Yeah the Nano seems like a great device to abuse and take everywhere with you, resistant, flash, long battery life and being small helps and 8GB is very decent, then again the iPod does have the videos and bigger screen, I went with a 30GB iPod the first time around, its nice but it gets TOO scratched, its ridiculous, I have like 10000 songs but I only really need place to store 1000-2000, but videos are nice and so are games... hmm...zap2 said:I've thought this one over myself(not because I want either, as I'd rather a 4Gb Nano, because I don't need 8Gbs for songs(can just fit on a 4Gb Nano), and I like colors, and I have a 60Gb to cover my video needs) On to you
The 8Gb Nano is not a bad deal..the old Nano and Minis were 4Gbs-6Gb for 250, so if Apple had left the 30Gb at 300, the 8Gb Nano would look nicer, but one can have 22Gbs more for the same price, why not?
The Nano does beat out the 5G in more then one place
Nano-Harder to scratch, Flash Memory(not skipiing when you move or the Nano moves) Longer battery life. Much Smaller
The 30Gb 5G-Has Vidoe and Games(you might want it one day) and the screen it much bigger. You have 22Gbs more. You can back up important things on your 5G, while your 8Gb on a Nano might be used up faster.
How many songs do you have? If your nearing 8Gbs i'd say go for the 5G, but if you only have 500-1000, and its been like that for a while , the 8Gb might be better, because the 22Gbs on your Video would get wasted
