iPod touch? Yes - No?

So this month I’m getting an influx of cash so I was thinking of getting a new MP3 player (I broke my 5 year old brick of a zen).

At the moment chances are I’m going for an iPod, but I’m open to all suggestions (Note: I’m in UK so some stuff I can’t have [zune as an example]).

So… current choice is an iPod touch, what does everyone think? What do you own? Etc?
