What do you guys think?
I'm considering buying the first piece of Apple hardware in my life. It seriously sounds like a great deal. $99 for a 512 mp3 player is outstanding. I never look at the screen on my cruddy 64meg iRiver anyway, so I figure why pay for it?
that thing is nice (it's freakin tiny!) but...i don't think i could get over the lack of it telling you what song it's on. now, if it was 40gb then i could fit all my music on there, then shuffle wouldnt be so bad. but it's only a few hundred songs, not enough to create a distinct shuffle for me.
if you only have <512mb music or can easily pick out that much as your favorite, then go for it. it's a deal.
i hope they plan to release an lcd remote for this thing cuz otherwise im not gonna consider getting it at all. my 4gig Muvo2 is pretty much my favourite portable device rite now. If apple released a device like it so that i can use it as a mass storage device thats plug and play as well as a big mp3 player that has longer battery life than an (mini) ipod and yet cheaper, then i mite bite.
