    I had a Memorex 1 gig MP3 player that I used for almost 2 years. Finally died on me on my way to the gym today. Sucks because this means a need to get a new one. Bright side, my b-day is this month. I'm wondering what is a good MP3 player to get? I'm trying to stay away from the iPods because although you can get apps for the iPod touch, I wouldn't use them. I'm also anti mac so no iPod suggestions please. What other MP3 players do people use out there that y'all would probably recommend?

    j/k umm the Zune is pretty popular.

    Basically I would go for anything that has a decent display, light, long battery life, high capacity storage with removable storage card.

    Yah was just looking at the Zune. Looks like it's can compete with the iPod toe to toe. Minus you can't use Pandora radio though. Although I couldn't use Pandora radio in the car anyways seeing that it has to use wifi.

    saying you're "anti mac" is fucking stupid. why would you be against great devices?

    Having owned a Zune, I'd steer clear of them. The software to manage your mp3s (yeah, you have to use software) is super clunky and the devices themselves are prone to failure (not just mine, lots of stores on the Zune support forums).

    Doesn't your cell phone play mp3s?

    Yes it does but you need a special adapter just to listen to the music. No headphone input. I'm actually thinking about upgrading my phone since I have the option with my phone provider for real cheap.

    I can say I'm anti mac because I think mac's products are over priced for what they do. It's a matter of opinion and it's my opinion. Just sayin.

    adapters are cheap and plentiful.

    as for Macs being "over priced for what they do", they aren't. If you price a similarly speced PC that has the same performance benchmarks it will cost the same or more (probably more) as the Mac counterpart.

    The "over priced for what they do" stigma that the computer ignorant try to bring up comes from there not being a entry level Mac device. They're ALL premium/high end devices. Yeah you can get a Dell laptop for $600 while the cheapest Apple laptop is $999, but that Apple laptop is WAAAAAAY superior to that $600 Dell, it's also superior to all the $1000 Dell laptops. You get what you pay for and while you do pay a lot for an Apple product, you get a lot for that money.

    Regardless, they are still over priced for my taste. The MP3 player I had cost me $10 and did everything I wanted it to do. At the time, iPod's were 3 - 4 times that (technically they still are). I bought a Dell laptop for $600 and it does everything I need it to do and I built my pc for $500 and I can still play the newest games coming out now. I'm a PC person and I'm sticking to it.

    I've been looking at the HTC Inspire phone as an upgrade to my now Xenon by LG. I know this topic is going from MP3 to phone device but doesn't mean I'm still not wondering.

    macs only have a 1 button mouse.

    if im paying that much.. i want a 2 button mouse. that in itself makes them suck.
