I have both of those. I just got the new Nano, so I haven't loaded it with music yet; I just played with the video camera and tried the FM radio.

They are totally different machines/appliances. If you want a pure music player the Nano is the obvious choice. If you want more functionality and options, the Touch is cool, but my battery life is at maybe 2 hours at this point, and it's only a year and a half old. The new Nanos feel really tiny, which could be bad, but I think it will be nice for the gym. Right now I bring my Classic 120GB to the gym, and it gets a little bulky.

The multi-functionality of the Touch is enticing, and I'll probably need the storage of the 32 GB the more I think about it, which rules out the Nano. If it comes down to storage space above price, I'd get the 160 GB Classic, but that seems a little excessive.

I am in need of the 64 GB iTouch, but I am waiting just a few more months for the updated version that is coming.

iPod Classic/nano/touch refreshes occur in September. Typically the following Tuesday (or one after that) after the back to school promotion ends.

I feel an iPod shuffle refresh may occur sooner; my guess would be at Apple's World Wide Developers Conference in June as a "One More Thing..." announcement.

I've got about a week left, judging by how much I use my iPod and how I can't charge the battery. Oh well.

ordered it and a 2 GB memory chip.

sounds like a good value

evevything I read about mine in the reviews has been true.

some said the keyboard flexes a bit.
it does

my touch pad is just a bit skiddish, sometimes,

every notebook I have ever had, the touch pads all respond differently

the keys are not back lit.



the battery life is still the best I have ever seen.

this costs $699. I got more than my monies worth

I like the casing, alot more than the macbooks.

I have taken it out to a couple of cafes, the vegetarians got their macbooks going with their little apple lights glowing, all branded up
and most of them looking to get plugged in.


I can sit there for 5-6 hours, no power, and drink coffee, go home and watch two hours on hulu tv in bed.

it's great to be me.

Yes, you could also have a gorgeous Macbook Pro with 8+ hours of battery life...

(I can vouch that it really is the case)

That's staggering. I can get about 3 hours on my MB Pro (the generation before the unibody models came out).

I absolutely love my iTouch, the only caveat being that I need a special adapter to be able to play it in my car, which has an iPod hook-up built-in. It's only $20, so I'd say it's a worthy investment.

i wish i could still get four hours battery out of my macbook, although i'm being greedy by keeping the screen at full bright etc etc when i'm not connected to the adapator.

I can usually get about 4-4.5 hours on my MacBook Pro (pre-unibody), though when I'm on battery I do turn the screen brightness down below halfway. It is a good idea to regularly let the battery get down to the single digits before plugging it in, as it helps the battery maintain it's charge better. If it gets used and rarely gets below 25% before being plugged in, eventually you're going to shorten the charge length of the battery.

I make a point to do the battery reset thing. Burn your battery down until the computer is forced into sleep, then plug it in and recharge to 100 percent. It works pretty well. I do it about once a month per battery.

I find WiFi to be the biggest battery drain. I try to remember to shut it off when I am just working with some documents or something.
