"buttons is actually a flexing surface that - at least conceivably - could break with repeated use. We like the concept, and greatly prefer it to a touch-sensitive pad that relies on laptop touchpad-style "tapping" for button inputs, but it's not a step towards greater durability in the iPod's design. If anything, it's a perfect feature for a more disposable iPod with lower lifespan expectations, and in truth, that's just what the $250 mini is, relative to its older $500 30GB and 40GB brethren. "

Disposables?!!
So they are not only cute, they are also the most expensive disposables I know off.
Incredible what people will pay for a pretty face....

I'm trying to decide what to buy.
I am a runner, and I want something to put my music on so that I can listen to it while running. The mini is hdd based, will that pose any problem?

Does it show the Album or does it not?

They could do a bit a screen optimisation on the iPod itself.
I'd rather getting rid of the useless things, namely from my 1G iPod:
"Now Playing"
"The elapsed time bar"
"The elapsed time text"

Keep: Title, Artist, Album
Add: Composer
Add as an option (scrolling?): Grouping.

I mean, since they added these fields in itunes, we should be able to see them in iPod (and browse them in *both* iPod and iTunes.

In my highschool (Denmark), half of the students have laptops, and when we are being given our, they tell us to recharge it for about 24 hours, so and stress the batteri and it will last longer. I'm quite sure the batteries in the ipod and in a laptop are the same. Dunno if this is any good, just passing on advice smile

Incorrect, laptop batteries and iPod batteries are completely different. Keeping it in the charger longer does nothing, as it stops charging once it hits 100%.

I got my iPod mini for two days now,using it active one day and guess what, I LOVE IT.I changed from my 1G iPod because the 3G iPods didn't seemed to have to much improvements compared to,but this mini is great.When i unpacked it from its box and take it out of it,i didn't want to take it off my hand LOL XD. Maybe its right the pricing isn't very great with 249$ or in Germany later 299Euro,but its worth it :D.I plugged it into my PB and it works.Everyone who is considdering buying an iPod,go into an Apple Store an get an iPod mini in your hand and believe me,you'll gone love it !

mikkel morgen mark you really are an idiot. You should go and read up on the way Li-on batteries work! Just because a Li-on battery is in an ipod doesn't mean its any different to the way a li-on battery works in a laptop!

Jesus, you really are an idiot. Ever heard of trickle charging?

Trickle Charging. HAHA. Sorry, some of us don't do hours and hours of research like you do. Maybe we don't have time to have ever heard of "trickle charging" Chris.

bah I'll stick with my 3G 20GB regular iPod...and "Thomas", I have that CD importing/playing problem also, use CDex, it's great.

Runner:
You should probably get a mini. I have a silver one (which I love), and it feels much better while working out than the regular iPod. Maybe some of it is psychological, but I don't think so.

Dennis:
If you only have 1gig of music, and don't expect to get a LOT more that you must always have with you, get a mini. It has 4 gig of storage--why spend more for a larger iPod?

The idea of the mini iPod
is to carry SOME music with you,
NOT your FULL collection.
Use the computer to carry
your whole cololection
and easily change the songs on the iPod.
