I currently own a 3G 20GB iPod thats about 6 months old now. My only real beef with it is the battery life, which I think is brutal. It's not that hard to recharge it during everyday use, but if I'm on a long trip it seems to run out quickly. I'm thinking about buying an iPod mini for my girlfriend, but I'm not sure I can justify it because the battery seems to be the same as the 3G iPod. The reason that I think she'd like the Mini better, however, is that she doesn't have that huge of a music collection, and the Mini is smaller and more feminine in general. Can anyone comment on the Mini's battery life or have a suggestion as to which one I should choose? Thanks.
