I highly recommend it. BTW, if your budget was bigger, she'd be happier. :)

Ehh, I'd go with the 2 GB one. It looks nice IMO, and it has a nice USB built in, not so stupid cord (like mine).

yepp, a small ipod would be cool but too expensive. Before I buy my girlfirend an ipod, I ll buy one for myself^^

btw: " ... After Rebate" - This whole rebate thing never worked for me even as I was living in New York. And now I am in Germany. Furthermore I won't buy it online ... her birthday is in 5 days

RUSH DELIVERY FTW!!!

It should get there in like 2 days.

Also, if you were looking into an iPod:

And if you're not into shuffle, this one caught my eye:

It's a tad more expensive, but I think it's worth it. =)

ok. A little German lesson for US guys:
- Adolf Hitler is dead since over 60 years
- in Germany we have schools, police and ah yes democracy
- and the best, cause we have free market economy we have shops
- Walmart is leaving Germany because their prices are to high, no one is buying there. German shops can offer a very much lower price
- and consumer electronics (yes u can buy mp3 players here) are cheap. Mostly cheaper than in America

example: lpxxfaintxx's scanDisk 1GB MP3 Player Sansa c140 => USA 69,99 $ => Germany 40,40 € = 50 $

Try places in HongKong, I got my Ipod there for $95 and it was the real thing, but they only gave me 1 usb cable though.

If you're talking about Hong Kong, China, you need to haggle, Asians love haggling.
