    Ok, so I loved my old 4th generation Ipod Mini... it has been dropped out of windows, down stairs, smacked off things, and it weathered it. Until this morning, I dropped it (accidentally of course) from a height of about 18 inches and it died, cracked hard drive. RIP my garish lime-green Mini.

    Anyway, on to the question. The Mini was built like a tank. The reason I have held off buying a nano, and, by extension, a video, is becuase well... they look fragile. Can any owners testify as to whether they are indeed very fragile, easily breakable etc. and are the rumours I have been hearing about screen problems all they are cracked up to be? (get it? cracked?.... ahahaha)

    I dropped mine (iPod Video) down a flight of carpeted stairs in the original crappy case they give, but nothing happened. I think the iPod Mini was one of the strongest iPods ever due to it being made of aluminium.

    Nanos should be pretty durable, if not more so since they are flash memory rather than a HDD.

    If you are worried you can buy solid clear plastic cases. They are very resistant and protect your iPod well Look pretty snazzy too.
