Haha yeah...

As for MP3 player preference, I have a Creative player, but its Iaudio for me if a good enough player arrived, as the features themselves are hard to fault.

Well it really depends, because if you want great video and audio format support, the Zen Vision M does give you more bang for your buck. If you're looking for a great and simple interface etc, then the iPod could be just for you.
