I think it's deceiving when people dwell on the screen's brightness because i consider the 60GB 5.0's screen too bright as it is and turned it down840quadra said:At this point your thoughts should be on..
1. Disk space
2. physical size (as stated previous)
3. Search function (only on 5.5)
4. Brighter screen (only on 5.5)
Personally, I would be fine living without the brighter screen, and search "may" become part of the 5.0 software if as many people are complaining about it as I have been seeing on Apples site, and here.
I would go for the larger disk space.
