Their newest MP3 player is the iPod shuffle. It is a flash media player that connects through a USB port and the 1GB model can hold up to 240 songs, perfect for those trips to the gym. There is no screen to view the current song or playlists on the shuffle, so you will need to upload a playlist that you want to listen to and know its order (if you want to skip songs).
To me, the mini looks like a great entry solution for those who are looking to get started with a Mac but do not want to spend the money. $499 is cheap and a decent monitor does not cost too much. You’d basically be paying the same for a lower end Dell.
Anyway, it is just some exciting news out of Cupertino, California.
