So, i'm pretty sure my iPod is done... I've had it for almost 3 years, and it's battery life is shit. A couple of nights ago, it got pretty cold (around 40 degrees F), and it started freaking out, saying it had no battery, then half battery, then none again. Now it just shows a picture of an iPod with a frowny face. I was thinking of upgrading anyway this spring, so I might as well get something new soon. It comes down to:

iPod touch, 16 gb, $299- I really like the browser and all of the other features, and it's an iPod so I won't have to reformat my music. It doesn't have a lot of memory, though (I have about 10gb of music right now, and i'll probably have lots of videos), and it costs more.

iPod classic, 120 gb, $249- it's basically what I have now, except it has more memory and can play videos, plus it's cheap compared to the touch

Zune, 80gb, $224- my friend had a zune, and it was pretty cool. It has most of the features I want, except I would have to reformat all of my music. I'm kind of sick of apple right now so this might be a good choice.

So, what does the almighty pit think? I know there are a million threads like this, but I just wanted some input on my own situation...

same problem here dude, i had a 30gb video ipod. 2 years it lasted till i broke it last week, battery was sooo low,would need charging daily, and the headphone socket was fudged, could only hear through ear phone.
I myself am thinking of getting a ipod touch 32gb, the huge screen plus the wifi broswing gets my attention, but dunno i might wait a while till they bring a better model out or something.

I had a Sony Walkman, it was great, battery lasted forever and it was easy to use. Looked cool also.
I just need about $3.50

Get a sony ericson walkman phone. they're perfect for me. plus you can upgrade the memory just by buying a bigger stick. i think they take mp3 and iPod format type musics.
#13
iPod classic. That's what I'm getting for my next mp3 player.

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

You can't go wrong with the touch. You can get craploads of fun + useful applications on it for free, plus it works smoother + is easier to navigate than any other MP3 ever.

They just brought out a better model, it includes built in speakers

I think i'm gonna go with the classic or zune... I don't need a whole lot of capacity, so that fact that the classic has more memory isn't a big deal. I just need to know if there are any problems with zunes, and whether it would be worth my time to reformat all of my music.

Don't Get A Zune!!!!!!!!!!

Due to all the information that you provided that explains your opinion on why a zune should not be purchased, I will assume you cannot provide the said information.
Thus, there is no reason you shouldn't buy a Zune.
Zunes are awesome.
