system from Altec Lansing or do they have a newer, portable system with comparable of better sound quality than the IM7?
Thanks.
Richard

Always check the manufacturers website for updates to products. The only update posted is to include a listing of compatibility with the current iPods but is the same product.

Thanks but I 'm still not sure

Hi Audrey,
Thanks so much for your response. Sorry for my naivete, but I 'm still not sure if the IM7 portable audio system is compatible with my 40GB, 4th generation iPod. In your email, a 40GB, 4th generation iPod is not in the list of iPods that are compatible with the IM7 portable audio system. However, when I went to the review web page for the IM7 mentioned in your email, one of the photos shows what looks like an iPod that is the same as or very similar to mine being attached to the IM7. When I went to the Altec Lansing page showing their IM7 (http://www.alteclansing.com/product_...s.asp?pID=IM7), it states that the IM7 is compatible with the iPod, iPod Mini, iPOd with color display, iPod Nano and iPod with video.
Perhaps it is staring me in the face, but I am still not getting it for sure. Specifically, do you think the IM7 is compatible with my 40GB iPod? Of course I would like to know for sure before ordering the IM7 via the web.
Thanks again.
Richard

4th generation iPod

Hi again Audrey,
My 4th generation, 40GB iPod does not have a color display. But from what you wrote, I assume that the IM7 has a docking station that will fit my iPod.
Thanks again for your time and patience with my questions.
Richard
