Australian IT said Australia s the cheapest place to buy ipod. That is becuase our aus dollar falling a lot. The shop bought the stock when our aus dollar was high. Let's say, they bought the iPod from Apple for US$100, and sold AUD$200(=US$150). Now they are still $200, but is equal to US$100. So, that is cheaper. Just the price has not updated yet.
I will consider to buy a netbook if that is in 3G. Because I mainly use that to connect internet. You can say I can use wifi. But in Australia, that is not many places have wifi. 3G internet is the best opinion. That is the most important, the netbook is still like a toy. That is not very useful for myself.
