I finally took the plunge and bought an mp3/wma/fm player, it was about $2900NT at the Gongua Computer Market and comes with 256MB of storage.
Shop around, some of the stores there were selling it for $3600 and others for anywhere in between 2900-3600.
This player is a bit more pricey than the others, but its extremely light and thin, albeit a bit long. Its also more pricey because the battery is internal and rechareable, charges off the USB port (USB port built into the mp3 player so no cable required). I highly recommend getting a player with built in USB so you can use it as a portable USB storage device should you ever need to take something last minute from the office back home.
After 12 hours of use, my only gripe is the menu keeps changing back from english to chinese and player seems to scratch easily, may get a case for it.
This is a no-name player, but there are similar players by U-Best thats a little shorter and thicker as well. I chose this one because the earphone jack is at the top of the player and its so thin it easily fits in a shirt or pant pocket without any visible bulges.
I will take some pics and attempt to post links here…
Nvrmnd, I found an ebay auction of my player, so can just go there for pics
