It seems so early to be talking about christmas presents, but here goes ... Our daughter is wanting an iPod for christmas; originally I was torn between the 2g nano and trying to get hold of a 4gig mini. What has thrown me into uncertainty is seeing that you can now get the NW-HD3 for around £130 - less money, but 5 or 10 times the space. I've used Sonic Stage before (I have a Sony NetMD player), so that isn't an issue. Any comments or suggestions as to which one? I figure the Sony is possibly the more practical product - a lot more space, better battery life, and for me at least, it looks better (convincing my daughter may be another matter though!).
