    1GHz Athlon, 512 SDRAM. Just timed it again. 3 seconds with minimized one, and 6 seconds with full.

    It's AAC, not ACC.

    AAC is not a proprietary format, but Apple has extended it to include, namely, DRM functionality. Many other music services use AAC with their own extensions.

    MP3 is not cut-and-dry, either. There are extensions to the format that allow for VBR, ID3 tags, etc.

    I have 1.2 GHz Duron (OC to 1.32) and 256 SDRAM, and it taks 6 seconds to load on mini, and 10 in full.
    I suppose the RAM is the difference.

    The problem with VBR, MP3Pro, etc is that on some portable devices like mine, it has problems like the song resets to zero before finishing, it stays in one place doing crazy sounds and the time goes backwards (really), etc

    Computer memory is not the problem, the problem is portable devices memory. My one has 96MB and just enough to fit 20 3 minutes songs more or less.

    The smart playlists in iTunes are excellent imo, especially if you have an iPod.

    Smart playlists are just like normal playlists except that they are based on criteria and can update themselves automatically.

    Man... I can't believe iTunes only sells 128kbs MP3's... it's like they try and prevent people downloading illegal content and then come back and are like "download these expensive crappy quality MP3's and let us rape the artists some more.

    Honestly filb, how can you stand listening to 128kbs? It kills me every time someone plays that cruddy quality music =x

    Really? 128 kbs?
    I wont' buy that! It's not worth the download.

    Are they poor and don't have money for more bandwidth or what?

    Anyway- Has iTunes some equalizing fuction? Like Winamp, you can put a diferent equalizer preset for each type of music, and create custom ones...

    They don't sell 128 Kb/sec MP3s. They sell AAC files which are higher quality at the same bitrate.

    Naw... no offense filburt, but they're just as bad.. I've listened to them before, they're the same as 128kbs MP3's, still got the nasty distorted cymbals that scream 128 bloody horror. Also you sure they don't? I thought that I saw my stepdad buying MP3's off iTunes...
