Pros Before, the mini's main con was that it only had a 4gig hd AND its 8 hr battery was terrible. NOW... the 18 hr battery is better than almost EVERY other hd mp3 player, and the mini retains the same form and function, but now has the largest HD of any mic
Cons Doesn't come w/ Firewire cable, which i would need. But i'd drop an extra $20 to get that for this thing. Its a perfect MP3 player. It does what its meant to do (play music) for longer than any other player. Cons : NONE
Pros I hesitated to buy into the Apple hype for a very long time. Although I already had a Creative Zen Extra 30Gb player, I bought a mini for portability since I travel quite a bit. After trading up from the 4Gb to 6Gb version (+$25 restocking fee to return m
Cons Why did Apple get cheap and not include a AC charger? You must now buy it seperately or charge through your computer's USB 2.0 port. This blows!
Pros Holds a lot of songs
Cons These are supposed to hold up to 18 hours of battery life. Mine gave out after 3 hours!
Summary DO NOT BUY! The lack of a backlight is enough to say this is an awful product. The click wheel isn't sensative enough, and the battery life is almost non-existent. I had to send mine back to Apple for a refund.
Pros Durable, Easy to use, Compatability
Cons Battery Life
Summary I bought the iPod Mini with my iBook and I have to say I have been very pleased. Even when the new Nano came out, at first I thought I'd enjoy a color screen and smaller iPod, I soon realized what makes the Mini so much better. Durability! I've dropped it so many times and the thing keeps on trucking. My sister owns a Nano and she practically snapped it sitting on it. Mine has been though hell, and I am glad I own one.
Pros Large memory space, excellent iPod design, user-friendly
Cons No external speaker
