I have a budget of $300. I only have 1.4 GB's of music, but 17 GB's of video.. I really do not need to have all my video with me at once, as i usually only watch a tv episode or a video podcast or two. I also love the app store. I would love to be able to play super monkey ball and cube runner. finally i would have all the same features as my old 8GB iPhone, so I wouldnt be loosing much. This is where it gets tricky... I just want some reassurance the 8GB ipod touch would be better than the 80GB classic. the price point for 80GB compare to 8GB, (i know it is flash vs. hd but..) makes me rethink my purchase a bit.
