Yep, I still have a 32GB 1st gen. I don't use it much these days, as my iPhone sees a lot more action. It still works and looks perfect, though. it's been in an agent18 case since day one, and there isn't a scratch on it.
Cool on the touch. Matt I noticed in your sig that you have a 750gb hard drive in your 2009 mini?
Did you have to do the squeeze thing to get it to fit? I'd like to do the same thing on a 2009 mini.
