Do yourself a favor...don't spend the bucks for Apple's iPod dock when you get more for less money with the Maxell P-3. If you need the cool white color, this dock has it. If your are worried about whether or not your iPod will fit, the dock comes with inserts for different sizes, up to 60 GB. I even put my 4th generation 20 GB iPod, which has a skin on it, in my charger. Need cables? The Maxell dock has everything you need. You can connect to speakers or your Mac/PC from the dock. And, yes, the P-3 really does charge. Unless you absolutely must have fruit on your iPod dock, go with the Maxell P-3.
