    I wanna get something that small and light, that's good for excersising, and etc. And I'm tired of burning CD's and carrying around bulky discmans. But I also don't wanna throw out that much money into an iPod. So is there any MP3 that works on the Mac?

    There's a reason the iPod is number one. It's the best device.

    iPod shuffle is ridiculosy small and light, not to mention very cheap.

    Yea but I want one with a screen. I was getting excited when I saw the price but, does it work really easily without a screen?

    Buy an iPod Shuffle if you're only going to use it for work-outs and such.

    iPod sets the standard for innovation, ease of use and beauty. There is no substitute.

    Buy an iPod.

    Yep :)

    No need for screen when you only have 200 songs (absolute max).

    Cool, you'll love it. I would buy one if I hadn't just spent £300 on a mixing desk...

    Yea and I guess I only have 90 songs on my iTunes lol. How are the songs organized? Like Alphabetically with song title or artist? Or random?

    Nano isn't really that expensive either. It's worth it. I personally own two of them. :)

    You can have it in Shuffle mode, which plays them in a random order, or you can just place your songs onto it in the order you want and they play according to that order.

    If you add podcasts, they always get played ahead of the songs and according to their release date.

    Look here (the Apple Store Canada). If you really want to use other MP3 players you can use XNJB.

    Well the only reason I was asking about an MP3 is because some fo them are like $30. But I;m just going to get a shuffle.

    That's arguable, ease of use & design yes. Sound quality, not so much.

    Color?

    Congrats on the Shuffle. I bought 4 of em to use for gifts. Everyone loves getting a shuffle.

    What color did you get? I think the orange, green, and blue are all amazing.

    I wanted the blue or green but they were out so I got the orange. It's so cool. Just a question, how long does it take for the battery to charge?
