I have a friend who is trying to figure out what kind of MP3 player to buy. I have had iPods since the original 5 GB and am trying to convince him to spend the little extra cash on a new 20 or 40 GB. Can anyone give me some good reasons why he should get an iPod over a Creative Zen? Here's what he wrote me: "I'm considering buying a (hard-drive) MP3 player and looking for input. Don't need anything major- right now considering a Creative 30GB Zen. Seems like good deal for only $200. Sure, could buy an iPod, but I haven't heard any real benefits over the Creative. I'm just looking for something to drag to work, along for bike rides, and possibly RF or Mini-plug into a car stereo. Don't need to spend more the $200-300."
