    Ok, I just won a 2g nano yesterday, I allready got a 4g mini though. I like the look of the nano but all my friends got a lot of scratches on theirs. Besides that maybe I can still pick up a MB and get another nano (not sure though probably gonna buy a mac mini first till leopard is out).

    I can get around €70 for my mini (first rev), and around €140 for my sealed nano.
    Is the loss in space, scratch resistance worth the looks/color screen?

    I'd convert the nano into cash and wait for your mini to die, and then get the latest best thing. Depends a bit on how much music you have, but I think in practical terms the Nano is a downgrade and you might as well put the money to some better use.

    Definitly sell the nano. It's pointless downgrading to one just because it is smaller and looks better. The mini is fine and unless you have extremely small pockets it shouldn't matter that is a little bit bigger.

    Sell the mini keep the nano...def. The mini looks like a pile of **** in comparison. IMO

    I actually like the look/feel of the mini, the Nano feels a bit like a toy when held. I think I'm just gonna sell it yeah and probably get the next upgrade (a metal finish nano maybe?)
    @Brikeh what do you think of the 205bw btw? Thinking about buying it, never seen it in person though, does it look as good in real life as in the pictures?

    Ah yes, it looks very nice indeed. And best of all it's cheap :), I'm going to buy one as soon as I get a new apple.
