Ipod minis?

    So they have been completely wiped out and replaced by the Ipod Nano? Didn't the mini just come out like last year?

    Also a Mini can be 6 gigs, but the highest Nano is 4 gigs?


    I want to buy my sister an Ipod for a present but I wanted to get her a mini because the colour looks cool and the nano just looks boring.

    What should I do?

    Can you even buy Minis in the store? or just ebay?

    What is going on here?

    naw, a bit earlier. But either way, welcome to progress. No reason to have the mini around with the nano on the shelves. As to the 6G situation, give it about three-five months and the six (or something larger) will be available.

    If you feel sorry for the iPod Mini, that is because you are CRAZY. It is just an mp3 player, it has no feelings. And besides, the Nano is much better.

    Why is it better? It doesn't look as good.

    Looks aren't everything. The Nano uses Flash drives, which have no moving parts, so it's much tougher than the Mini, which does have moving parts. You can drop the Nano, sit on it, even run over it with a car and it'll still keep on ticking. Also, it is much smaller than even the Mini and can fit in your wallet.

    Hmmm my plan is to buy either an ipod or ipod mini this winter. I want to have it for days of snowboarding. I just need to figure out which one would be a better investment. Is it even worthwhile to buy a regular ipod these days? I guess the benefit of a reg ipod is more storage?

    Buy her a pink one! That's what I got about a month ago and I love it.

    You can buy them at Future Shop and such, but the prices were better on Ebay and that's where I bought mine.

    Apple has discontinued the Mini now that the Nano is available. Once inventory is cleared out it's gone gone gone. There are still a few in stores now, mostly 6GB.
