So I'm looking to get an MP3 player, and naturally, I'm clueless about good brands and whatnot. I don't need something like an Ipod that can hold more music than I even own, but I want something that can at least hold a few cd's of music at once; 1 GB would be the maximum of what I need, more likely 512MB would be fine. I don't wanna spend too much money on it either, like preferably under $100. I don't need any fancy extras likke a video screen or anything, just something that can hold a good amount of music and has good audio quality. So, any advice on a player that'd meet my needs?

Know someone who works at one of these stores? Maybe you can get a discount if they buy it for you. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....ryRep=cat03000 Got an ebay account? You can probably get a good deal on something from there if your willing to wait.  http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1099392727069 would be the best one at Bestbuy for under$100..however there are much better places to shop than Bestbuy. Also, I would suggest going with a CD/MP3 player instead. They can be had for about $50, and if you already have a CD-RW drive you can put songs on and off as well as play normal CDs (Yeah, I know, "whats a normal CD?") Otherwise, may want to try something like this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...769568283&rd=1 Of course its lower quality than usual, but for <$100 that's what you are asking for.

I know it's an Ipod but you may want to consider an Ipod Shuffle. It holds either a 512mb = $99 or a 1gb space =$149. http://www.apple.com/ipodshuffle/
 ..Like I said ;) Although I have to say I don't like the iPod shuffle personally. The vast majority of MP3 players out there have a shuffle mode...taking away the choice isn't exactly an upside.

But its totally Apple!

Actually i don't have that much against the iPod. Its a nifty little thing, though grossly unneccessary with 40Gb for the middle of the road one. But the people who own them bother me. Mac-people in general bother me. The whole,
 let's be unique and non mainstream by all having the exact same unique and non mainstream stuff
philosophy is assinine. And of course, I hate the RIAA and almost everything they sell, so i own very little music.

Thanks alot, Jacob Some time ago you bought a laptop. Now you want to buy a MP3 player. You must have the wallet filled with money, Waste. What happens here? Everybody seem to have money except me!  Recognitions: Science Advisor I bought a Creative Labs Nomad MuVo. It's basic model is 128 MB (about 30 songs) and runs on 1 AAA battery. They do have a larger size for more storage. It plugs right into a USB port. I like it because it's only a couple of ounces and I found it online for about$55. I'm sure there are better out there, but this is all I needed. I like it very much.
