    Im sure this has been debated few times here before, but I was looking at both the Zune and Ipod Touch... Ive never owned either Ipod or Zune, but it seems like the Zune is better quality with more space / Touch having more features? I like that the Touch has the internet, and a few other options.

    I came in here to ask GG's opinion..

    Should i purchase 80gig Zune or 16 gig Ipod Touch?

    Yes, all of your downloaded stuff will play fine on either one.

    I just bought a Zune 2 and love it. The new Zune Pad controls are awesome and 100x better than the Gen 1.

    since you have a lot of music and videos you should go with the zune, the itouch is really cool but the space is very limited, and you can upload all the stuff you have in you computer, not only the music and videos you buy

    I'm looking to buy either a Zune 80GB or an iPod classic 80GB, but still not sure what to get. I only have around 6.5GB of music and not many videos. I have an iAudio X5 now, which doesn't use ID3 tags, so I organize my music in my 'My Music' folder based on Artist(folder)>Album(folder)>Songs.

    I downloaded both the Zune software and iTunes, and imported my music library to both programs. iTunes runs like ass on my PC, but the Zune software fine. I realized that I needed to do a lot of work with my music, meaning I need to add artist names, album covers, etc etc.

    Which would be more user-friendly for me?

    I have a gen 1 Zune 80 Gig I believe. I have never had any problems with it. Easy to use and simple. I love it for what it does. The screens much bigger then the regular Ipod's and it just seems to work better. The touch seems nice, never really got to play with a bought one but other then that if you have a lot of movies/music like more than 32 gigs worth even if you want to add more, Zune FTW

    So far using the Zune software has been a pain in the ass. While it looks nice...trying to rename genres and albums has not been easy, since I have to do it one at a time. Is there no way to edit a bunch of songs at once?

    Also, when I change the information of a song, it's not changed in my 'My Music' folder. For example, I have never labeled genres for most of my music. I began to with the Zune software, then when back into my 'My Music' folder, went to rightclick>properties on a song I knew I had changed..and the new information was not there. What's up with that?

    In regards to iTunes, it still runs like hell with my library (which isn't that big, 6.5gb). I have an AMD XP 2800 and 1gig of RAM. I've heard of others having issues with iTunes 7 anyway.
