    I have a 5th gen 30GB. Why do I want a Nano? I actually had a dream that I bought a blue one. I don't even have a job.

    Why am I searching eBay for one?

    Because they're perdy? hehe I can honestly say I have no interest in them other than because I love collecting Apple gear. Besides the non-solid state memory, my 5g 60 GB is better in every way. Some might argue that it's a lot larger, but I have never had any problem putting it in pockets and that's with a case on it. :p

    I was in a similar position, except i had a 4th Gen 20Gb iPod that i loved and swore to myself that i would keep until at least 6th Gen iPod was released.

    The nano just drew in me with it's size and battery life. I absolutely love the battery life on this thing. It is so much better than my old iPod.

    I'm glad I'm not alone on this... I'll probably have one by summer's end

    Me too. A red 4GB (or the 8 GB if they ever do remain more than a second up on the refurb site).

    I cracked after a month, but thats because someone at my uni was offering a 2 day old black nano for £135 (the 4Gb sell for £129).

    I want a second nano...I have an 8GB Red one (sweet as hell, was a present)

    But I want another so I can go running (as part of Nike+) with it and not care if I scratch it, drop it, etc.

    check your local apple store, i got a refurb from them before they were posted online. which a month later said the battery was a dud and they gave me a brand new one

    Yea, i have a 5 gen ipod and i bought a nano... Mainly to keep in my backpack for school. I use my nano more then my video now.... I never really listen to all my songs so my nano is perfect and the battery lasts forever!

    I just switched up my 60gb video for a pink nano and a nike kit. Couldn't be happier.. I never watched video on my iPod and never listened to all the music I stored on it... so, the nano is actually quite perfect. I can run with it, the battery is amazing, the size makes it easy to carry around...

    For me, even 80Gb doesn't cover my entire library and I started going off larger HDD-based players, and I feel very self-conscious squinting at videos on a 2.5" screen. I now like to sync recent podcasts and stuff I've picked to listen for the next couple of days onto a flash player. And since I have my PSP with me most of the time I sync iPod-format videos to that, so if I HAVE to view videos like Podcasts I do it on the PSP.

    But to answer your question, it's because you're a typical case of a JRDF-addled Mac Addict :p
