  1. is the new ipod really that much better than the older one? besides the whole moving parts deal...what are some reasons to pay so much more for a new one? Is the sound quality any better?

    The old iPods have a firmware upgrade to use AAC just like the new ones. So the sound quality is the same. The only reason to buy a new one is if you want

    1.) larger size (15 or 30 GB)
    2.) smaller form factor
    3.) Inline remote (first gen iPods didn't have this)
    4.) Non-moving wheel

    I have a first-gen iPod and it still works great.

    If I had the money I would get a new one, just since they're cooler, but I would gladly take either if offered one for free, or at a super-low price, or to trade for my discman :)
