Well, I tried the mp3 player. It didn't suck completely, but you can get a better one in bubble pack at CVS for $20. Since for $49.99, you can get a Sansa Clip+, I doubt the jetBook will get much use. Especially since I have 2 PDAs, a cell phone, and a laptop that can play both .mp3 files and .wma files (which the jetBook doesn't play). In retrospect, the jetBook Lite without the mp3 player and $30 less looks like a good deal.
