SSDs are coming shortly so it would be wise to think about your future storage purchases.

Until that problem is solved, I would wait. Quote: "The cost per gigabyte of a 2.5-in. SSD is something like five times that of a hard disk drive," Wong said".

Solid state drives are used on the larger ipods and MP3/4 players

Which therefore means said player is no longer fully jog proof because of the moving parts in the SSD (contrary to flash-based players, which have much smaller capacities - up to 16gb I believe)
