The Touch isn't for you. It's too pricey. I have the Touch and I had no problem paying $300 for the 8GB - mainly because I wanted the iPhone without the phone - with the larger screen because I do like to watch videos. I rarely use the browser. I prefer my laptop and am looking into getting a basic ultra portable. I don't have the patience using the onscreen keyboard.
If it's Zune v. Nano, I think it's a toss up. If you really think the Nano is ugly, then maybe go for the Zune. I think the Nano is cute, but I don't like the colors. I really like the colors for the Zune 4/8GB. Too bad the 80GB is only in black.
I'm having a really hard time deciding - i've read every single review of anything I could scour on google.
So to put things into perspective - I'm perfectly fine with having about 8gb of space for music - possibly might hit 10gb of music in the next 2 years or so but not a big deal. I don't plan on watching videos on my mp3 player - if so very rarely.
ipod touch - not sure if the 16gb is worth $370 or w/e amazon has it on sale for, thinking about getting the 8gb but not sure if thats enough space for the 3rd party apps I want to add. the only other thing i'm concerned about is battery life - I think its around 12-18hours for mp3s and less with wifi usage. I would use it for email (hacked), some youtube, and mp3s/little bit of web use here and there.
zune 8gb - don't care about the screen size really since i won't be watching videos. better battery life than the touch - and fm radio (a slight plus for me, headphones -psh have my own "premium 'phones".) cheap compared to touch.
nano 8gb - ugly figure though thinner than the zune. cheap compared to touch. supposedly "better" in terms of size, battery life (than the zune).
so its basically the touch - or zune vs nano
I don't know if I can justify getting the touch for the web usage I'm doing. Its really bugging me - any thoughts or comments please =)
p.s. i don't care about cover flow
