If you need an MP3 player, here's some cheap quality options:
1 Creative Zen Nano Plus 1GB Dark Blue MP3 Player $20 Or Less After $30 MIR
2 SanDisk Sansa e200 (2 GB) Digital Media Player $39 without any rebate process needed
Damn, to think I paid like $65 for my Sandisk 256MB in Jan 05. This MP3 player market is still improving fast each year in terms of the functionality/price ratio.
