Do you need old system software disks to boot your vintage Mac?

I'm a total Apple addict, as you might tell.

2006 iPod Nano RED

This 4G iPod Nano RED was $199 when it was released in 2006. I just scored it for a mere $40. It’s mint in the box. I swear, sometimes I feel like I rob these people.

This is a very cool iPod. I don’t think I would have rocked the RED iPod out in public. Red’s never been my color, but I’m a big fan of limited edition Apple hardware. So this makes a great addition to the shelf. After all, iPod REDs are Apple Store exclusives.

The box was opened and used lightly by the previous owner. However, all the original accessories are included; still with the packing material. The USB cable even still has the plastic cap.

I’ve always found it cool how Apple has always assigned iPods identifiers that lets iTunes and OS X identify and assign a unique icon to them. I think you’ll agree that any other manufacture would just have used a generic icon. iTunes picked this iPod up no problem, and actually knows it’s a Product RED iPod.


It also appears in the Finder as a RED iPod. I don’t know, I just think that’s cool.

After having so many white and silver iPods in my collection, it seems strange seeing a splash of color in there. Maybe when it comes to picking up some of the newer Shuffles and Nanos, I might spring for some in color.
