Default zen micro vs. zen touch

i realize this isn't exactly the right page for this, but i need responses really fast...

i orderd a 5gb zen micro yesterday for $235. just 10 min ago, i saw a zen touch with 20gb for $230 (both off amazon). can someone please tell me why a 5gb is more expensive than a 20gb? is there any advantage at all?? otherwise i'm going to cancel my order and order the zen touch.

Smaller size=more money. Also the micro is more stylish and newer.

so basically what you're saying is that the only reason the micro is the same price is because it is smaller? i thought that the larger hd would outweigh the smaller size. like the 20gb ipod is 299 and the 4gb ipod mini is 249.

Well, basically the micro is new, and it can play the radio, and it's a touch pad. I ordered one myself

more technology/options = more money

edit -----------------------------------

wow, i was wrong. i compared the wrong players. i thought you said it was zen xtra. so to conclude, MICRO is more FLASHY and SMALLER.
