Mazzy Star on a Shuffle, iPod or iRiver?

Bought three Mazzy Star CDs, which I'm really enjoying. Not sure why I missed Mazzy Star the first time around. They seem to have released most of their good stuff when I was at Uni, during which time my music budget was nil and the indie discos I went to played more lively stuff. I haven't listened to enough music recently and really must get a decent mp3 player. I think the Shuffle would be best for me. Looks nice, not too pricey. I should get the cheaper knockoff from Taiwan that looks the same but has more features. Since I've got all my 3,000+ songs on my laptop, moving things around when travelling won't be a problem. Ideally I'd like at least a 20GB Shuffle, but I suppose that'll have to wait. iPod and iRiver devices just seem a little too pricey and a little too bulky, particularly after you add a carry case to protect them – yet another device to carry around, which I don't really want.
Comments:

I have an iPod mini, and I have to say the thing is remarkably solid. I've dropped it a couple of times and it didn't bother the thing at all. I don't think you really need a case unless you're manic about cosmetic scratches. My 4Gb mini is full now and I'm wanting a 40Gb iPod now; you probably won't be satisfied with a Shuffle. There's something addictive about carrying your tunes around.

Your probably right. I do like the idea of having absolutely everything there when I need it. A friend got the iPod Photo of Christmas, so he gets to carry around all his pics too, which is actually quite a fun thing to be able to do. Just need to save up that pocket money I suppose :)

Just carry your lunch for a bit... it'll add up. \*giggle\* Plus you can get a mini for two hundred clams these days, if you wanna start small!
