I’m not now the proud owner of an Ipod Nano, 8gb version, black. It cost $249, which is something on the order of $100 cheaper then the full size 80gb full size video Ipod.

Jenn thinks I’m silly to spend 2/3 the price for 1/10 the storage, but I thought size was the winning factor here, as evidenced by the image.

New Ipod Nano with Old Ipod

I’ve been putting off this purchase for a long time because, let’s all face it, $250 is a lot of money for a glorified Walkman. But, I received a $150 windfall from my employer due to this being my third anniversary so, what the hell.

Size was my most important factor because I’m going to use this machine extensively while running, plus I like to carry things around in my pockets that aren’t the size of a small brick.

Yay me. I’ve joined the mp3 generation.

    nice choice. i have the 4GB black nano myself. at the time it was the largest storage for the nanos. i too like the portability and since it utilizes flash drives there are no moving parts (at least i think there aren’t any). used in conjunction with a good smart playlist on iTunes you can recycle songs every time you sync up. i have one playlist setup for random favorites limited to 3.8 GB not played in the last 2 months to sync up each time i connect my iPod to my iMac

    The capability you’re describing (the random favorites et al) are interesting. I’m discovering that Itunes is *not* user friendly. I can’t get it do do what I want. It took me twenty minutes a call of “Jennnnn!!!” to figure out how to get music onto the damn thing. [sigh]

    That’s the same beasty I have that replaced my dead 40GB Gen 4 iPod. It took some getting my thumb used to the smaller device (after using the larger iPod for 18 months).

    Don’t let iTunes kick your butt! Of course, I still haven’t reloaded most of my music library (I made a really dumb mistake while trying to deal with the dying 40GB and wiped 99% of my library off my hard drive), so I haven’t gotten to the point of only putting a fraction of the library on the iPod.
