The Nomad Jukebox C-Series
Creative's Nomad Jukebox C-Series is quite tempting. The Jukebox recently had a price drop down from $499 to $299(!) and the C-Series (which elimintes some accessories) is priced at $269. Now that still isn't in "impulse" buy territory, but for a 6 GB MP3 player, it's getting there. I would like to have something with more room, but if you're willing to void your warranty, you can expand this sucker to 20 GB or 30 GB (IBM Travelstar drive is an extra of course).
