I haven't actually used either, but what I've heard is that the IPod is the best mp3 player on the market. I've got an ipod mini shipping any day now, so I'll let you know how it is when I get it.

The iPod is better though the Dell is cheaper and does, on average, have a longer battery life.

I say choose whichever your wallet finds more appealing. If you can spend the cost to get an iPod, go for it. If it would be a stretch to get the ipod, dont.
