Get a Microsoft Zune :) I don't like Ipods either. My first MP3 player was this
It's a 1GB Sandisk and it was $120
Then I upgraded to this...a Creative Zen Vision M , 32 GB...it was $250
Currently I have this and I love it. It's a 16GB Zune...it was $170
Currently you can get Zune MP3 players in 2, 8 or 16 GB that look like the one above.
You can get 80 and 120's that look like this:
Also Zune makes touch screen HD players that look like this:
They come in 16, 32 and 64.
The prices vary from store to store.
Hope this helped :)
