How is the video encoded (codec-wise) and what is the file extension on the subtitle file?

If you plan on gaming a lot, I'd stick with XP because you'll get significantly better performance.

Not only is it only for college students, you need to have the MBP and the iPod on the same receipt to receive the $200 rebate. There's a $100 MIR for select printers as well.

AllOfMP3 was shut down a while ago due to copyright concerns. It was a great site while it lasted. I used to be able to get a song for about 5-10 cents, versus $0.99 like the iTunes store.

If you're stuck in the boonies, chances are you'll be stuck with 3G service at best, if you can get cell reception. Surfing with 3G is painfully slow so you might want to consider that as well if you...

I try to keep all of my music 320kbps or above, lossless (FLAC) if possible. 192kbps is tolerable and 128kbps and lower is a no go.
