With student discounts available on both models to varying degrees, the price difference came out to $40, but I get 5 times the storage space and 50 percent better estimated battery life.
Plus it ships in 2 days, versus 2 months I keep hearing on forums and such. ANd Apple is throwing in free engraving Can't wait to get my new toy next week

The one thing I do want however is the microphone feature - I want to record my law school lectures - that large 20 gig drive will come in handy for that

That's the same model I purchased - glad to hear that you like it so much. Mine should arrive in a couple of days. I can't wait for it to be in my hands.
For a while I was worried about the criticism directed to the new 4G design and it's click wheel. But reading more into it, looks like most of the complaints are from die hard 3G fans. Also ordered the microphone accessory - I need to start recording my lectures
