The pricing is pretty good too, with it coming in the same as a 4Gb Nano. I have heard good vibes about this player and although it is not iTunes friendly, the Mac should be able to see it as a removable device, so drag and drop of files would be possible. Plus you get a superb screen, movie and photo support, FM tuner with recording, voice recording, pouch, lanyard, need I go on...
No promises, but I hope to be able to get a unit and report back on its' click wheel, build, usability and other qualities soon.
