I doubt they'll make an update too soon..they're having enough craziness with the minis. However it is entirely possible.

When it comes to the Dell player...well...it's made by Dell. Now that isn't entirely bad...but hey...Dell is no Sony when it comes to PCs....on top of that....nobody has the batterylife that is given on a site, or in an article...read the small print...that's 20 hrs if this that and the other.....now the iPod could have longer blife, and that would be nice..but honestly it hasn't been a problem for me...I've only ran my battery down once, and that was on purpose....

If you go to the iPodlaunge, you'll see some battery tests...if you do things right...or real specific with the iPod..you can get the full 8-10 hrs...if not, it will be less, but there are ways around it. The iPod has more accesories than any other portable mp3 player...batterylife becomes not a problem...plus, if you're around a mac, just plug it in, and vualla, you're being charged...I think this works for a pc as well....not sure..never tried it...even though I have a pc....

there are car adapters for those long trips...play music til' you're running low, give it a bit of a charge...there also an extra battery pac you can buy....and you can put normal batteries in the iPod..which isn't nearly as cool but works....and there is also a guy that shows you how to make a homemade external bettery pack with a little bit of cicuitry work (not on the iPod itself)....and a deck of cards...can't remember the site, but I'll try and find it..or you could google it..

last but not least...the iPod works great, looks great, feels great, sounds great...and does all these things better than the others out there....from what I've heard, the other players all feel less sturdy, are bigger, and not are just not as fun to use....the iPods scroll wheel is really sweet...

but in the end it's up to you. i made my choice....
