I don’t want to dampen anyone’s spirits since we’re giving away a Zune 80GB, but I just felt that you should know what you’re getting yourself into. Other than capacity, the biggest concern should always be battery life. Many of you commute at some point during your day and who wouldn’t want some Positive Vibrations or an episode or two of Dexter to watch? In any case, I’d try and win the iPod Classic because the Zune 80 can only muster up about 22 hours of audio playback with the Wi-Fi turned off. It’s rated at 30 hours. The iPod Classic is a champ at 45 hours. Just thought you should know.
