I think that's true unless you are synching DRM protected music. Then you can only have it on a limited amount of devices (5?). But yeah having a couple devices shouldn't hurt whether that limitation exists.

I don't think there's a limit to the number of iPods that DRM-ed songs can be put on. (Dontcha just love it? You pay for it, you get fucked. You steal it, do with it as you please)

Also, you may need to upgrade to a more current version of iTunees to use the new iPods. But you only need one copy and it will work with as many iPods/iPhones/etc as you care to use.

^ what shaun3000 said. unlimited ipods to one machine, 5 machines to one account (for DRM'd music), IIRC.
