ok, I know that many other people have asked this question before, but I'm going to ask it again. I'm looking into getting a new iPod for my birthday (in June) and my parents asked which one I would want. i like both the Mini and the original, but I'm just not sure which would make more sense to have. I'm 18,going on 19, listen to music almost all the time now (spending lots of time doing engineering homework at a computer will change your listening habits lol) and right now my collection on my computer is 737 songs, 2.65 GB. With an educational dicount at the Apple store, the mini would cost me about $230, and the 15GB one would cost be about $270. Storage size wise, the mini would be perfect, as I only have just over 2.6 GB of songs, but would it be worth another $40 to get another 11GB of space for extra storage for files and what not? To me, the extra space isn't nescessity, and I think that the more "durable" form of the mini might lend it self better to different kinds of usage, especially working out. So basically, I'm leaning towards the mini, but I was wondering if there were any really good reasons that I should ge the Mini, or if I should get the 15GB one.
