This is one reason we love our older Archos units. I have a V1 and it works
great despite a broken DC-in jack. I never run out of power, thanks to an
external charger and extra batteries.

Is there any mp3 player in production that uses a standard 2.5 inch laptop

The gmini 220 uses a 1.8" disk, which don't come in standard thicknesses. As
mentioned in the earlier iriver-related thread, the 40 gig 1.8" disk is much
thicker than the 20 gig and will not fit into a device designed for the 20

The 1.8" disks also don't come in large data capacities. The largest
available on the market is 40 gig. Toshiba is making a 60-gig disk but is
apparently using them all for their own mp3 player Gigabeat F60. Rumor has
it that Apple has a standing order for all "leftover" 60 gig disks. In any
case there are none to be found on the open market.

That's the price you pay for having a physically small player, I'm afraid.
