Re: MP3 player?

If you're going to spend $200+, why not get a nice game machine as well?

A friend of mine loves his Linux-based GamePark GP2X ($170); throw in $50 for a 1-GB SD card, and you have a nice little MP3/Ogg/whatever-anyone's-ever-written-a-player-in-Linux-for player that you can also play lots of classic arcade games on.

The screen's 320x240 pixels, 3.5" diagonal, so I don't foresee watching feature-length movies on it, but for Red Dwarf or RocketBoom it'd be fine.

And, of course, it runs on AA batteries, so you wouldn't be adding yet another charger to your life.
