Is it worth buying a case for the latest iPod Nanos? i know the old nanos were very scratch however what is the current ones like?

I recently brought one and would prefer to not have a case but if i need one well ill get one ;)

get a sock or a pouch, you don't need ultimate protection

My 10-year-old daughter has a second-generation nano. She treats just as any 10-year-old would (very rough), and 3 months later it still doesn't have a scratch on it.

Save your money, forget the case.

You might want to get some of that sticky film to help protect the display screen. The rest of it is quite scratch-resistant, and as it's flash memory-based, there's virtually no worry about shock damage.

Of course, your mileage may vary. If you're into skateboarding or some other sport where the nano may suddenly go skidding along concrete or asphalt, you might want to get one of those clear silicone skins.

As for your other question, I'd unplug it when it's finished recharging rather than leave it attached "for days on end", as you put it. If a power surge hits your computer, your nano would be safe, and with a little ingenuity you could restore at least part of your library from the nano (if the need arose).
