As with most people, I was totally caught up in all the excitement and fervor surrounding the mini, and last friday placed my order for a silver iPod mini from MacMall. Well just now, I called up and changed my order to a 15GB iPod, here's why: As much as I love the form factor of the mini, I already have 3.7GB of music on my computer, and plan to get a lot more. I don't feel like every day shuffling playlists onto and off of my iPod, forever worrying about not having enough room etc... And I know you can't listen to thousands of songs in 8 hours, or even 200 songs, but I at least, would like knowing that I have all of my songs on hand for whenever the mood strikes me. I know that the iPod mini is a very beautiful product, with an arguably better designed scroll wheel and buttons, but the iPod to me is just as beautiful, if not more so. The iPod is more than a music player, it's a whole state of mind in a way, it has its own culture and identity which the mini just doesnt have. (at least not yet) I also know that the iPod mini is more than fine for a large market of consumers, I guess it's just not for me, although for a few days I thought it was. I encourge everyone who has ordered an iPod mini but hasn't had it ship yet to please re-consider your order, I did, and I think I made the right decision. Just my 2 cents.
