    I've really been eyeing down mp3 players and I've narrowed it down to the iPod or the RioRiot. Does anyone have either of these?
    I don't have a Mac but apple.com/ipod says you can use it with a PC.
    The only thing leading me towards the ipod is it's sleek design, the rio riot is big, bulky and ugly. But I still have no idea what's better.

    Anhy help is appreciated...

    I say go for the 5GB Ipod... Unless your really hardcore your not going to need more than 5GB.

    I was thinking of getting the 5GB iPod but then I was like, "Well, I'll have this for awhile and I'll be getting a lot more cds and such...I think I'll go for the 10gb..."

    go with the 10 gig ipod. 5 seems like alot, but its not shit. i have about 12 gigs of mp3's on my laptop, and thats even being selective about what i keep on it. i suppose technicly i wouldnt have to dump my whole hd onto the ipod, but like.. what fun is that?
    plus, the thing doubles as a external hard drive, so you can store whatever you want on it...

    you can get a 10 off of ebay for around 3, 350
