I am getting tired of my iPod Shuffle because I really would like to have a screen and more disc space. Due to a combination of being too cheap and wanting to wait for new iPods to come out, I think that a good compromise would be to buy one of the refurbished iPod minis that the apple store is selling. They are about $149. My only concern would be the weight since I like to wear them around my neck. Let me know your opinions. Thanks.
