I got a bonus at work, and I'm tempted to buy a new iPod.

    Timberoo saidI have a 4 gig g2 Nano, and it's always maxed out. I'm thinking about getting and 80 gig classic to replace it.

    Plus, the 80 gb is a regular old hard drive, meaning that when the disk is running (changing songs, showing video, etc) you have a chance of ruining it by simply moving with it. That's the biggest draw back with iPods...I've gone through about 10 of them because of that problem (warranty covered them). I would recommend a solid-state high capacity hard drive. Meaning something like a Creative player with a 32gb hard drive...it has no moving parts in it therefore, not the possibility of that problem happening.

    In2LectualBlkMan saidOr maybe you could save that bonus for a rainy day? Just a thought. Too many people like to burn through money as soon as they get it instead of thinking about down the line from now. Yeah, you might have to change the music on your iPod a bit more than you'd like...but if you get in the habit of saving instead of spending...you'll be able to get much more than a funky ass iPod in the future. Lol.

    I applied half to outstanding debt.
