No offense was intended I do realize there are many people more knowledgeable than me about computers, and I can't argue that at all. I'd never own a Mac personally, but do understand the halo surrounding the Mac name and their products.

Speaking of, anyone ever change a battery in their iPod? I have a 30gb 1st Gen video that doesn't hold a charge. Is it a task I can undertake myself? Or recommendation for places to get batteries.

I read on ebay you can get a turbo kit for $1,500 that will add 300hp on top of what you already have! you should def buy one way high quality.
no worries, and look it up on ifixit, shouldn't be hard at all if you can get the part

CATIA is a dirty tramp, until you figure out its sweet spots, and how to make it moan. Then its easy as apple pie on a fall afternoon.
