Which MP3 Player Compatible with Mac?

I need to find a hi-end mp3 player that is compatible with my desktop MacPro 2.93 GHz (not the Mac Book Pro), running Snow Leopard 10.6.4.

Features I'm looking for in an mp3 player:
- compatible with Mac
- mp3, mp4, wav, flv, jpg, gif
- good resolution for reading articles (pdf, text, rtf)
- at least a 3" screen
- long battery life
- Internet/e-mail capable (optional)

I will using the mp3 player mostly for educational purposes: audio/video files, and reading articles (that I upload from my computer)

I'm willing to spend around $300-$350.

Sounds like what you are looking for *is* the ipod touch, but with some additional file format support. An Android MID might offer that, but I haven't seen any that get good reviews. Can you convert your files to formats the ipod can use, or do you have something against the ipod devices?

Excellent site boswd, except that they are very very anti-apple as I am as well. Answer is anything made by apple.

yeah both sites have pretty much filled with audiophiles and apple is sort of a joke to them in terms of audio quality. IOW all fluff no substance.
It is rather true, i bought a couple of SanDisks and compared them to my iPod nano's 5G and it really was no comparison, the iPods tend to have a more digitalized sound as where the sandisk clip+ and the fuze had more what you call a "sound stage" the instruments separation and clarity was more pronounced on the sandisk's and much cheaper.
Let alone the support for FLAC.
but I digress

but as the op the the iPod touch would be your best bet.
