if i were you, i would get the Creative Zen Micro... it's a LOT smaller than the iPod mini, and it is 5GB, and it costs 179 dollars. It also has FM tuner on it, pretty good, my cousin has one, and it' sOOO KOOOOOOL... all buttons are touch pads, and has a cool scroll thing.... and it comes with 2 batteries... nothing beats it

I think Creative makes a better overall product. Also, accessories and battery replacements are WAY cheaper thank Ipod's, plus the FM Tuner is a really nice feature.
One other thing, Ipod Mini comes with only a cable and Audio software, that's it. Creative's Zen Micro comes with the usb cable, armband, and a wall charger. Those two accessories will run you $60 from Apple, but they're included with the Zen.

yah get the zen micro. i have one, it's awesome. much better sound quality and the equalizer isn't crippled as it is on the ipod. it's also as easy to use as an ipod. it has an fm radio and replaceable battery in addition to all that.

Obviously, you guys don't know about the headphone jack problem creative has. It gets loose. It gets loose on the dell djs too because creative makes the dell djs for dell. Also, it has a shorter battery ife. 9 claimed hours, probably shorter than that.
