    I am between a zune 120 or an ipod 120 for my external HD and to stick all my media on. I know you have to hack the zune to be used as an HD, but doesnt the new iPod just come like that?

    Also, can I still sync it with iTunes?

    All Hard Disk based iPods can be used as an External drive as long as you enable Disk mode.
