I've been thinking of getting a portable MP3 player for a while but I've never really looked into it too hard. After semi-browsing the market, I'm starting to lean towards a 5GB iPod. The interface seems really easy to use, it's not too large, plus it'll hold plenty of music. I really don't need a 10 or 20 gig, plus I'd rather not spend over $300 for one. Can anyone who owns/knows anything about these offer me some opinions? I use Windows but I've heard that getting the Mac and just buying some conversion software is better, is this true? Thanks in advance.
