iPod Shuffle vs Sandisk MP3 – part 3

So which one do you think is the better deal? For $16 less I am getting a FM Player, Built in display, Built-in Equilizer, Voice Recorder and free arm band! Yes you have to add batteries to this unit, 1 AAA but remember what Apple says the rechargable batteries will eventually die. Overall the Sandisk will stay in my wife’s hand and my new iPod Shuffle will be placed on Ebay. Sorry Apple . . .

Quote Readers note: I am a big Apple supporter, but I am extremely disappointed with the iPOD Shuffle. All of the die hard fans who read this don’t be too bothered thinking this is a Windows guy who hates macs, yesterday I purchased a new Mac Mini from the online Apple store.
