Thanks for all the info. However, as of this morning I went from waiting for an X1 S28, Glacier Silver with only premium (which I believe is now in California and should be on its way to my closest dealership soon) to placing an order on one with Ultimate, Lighting, and Harmon-Kardon. In Mineral Grey. I just realized that it is foolish to compromise on what you want when it comes to a purchase like this, as long as I can stay within my budget (which I did, just barely). So I guess the IPod thing will definitely work out.
Now I have to wait another 8 weeks +. Oh well! I'll survive...
