Default ipod or zune?

should i get this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16855604016
or this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16855101077
the reason i need this is my nano is only 4 gigs i expanded my music libary to 10 gigs. i want one that plays videos cause my nano cannot. the touch does have the internet they both have internet but the touch has a cool touch screen. i have been thinking about this for a while and made these 2 my final choice.
i leave the rest up to you to tell me witch one to get.

yes i still have more cd's to rip. i just relized that the zune will not need itunes but the ipod does i think that is worth it right there. i think because they play vidieos i will use the extra space in the end.

What neodude said. iTunes is awful. The Zune software is very nice. I bought a 5G and I'm sad I did, my brother's old Zune was $90 and blows my iPod away in every respect. The touch is nice but I think it's a slight ripoff.

Either way you go, make sure to get a nice set of noise-canceling headphones. iPod headphones give a whole new meaning to the word suck. Zune headphones are a little better, but just do it anyway, it's heavenly.

I'm not basing an mp3 player on the software I'm just covering all the ground here.
It's terrible to use, a slow resource hog, and it makes my speakers clip. I wish I could keep track of all the music elsewhere to update the iPod because I hate having to use it. I think that's a fair judgment and worth mentioning.

I also don't like the stock EQ on the iPod. Seems like they spent 2 seconds setting it up. At least you can tweak it.
