Right now, I'm looking to drop an investment into a decent iPod (either an 8GB touch or a Classic). A 16GB is out of question right now. Thing is, I'm not sure if 8GB would be enough. My music collection is of a hefty size. Then again, I usually tune into Last.FM when I'm feeling musical. But it would seem that streaming music on the Touch would drain the battery life pretty fast. Anyone have any idea about how many hours the Touch would keep up if I were to continuously stream music from Last.FM? I'm still considering the Classic because of the tremendous amount of space, and the super long battery life (I'm horrible when it comes to charging). But the Touch would definitely cut back on the time I spend on my desktop for non study-related things (checking email, Google Reader, etc..). Would it be better to just purchase the Classic now, then save the money up and purchase a Touch with more space (more than 8GB) next year (then gift my dear Classic to someone, of course)? Also, on the Classic.. is it true that the notes can only have 1024 characters? I heard that from someone, but am feeling rather skeptical towards that piece of info.. --- Also, I'm considering purchasing a Macbook next year, at the time of my graduation. I plan on heading into Graphics. What would you recommend for someone who'd like a laptop with enough space, at a reasonable price? Thanks in advance.
