i initially bought the nano because i thought 4gb was already so much music. now i think i was wrong because i often find myself struggling deciding which song to keep and which not (i have a gallery of roughly 100GB of music on my hdd) also, i recently subscribed to several podcast channels, some of which usually have video podcast, and the nano is incapable of playing that material. so, i'll sell it for $100 with the dock (although it's only 6 month old but it has my name engraved on its back). and i want to get an ipod video now. question is, should i go for the refub ones or the brand new ones? i have no doubt about the refub's qualities, i just wonder about their specs. i.e., are they from some old series? i also concern about batteries. is the 3.5 hours of video playback on the 30GB enough? i've never used a ipod video before, so i've no idea how it is to have one. could somebody share some experience with me?
