portable mp3 players?

I’m looking to get a portalble mp3 player in the near future. I’m tired of having to sit at my PC to listen to all my musical goodness. with summer approaching, i’ll be away from my PC more than i’ll be near it.

Anyone have a portable mp3 player? ipod (20g, mini, shuffle), creative, rio, etc.?

i’ve already done some research, but would like some first hand opinions… thanks.

I have the Creative 40 GB model. No complaints at all about it, really easy to use as far as loading songs and the options on the player itself.

i have a 20 gig ipod and i love it the only problem is the battery life and what not but you can always get extra accesories for it because there are millions of them it seems like
