80GB iPod touch. Smile

The Zune may have a better screen and hardware, but I still think the iPod classic still wins with its software integration (iTunes), GUI and clickwheel.

I would be in that camp. Smile

I really want an Apple hard drive based player with a 3.5" screen in the worst way.

Or step it up to a 4" tablet where the entire face is a screen and the home button on the top.

That might be a little big in your pocket. I think the 3.5" screen and overall size of the iPod touch is perfect. I saw one at Best Buy last weekend. Man they are incredibly thin and sexy. It just needs some more GD storage capacity for something in that price range. Mad

I hate to say this, but I think that I would rather have the 80GB Zune. Shocked

Beyond the iPod touch, I'm sort of bored with the current crop of iPods. A Clickwheel and small screen. Been there, done that. I'm not necessarily saying the Zune is any better. It's just something different.

I would get a Zune on condition I either install OS X or Linux on it...

Otherwise...it might come in handy as a meat tenderiser....

I would definitely be in the "neither" category.

but given the choice of Zune 80 or iPod Classic it would have to be the iPod.

NIETHER, I used to have an 80gb ipod. Thankfully my buddy @Apple told me the new ones were to be released in the beginning of Sept. I quickly sold it for almost as much as I paid for it. Now that I only have an iPhone, I can't fathom why I ever wanted/needed more space.I have 9 full lenght movies and a few thousand songs on my phone with 2gb space free to load apps.

I'll be getting an iPod touch just for the coolness factor and the size. I don't need that much space on my iPod, right now I've got a 20gb 4G iPod. I have a lot of music on my Mini, but it's not on my iPod since I am changing lists and songs on my iPod regularly. I'd like to get an iPhone but that will wait until it can be used with other providers.

Yeah, it's looking more and more like the iPod touch for me too. Especially with the reported slow GUI and disk-spinning bug iPod classic owners are reporting about. I've heard many people say the iPod classic is the worst iPod they have ever owned.
