Best Place to buy a new iPod 80 GB????

Hi there. I am looking to buy a new iPod Photo (80 GB). I did try buying directly form Apple.com...however they do not ship to where i am (San Juan, Puerto Rico). Can anyone suggest a good online electronics company that might ship here??

Thanks in advance.

amazon says they only ship iPods to the US, so I'm not sure if PR would be included

Yeah i tried Amazon.com right after Apple.com...apparently they will sell certain things on Amazon and ship to PR, but iPods (and anything of any significant value) will not be shipped here. Shame really.

This is more about shopping advice than music so is moved to the Other Forum where you might get a few pointers. Of course there are ipod-related threads in Tech Talk and maybe the subject will come up in an Otter Farm search....

Is the price of the 60GB going to drop massively? Looks like it's time to eBay it

Isn't there a Macy's in Puerto Rico? Do they have one of the iPod vending machines?

The topic promises the best place to buy a new iPod 80 GB but does not deliver.

Question marks should have given away that answers were not forthcoming.

My school's Apple store isn't showing any discounts on iPods

That's freakin' cool.

I think the bigger question is when were these photos taken. There are a lot of folks out there that still want to get minis.

I actually took my own picture of the one in the Macy's in San Francisco. Maybe I'll post it later.

There are a couple of these machines in the ATL airport too. I haven't seen any in a Macy's though. Can you imagine buying an $300+ item from a vending machine?

Reminds me of the vending machine in Tokyo where you can order an entire meal.



Walk into the place, put your money into the machine, order your meal (and your soft drink), receive ticket, and place ticket on counter. The woman behind the counter will get you your food.

No Japanese speaking skills required!
