Ok, I've updated this a bit: Now that I have my Powerbook, I need an iPod to go along with it. I have put pretty much all my music into iTunes and it came out to 4.5GB worth of songs. The music I have left to put on it are 50-100 songs from a friend, 7-8 CDs coming in the mail, and then music I will be buying. I am trying to decide between the 6GB mini and the 30GB iPod photo. I like the mini for several reasons: It's smaller, I like the casing better, and it comes with better battery life. On the other hand, the iPod photo is only about $65 more since Id want to buy an AC adapter with the mini, it does let me have room to grow, and let's me have access to my entire library of songs and pictures while traveling in Europe this summer and living there next year. What do you guys think? Is the extra $65 worth the photo considering the pros of the mini?
