iPod..or iPod mini
iPod mini..or iPod

It's such a hard choice.. I want a small iPod so that it's a little easier to keep in my pocket at school and for traveling etc....

But 20 gigs on the iPod is very attractive for a small price difference...

Any one got any suggestions and pros and cons..

I dont want the photo one though, i'll use it for music mostly..

go for the 20 gig, the ipod isnt that big and fits in my pocket easily, or you could buy a belt clip and keep it on you that way.

Have you personally had a look at the 2 iPods yet? The iPod really ain't that much bigger and heavier than the iPod mini and for a little bit extra, you are getting 5x more storage.

I think the ipod mini is too small, Id be afraid of losing it, plus none of the colors really appeal to me...

Go for 20GB. No harm having the extra capacity. You never know when you might need it when your collections start to increase. If you get a mini, you will crying for more capacity in future.

I went from a 3G 10gb to a mini, I haven't regretted my decision. I just don't have that much music so there is no reason I would want to carry around a bigger iPod.

Here's a tip for when you get your iPod. Don't touch it. Don't breathe on it. Don't even look at it, otherwise it will get covered in scratches.
