Heylo all, I am finally venturing into the world of portable mp3 music come my 17th birthday next Saturday. But I do not know which Mp3 to wish for. Which is the best in your opinion and why? What do you have? What do you like about or dislike about it? My friends all have iPods and live and die by the iPod. But I also know a couple people who had iPods and swore off of them because they were cheap quality and too expensive. I think I agree, knowing that they only last 500 battery charges....Any iPods users agree/disagree? I also have a buddy with an HP digital Jukebox or whatever and swears it's the greatest thing since the condom, but everyone else who has an iPod says it's cheap crap for no reason. So any input is greatly appreciated.
