    Which mp3 player should i buy; an Apple iPod or a Creative Jukebox Nomad Zen Touch or a Creative Jukebox Nomad Zen Xtra?

    I'm trying to decide and at first i really like the Zen Touch, but after reading some review i've read that there are some slight problems(it freezes, the touch pad is hard to handle...), then i moved on to the zen xtra, and i like that one a lot. But is it worth it to spend a little more money and get and iPod?

    I've never really been a fan of the iPod for the fact that it's so expensive and there are other cheaper alternatives. But now I'm starting to think maybe since i'm gonna spend that much money anyway i should spend a little more on an iPod knowing that i will like it and it will work.

    Please help!!!
    Thank You!!!

    Yea i've looked at the dell but didn't quite know what features it had. But now I do, and i like it. I think I'm probably going to buy it. I just want to see what other people have to say first, and also wait to see if my some strange chance the ipod is on sale next week at best buy or some place.

    Thank You!

    I wouldnt go with an Ipod if you gave me one.

    Why do you think people are giving them away for free ? cause nobody wants them :p

    I would go for the Creative Jukebox Nomad Zen Xtra, its a nice player.

    And unless you're a hardcore 24/7 music listener, it has way too many GBs for you to carry around =P

    Creative Zen all the way. Trouble is, i think colours are more limited at the moment for the zen, so if that bothers you, ipod. But the Zen does much more than the ipod, lasts 50% longer per charge, allows a second battery plus costs less than the ipod. My brother will be getting one soon because its so much better than the ipod.

    I think you have to buy an extra battery for it but you can do that unlike an ipod. I've seen Zen Micros around for about £165 in the UK, not sure about US.
