I'm thinking of buying an iPod this summer. (Nope I don't have one). I don't really listen to music, but I'm planning to try music this summer (scowls at "you are a freak" looks in the audience). I actually own 0 songs. Not one. I plan to buy some, and listen to them with the iPod obviously. This also mean I don't need huge spaces or anything. I also plan to use the iPod for storage for other stuff. I don't really plan to listen to music by name or anything, and would probably have it on shuffle 95% of the time. I also want it really small (so no regular iPod), and I don't want to spend too much on it. But since the 1 GB shuffle and the 4 GB mini are so close in price, I'm wondering what you guys think; pay the $50 and get a screen and scroll wheel, or get the 512 MB or 1 GB shuffle? I better stop babbling... Any suggestions?
