I've finally decided that I could really do with something like this, but with the iPod being C£300+ I'm wondering if there are any viable alternatives that could be cheaper? What would be the pro's and con's? It'd be really helpful. I've not really kept up with what's available etc recently and I've only just started my research into what's good/bad, prices I should expect and what I should expect to get from them. Any replies would be appreciated!
