  3. more HD space
  4. plays video
  5. black and white models, like nano
  6. 30GB: $299. 60GB: $399.

New iTunes:

The Geek Code desperately needs updating, but in any case here's mine (as of 2010-02-28):

Version: 3.12

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
