What's the best of the rest?I'm looking for one right now for my son who did excellent in school this year. He wants an iPod mini, but I HATE Apple. He dead set on the iPOD and I can't talk him out of it. Anyway, I was looking at a few other options. If you're interested, I'll PM you on what I find out.

Incidentally, I spoke to a friend who's uncle bought him an iPOD mini for $137.00. That's a darn good price, but those F**KERS at Apple went up again to $199.00. :fiery: Did I mention that I HATE Apple. :lol:

Why Apple has such attention to detail and their products are the highest quality..

I don't think you will find a high quality 30 GB mp3 player for $200 hehe.. I think Zen's are more expensive than iPod's anyway.

Yeah I mean like $200 and something. ;) I saw a couple for like $260-270...I think they were less because they were heavy which I prefer as I'll drop or lose something too light. ;)

Well flash memory is what is used in USB thumb drives and things like that.. It doesnt have any moving parts as such.

Hard drive players actually use a mini hard drive which spins, you can get much greater storage in hard drive players.

xr6turbo, touched on one of my main reasons for disliking Apple. I've always felt that they put out less than quality products, among many other things. The products look attractive as hell. I just have a problem with what's under the hood. :shrug: But my son performed so dang well academically that I'll probably end up getting it for him tomorrow. :)

I'm trying to talk him into that Sony PSP system. :)
Should I stop doing that and just get him the iPOD?

Anyway, so far I like this:

I'll agree partly with that.. 7-8 years ago apple stuff was pretty shitty, but these days, their products are excellent and the customter service is top notch.

Don't be so hasty to write them off ;)
