    Girlfriend graduated, and she really wants an MP3 player. She keeps all her pictures of her Godson, family, people like that with her, and she loves that fucking solitaire game.

    What device puts all those together, and what do you get? God damn iPod. Unless someone can suggest something else that does all that. Dont wanna spend more than 300.

    If I remember right, the 30 GB iPod color is more than $300.

    339 @ circiut city, plus I work there and with my shitty discount it will be about 300.

    So I shouldnt even factor in the solitaire, its that shitty?

    I was also looking at this one, but the screen is small.

    zen > iPod. I've bought one a couple times, and had to return it each time.

    Get an Archos Gmini! It has a color screen, video playback, photo viewer, supports more audio formats than ipod, and has way better games! It's about $230 on amazon.com. It's worth the extra 30 bucks.

    Check it out:

    I love my iPod, it was worth every penny.

    I talked my fiance into buying one.

    I bought one for my mother.

    I'm thinking about getting a new one for myself.

    iPod is, no contest, the best MP3 player out there. I was skeptical at the price at first, but after having one for over 2 years now, I am no longer.

    Incorrect. The X5 beats it in every aspect. This is based on facts, not opinion.

    Ipods are overrated. Ipods with color screens are even more so.

    Iv had the same problem, always over small things, you gotta explain to them, tho, when you pay $500 you dont want a fucking line of dead LED's down the screen.
