Seriously, if you just want music (especially if you're active), it's hard to deny how appealing this one is.

I'm dumbfounded how small this device is. I was a huge fan of the first shuffle even though it was subsequently overlooked by the nano, and this is jus that much better. A robust, tiny, no-nonsense, CHEAP mp3 player.
