    sorry if it's a duplicate and yes i can only answer the question but my main reason was because of Podcasts I like them.

    I have a Zen Vision: M but it crashes a lot.

    I am a total newbee with itunes and the like so any advice tips for a newbee would be great.

    ps I need a case/protector for it any good one about

    the latest one what ever number that is from the US site (no volume restrictions) main problem is podcasts that a very long (major nelson) usually crashes towards the end about an hour into the podcast.

    Arent you going to find the lack of disk space a problem?
    Dont get me wrong it looks sexy but not worth the money with so little space.
    I think the 80Gb iPod Classic is the best deal at 160 quid.

    I wouldnt fancy working in a shop when lots of people come in ranting after buying an old ipod last week lol

    That's strange, I've never had any kind of problems with podcasts personally.

    I to have ordered an iPod Touch (16GB). I also have a 5G 60GB iPod which will be relagated to "music only" when the Touch arrives so for me the 16GB is adequate (just). I was tempted to hang on for the iPhone, but my Wife says that when it arrives in the UK, she'll take the Touch off my hands (depending on the specification and price of the UK model)

    There are currently no cases for the iPod Touch as it is slighly smaller than the iPhone, although I suppose one of the silicon type cases would fit. I'd espect to see dedicated cases in a month or two.

    I'm having difficulty deciding between the sexier looking iPod Touch or the more video capable Archos 605 Wifi.

    There is a £20 off code for the Apple site floating around somewhere on Hot UK Deals and on here i think. And if you go through Quidco, that would give you another £6 something. :thumbsup:
