Hey Guys, we seem to be lugging our MacBook around the world all to often recently and I am considering a PMP instead of having to use the MB all the time.

Main objectives are:
Music Playback- iTunes compatable so that I can move playlists etc over to it and would like the artwork to work as well.

Movies- Need to play Divx/h.264 in what ever container .mpg or .avi etc

Photos- again would love it to play well with iPhoto but not as important as itunes

WiFi- Wireless syncing and internet browsing (ideally 802.11n but that is dreaming)

Last but not least need it to be 7inch touchscreen.

So I have come up with the Archos 705, pretty much ticks all the boxes (except the 802.11n Smile ) but for the life of me I cannot find anything about how it plays with iTunes/Mac. I know they say it is 'compatable' but I dont want to have to drag/drop actual files from my folders, I would rather drag them out of iTunes/iPhotos directly.

Anyway, anyone have one, know anything about it's 'Mac-friendly-ness' Laughing

It is mac compatible from what I've read but it won't play with itunes in the same way an iPod would.

yeah I can see it is 'compatable' but there are varying degrees of 'compatable' isn't there Very Happy

Anyone know if the files can be just dragged out of iTunes onto the Archos and the album art go with it? That is the main thing really, I can pretty much deal with the rest.

Those Archos 705s are totally sweet, but I think it's just drag and drop. You'll need to look into applications like SyncTunes or XNJB for more of an automated syncing experience.
