Uh oh, warranty about to expire.

I've owned an iPod for almost a year now, and my warranty's about to expire. I didn't buy AppleCare back when I registered it, but since then I have sent it back for a replacement since the hard drive stopped working... shipping cost $30 since I didn't have AppleCare, which costs $60, so it was a good deal.

Now - I'm not 100% pleased with my iPod. It does what I want it to do and its playlist management is astounding, but that's all iTunes features - I'd really rather have an MP3 player like a Zen or whatever... egh, I don't know though. I'm not sure whether it's worth $60 to extend my warranty (for only a year), or just keep the iPod until it breaks and then get a new MP3 player, for something like $300. I can't be sure how long my iPod is going to last (and given what people have said about its battery, it just might not last that long).

I'm leaning towards spending the $60 and guaranteeing its life for at least another year, and then much later decide what I'll do... do you, faithful readers, have any other insight?

edit: Bought the protection plan for $47. Hooray student discount.
