I have to throw my hat into the 80GB ring. I require lots of space on my iPod in case I ever get the whim to put everything I own onto it.

I have the iPod shuffle and the 30 gb video. I use the shuffle only when I go to the gym and I have to say the sound quality in it isn't very good. There's no comparison between the video and shuffle. If you demand audio quality I would suggest to get the video.

I love the little clip shuffle..

I love that the songs come in any way they want


but if you have all your songs in 320 kbps, the 1 GB of the shuffle might be too short for all the music you might have

I have like 170 songs... you can't put all your library, but they're the songs that have me grabed right now

it's still MUCH cuter than a real iPod, easiest to travel with, you just clip it somewhere, press PLAY and go



I don't get the "i don't like shuffling"... I find boring to know what's coming next when I listen to music... you can always no-shuffle on the shuffle, still

It's just a personal preference. I've always been like that. I don't usually listen to music while doing other things. When I'm listening to music, I'm listening to music. Don't really know how to explain it. My eyes are shut and my heart races. I pick a song based on a mood I have or a mood I want to have. Often I switch to another song before one is finished. I like to choose what I'm listening to. If I'm just listening to music while doing chores or messing around on the computer, shuffling is fine, but then I play music off the computer so I don't need a special iPod for it.

Go for as much memory as you can. I agree that the price of the Nano is too close to the big iPods to accept the small amount of memory. My wife has a nano so she can run with it (the big ones have a hard drive and don't handle running well), but that's the only huge benefit I see for the nano.

Even if you can't fit all of your music onto an 80gb iPod, you can probably fit most of what you really listen to on there, making it phenomenal for long trips, etc.

There is a possibility.

I'd wait until November or December to make a decision.

I have a 30 gig black iPod and it's more than adequate for me:

20 gigs of music (3900 songs)
6 gigs of movies (about 7 movies and other assorted videos)

If you want a real compromise, go for the 30 gig.
