So, I've recently got back into skating again and I used to have a shit little mp3 player but alas i dont anymore. Although Im not really really bothered i dont have any music I do like to listen to some tunes to get me more pumped (and all that shit). Anyways, im assuming quite a lot of you have mp3 players of some sort. I only want one with a small capacity (ie 512/1gb) cos its sole purpose will be when i skate and go running/tennis/whatever.

So the obvious choice was to go on ebay, i could probably get a shuffle for 25-30 if im lucky but ive heard (from many people) that these are prone to one problem: sweat. As in it actually ruins htem which, well shouldnt be too much of a deal but im still going to consider it anyway (since the main problem would be durability).
So was wondering if people who have one could tell me if they are any good or another mp3 i should consider instead. :)

oh and im a student, so money IS a problem. Nothing too expensive (and by too expensive, i mean it cant be more than 30 with p&p/vat/whatever else they add on)

$60 canadian or american I presume, so it would be 31 pounds.

i just got a new ipod nano, the new kind. its pretty good, and if you want 1gb, its only 109 US, so it shouldnt be too much for you. i got a 4gb for 200 dollars though.

Get one of those non-branded mp3 players off ebay. Like, usually the Asian courntries make them to make a good profit, its usually small capacity, the buy it now price is about mabey $40.00.
