Looking at getting the girlfriend an IPOD for her birthday. Circuit City has them on their website for $269.00 for the 10 gb version. Anyone know of a better place to buy one?

Or if the IPOD sucks then what's the better MP3 player?

$269 is a good price for a brand new 10gb ipod. I got mine off the apple.com website with student discount for $269. apple has free shipping too. apple also has refurbs for good prices too....but i don't know what generation those are. they might not be the touch controls. another alternative is the dell mp3 player. i saw one in person the other day and it isn't that bad. i think it was somewhere around $249 or less at dell.com.

The best GB/$ ratio is the Creative Nomad Zen.
I am looking for something she'll be happy with and the IPOD seems to get the best reviews. Size of the drive isn't as important as the other features. 10GB is a lot of songs.

I got ali a RIO with 350 megs. Roughly 6 cds. More then we need and we dont have to worry about the battery issue ipods have. Plus the rio is the smallest I could find good for working out and running. It is extremely light.

Stay away from Sony MP3 players until Sony updates the firmware. Currently all Sony products require you to recode all of your media files into proprietary ATTRAC format.
This should be changing pretty soon though...

I got Janet an iPod Mini for her birthday. It's pretty nice but I think I like my Creative Nomad Zen better. The sound quality of the Nomad is much better...

But for a girl, the iPod is pretty nice I guess.

$269 is normal price go ahead and get it since you can't wait. Apple has deals from time to time where you can get the next highest model for the lower price. I have the model you are talking about and its great I say buy it.
