    So after dwelling on it long and hard, i decided I need to buy an I-POD mini but considering the hefty price tag, I need to know the specifics of what i need to look for when buying one so i can get the most for my money.

    I am under the impression that not all I-POD minis are created equal with all this crazy talk of "next generation" and gigabytes and tech jargon out the ass i keep hearing from sellers on the net, etc....

    clue me in....thanks

    I too am considering an I-Pod mini..

    Do you have to pay for the songs from I-Tunes, or can you just load up any MP3s you have on your computer (from Limewire, etc.) ?

    Also, what's the word on I-Pod shuffles?

    if you just buy a different brand of mp3 player, youll save considerable money and get more features. like ten times as much battery time and a better size with the same memory for like 20 bucks less.

    i watched a tv review on all the brands.

    basically, for the price of a regular i pod or whatever. ..you can get one with more memory that has a color screen you upload flicks for a sideshow on. better battery life and prolly like twenty bones less.

    Ipod mini's are nice, but if you've got a shit load of music on file..you won't be able to upload more than 2 gigs. I'm sitting on 10 gigs of music now.

    Itunes is 99 cents per song or about 12$ per album. You can upload mp3s into the ipod with ease. You can also unlock you ipod and share your music with another person that has music on their computer

    I guess I'm a pirate at heart

    If you're gonna get an Ipod, might as well spend the extra dough and go with a 20 Gig. The mini is a kind of a rip off.

    A friend of mine has a 30 or 40 GB iRiver, and he can record live music using a microphone, and it sounds just like a mini disk recording (which is pretty damn excellent) without the hassle of minidiscs.

    If I could go back in time, I would have gone with an iRiver because of that recording feature. The iPod has one but it's for lectures/voice recording. Anything loud gets all distorted like you were using a tape recorder, at least that's what I've heard. But I can't complain about the iPod, except I would love to compare battery life between the two.

    If MiniDisk technology didnt rely on that stupid ATRAC3 compression and sony's wack ass sonicstage program, then it would be perfecto!
