Hi. Since my ipod touch died, I'm thinking about replacing it with a cheap variant for just listening to music, nothing else. You can purchase a used ipod mini in acceptable condition für about 10 $ nowadays. You just have to replace the battery and eventually put a compact flash inside. What about battery life? Anyone still using it? I don't need cover art but what about playlists? I'm often listen to self-compiled playlists. Does the ipod mini remember the position where you left of listening when it has shut down after 48 hours? I think the ipod nano (1st gen) had that particular problem, maybe the ipod classic (4th gen) too.
