I own both the Zune 80 and the new iPod, the Zune KICKS the crap out of the iPod. Don't even consider it. The Zune is the best tech product I have bough in a LONG time.

First of all, the Zune 80 and the iPod Classic share very similar specs. They even cost the same. But in my opinion, the Zune has a few extras that the iPod doesn't thus making it a little better. To be honest, you could probably get either one and be happy with it, they are both good products. I'll list the advantages for each.

Zune Advantages
Slightly larger screen
Glass screen (instead of plastic, more scratch resistance)
WiFi (you can share songs/videos/photos but also wireless sync your music meaning you don't have to connect to computer)
Built in FM radio
Marketplace (you can purchase individual songs like iTunes or get 'all you can eat' subscription based method)
Personalize (not only get your name laser etched on the back but also designs, not a big deal but still)

iPod Advantages
Better battery life (about 4 longer mainly due to the wifi features of the Zune)
Games (not a huge deal but iPods include the ability for games)
Slightly smaller in size
Better software (as much as I dis-like iTunes, it's overall more solid than the Zune's)


So for me, the advantages for the Zune out weigh the advantages for the iPod. I really like the menu screens for the Zune but that is more of an opinion than a fact so I left that one out. iPod's coverflow is suppose to be kind of neat too so maybe those just cancel out.
