My 11 years old son is asking for an iPod for Christmas. He's using a Powermac G5 perctly capable for his limited needs.


I've seen that the new iPods require iTunes 10.7, that's just for Intel Macs.


Is there a way to use a new iPod nano with his Mac or should I go for a generic MP3 player. There's no way I will buy a new computer just for my kid to sync an iPod.


I could get an old Windows XP box to use iTunes, but this means another computer to support and space on the table. If this is the way to go, I much prefer to move him completely to Windows.


So... Is there any software that would allow him to sync a new iPod nano with his Mac.


Thanks to all for your help.
