    The theory was, in case my Macbook is damaged or lost, I have a working back-up that I can 'restore' to my next Macbook.

    This thread and the (in)ability to restore from an Ipod is making me re-think the Ipod purchase.

    Is the Ipod a practical 'back-up" solution?
    I agree with chscag. Get an external hard drive. And, if you can, get the iPod too, but not for security.

    Thanks group. I have an external hard drive and use it. It's the playlists I want to preserve. I suppose one is for security and the other (iPod) is for convenience; not recreating the playlists and occasional mobility (I find the Air quite mobile).
