I already have the 30GB video...but the battery life sucks, it's more for letting my friends rip music they'd like...and I have a 2GB black nano 1g, and the battery life on that sucks too, and also I can only fit 500 songs (I'm a moody person!) and it's one of the first 1g's, so the screen is scratched BEYOND repair. Also, I got a new job where I'll spend 2+ hours traveling to and from work, so I was going to get the black 8GB nano - but now there's a red one. Money to a good cause FTW. Perfect for the gym, for travel (I'll be in Paris in January, so the 25hr batter life will help!) And it'll hold a nice playlist of music for me to tend to all my moods. The new shuffle looks pretty sweet, but the batter life will be dead before a half day, and 240 songs ain't much. Great for the gym, nothing else really. I think I'm looking for some median to replace my other two. Ill just throw them on ebay... I'm so excited! I'll pick it up this weekend or so.
