I'm thinking of getting a new Nano, especially now that they're less prone to scratches. I know flash players have the edge over the big iPod in terms of speed and sound. I returned my orginial nano because it was just too delicate. I mean my 30GB has a dent on it because i mistakenly threw it accross the room while trying to describe something to a friend. I need something with strong build the aluminium provides, plus this would match my PB. Anyway, this would also mean i can use my 30GB iPod as a full backup HDD as my entire music library is 3GB worth...for now anyways with the rest being files, folders, software in dmg formats. Plus these are amazing prices. I'd wait for christmas but requesting presents for christmas doesn't really fly here, meaning you never get what you really want, just a bunch of other useless stuff (oh its a cook book, thanx, i'll definately read it...NOT!). Bottom line if you want something, get it, cos it won't be coming on your birthday or on christmas. Do i really NEED it?..No but i want it. Anyhue what do you guys think?
