I want to get another ipod so I can permanently store my nano in a nike+ armband. 80GB would allow me to free up a lot of disc space on my macbook pro as I would use it to store all my music(with a backup on an external). Also, videos would be great to have in between classes since I live about 30min. walk from some classes. But its expensive The shuffle is small, will be easy to carry(just clips on) when I want to just go to class in soccer shorts and a tshirt and is very inexpensive. Yet ill still have the lack of space problem on my mac and no videos to keep me entertained between classes, but maybe I could study? I am leaning towards the shuffle entirely for the expense issue as I am taking four trips around and out of the country in the next year and then will be studying abroad in Australia beginning next July.
