If all you need is a good, portable music player I can't think of a better choice than the new Nano. It really is tiny, yet easy to navigate and with a generous 16GB of memory. I love its design and the touch screen is a great idea, making it (at least in terms of usability) something like a tiny version of an Ipod Touch. The lightness is what really impresses me: after hauling round my Ipad (!) as my main music player, it's a revelation. Gamers and those who need internet will need to choose something else, but for music it's absolutely splendid.
