I think it depends on what you will mostly use it for. I'm going to run/exercise with mine, so I want a small mp3 player... as light as I can get.

If I had a 40GB iPod, and I put songs on it that were, say, 35,000kb each @ 1411 quality, how many songs could I fit on it?

Looks good...especially the silver version :)
But like most others have pointed out, the biggest gripe is the price.

The way I figure it, close to 1,050. You're talking about loading 35MB songs onto a unit that holds 40,000MB. For a 40GB disk, that's not too great though. I would compress to a 320kbps MP3 if you're wanting quality over quantity. You'd get a lot more songs on there, and you wouldn't notice a difference in quality... especially through headphones.

One of these new ipods would have been great, but I don't want something that will get fubar.

Iriver products are great. Frequently updated firmware. (limited) vorbis support. Plus they come with sennheiser headphones, which is a step above most portables.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
