I had a play with one today in-store (they didn't have the colour/capacity she wanted, so I ordered online via the apple site) and they really are rather nice. The integrated video camera is quite impressive, and the nano itself is rather cute.
Naturally, I want one. And, as I have a new job alongside the redundancy money, I think I might just get one myself.
Maybe not in purple though. Whilst it is a rather splendid purple, having two the same colour would rather lead to confusion.
So. Black? Silver? Hmm.
