well, the iPod looks better...and the backlight looks a hell of a lot better...and the button system for the iPod is better...but I don't know...creative has good sound cards....I don't know about their players. plus it's not going to work as nicely with iTunes, or a music store...but it'll work over all I imagine..so really, it's up to you..I could say iPod all day, and it doesn't really matter does it?

I believe cnet.com has a lot of articles and reviews of mp3 players.. might want to go check what they have to say. If the creative is a high end one then they'll probably have a review and since the iPod has been the best in all reviews I have ever seen, then the review for the creative should say what is better than the ipod and what is not as good.

good luck!

Ok hopefully this url will work for you:

it's a small comparison and then you can read the reviews of each on that page also

Metal is nice, the iPod mini is irresistable I think, despite the 4 gig drive!

I would say the iPods look very sleek and professional. Girly isn't the right word by any means...at least not for most...but people do have their opinions.

btw, the iPod also has more supported sound file types. I am also assuming that they'll eventually give us a software update to allow wma to play on the ipod. who knows....I got one, so there won't be any buying of digital music players any time soon for me.

and the battery life....it always last what I need..or has so far...plus, I think the problem more than the battery itself, is the battery indicator...I don't know how acurate it is...so the battery last a lot longer than we think...I think....but it isn't good to completely run down any lithion ion battery too much...so i have avoided it most the time. I usually go 4-6 hrs listening to it off and on. Now if I were to lets say...listen to it straight w/o pushing buttons...I'd get much more out of it.
