there are no more HD based mp3s on the market anymore. I would have said the mini or the dell dj.

There are plenty of HD players, what an ignorant post. I recommend the Zen Micro- it fits your requirements, is small and pocketable, excellent sound quality, great battery life, and comes in 5 or 6 GB sizes. Its MicroHDD based.

You can now get this one for about 200 at some stores (best buy had a special recently). It has 20 gb, looks nice and has excellent sound. Also has an a recorder and fm radio. Stock earbuds are poor but that seems to be the case with all players.

Good luck.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
