hmm..im like the thin factor, which was the main reason i strayed away from the regular ipod back, maybe a year ago...and bought my mini

in saying that, i am sort of leaning toward the 30 gig video and spending the extra 50 for a bigger screen, hard drive, and video capabilities

It's all preference. I'm a filmmaker, and an insane movie geek, so obviously for me, the iPod video features are a godsend. Especially the video-out feature - now I can carry my work around with me to show potential clients, and if they have a big TV, I can just plug it in directly. No more PowerBook + external hard drive to carry around.

Plus I travel a lot. It would be sweet to watch some movies on the plane or the train, again, without having to lug around the PowerBook, extra batteries, and like 14 DVD's... and the small form factor means I could use it in places where lugging a DVD player might be really inconvenient. (Bus, waiting room, etc.)

That's the same reason I want it. Now I can carry around my work. I also love the fact that for stills you can upload direct from your camera. I aserisouly carry around my digital all the time, and keep my Canon camcorder in the car. It's crazy. I totally get what your saying though.

You can just download iTunes and then buy the episodes. No iPod needed.
