Creative mp3 players are 1337!
Not as cool as an iPod, but a fraction of the price! I have a 256mb Creative MuVo. It's smaller than a Nano, and is a USB flash drive, so I can use it for file storage too. The interface is pretty good, and the included software is easy to use (it's also compatible w/ iTunes, which I use anyway).
Only problem is track arrangement, which is automatically sorted alphanumerically - unless the tracks are already arranged by number, they get out of order and I have to go back and rename my song files (i.e., 01 song.mp3 as opposed to song.mp3) so I can listen to them in order. There is a shuffle feature, but it doesn't support playlists.
But aside from that, it's great. Holds about 3 1/2 to 4 high-quality mode CD's, about the size of a bic lighter, and only cost about $60.
