theres ones with better battery life (which is the only thing that lowers the ipod.), but there all ugly as fuck. I love my ipod mini.

The new ipod minis have 18 hours of batter life 4GB= 200$<> 6GB=250$

IMO the Creative Zen touch is better than the iPod although its a little fatter. It has better battery life (24hrs) and doesnt force you to use thier software, which is one iPods greatest downfalls. I also like the Zen cuz it has a Random button, which comes in handy when you don't feel like looking for music. THe volume controls are on the side, so that's convenient as well. But i gotta say i like the iPod's design better, plus the touchpad of the Zen is too sensitive at first, really takes getting used to. If i were you i'd wait for the next Creative Zen, which i think is gonna drop around the beginning of summer, should be an iPod killer

i like this one

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=6998467&type=product&id=1099391751751

but kinda pricey...
for the same price you could get a 4GB ipod mini. Its got 3 more GB. 18 hour battery life. Plus it looks amazing.

but is it a separate button? Cuz if not, you still gotta go in the menu and click random. The good thing about the zen is that if you wanna change to a random track u just gotta press that button

if you've got an iPod for windows/pc, try using EphPod (www.ephpod.com) instead of iTunes, i found when i used it on my PC laptop it was HEAPS better than iTunes. Now that I use a Mac, i don't have much choice except to use iTunes.

I used to have an iPod but the batterys are :-X  :-X :-X

Now I got myself a $250 Creative Zen Xtra 30Gb which I'd take over an iPod any time. The performance is perfect imo. It might not be as flashy as the iPod but hey, everyone already has an iPod.

If you plan on going that small you might as well get Creative Zen Micro...lol

1. Removable/Rechargeable battery (12 hour battery life)

2. Cheaper 179.99 (4GB)

3. Looks better

Go with the Creative Zen Touch, I copped the 40 gig one for cheaper than a 20 GB ipod, and it has a better battery life and looks titer.  I had an ipod for like 2 weeks and it fucked up, so I wouldnt recommend one of those.
