I've got an old 10G "standard" iPod that works just fine. However, there is a decent chance that we could soon be moving to a multiple iPod family. I think there may be a Shuffle or 2 in our future, although it is possible that there could be a Nano in there instead.

<Sidebar> One of the things that about Apple that I like as an investor, but that drives me nuts as a consumer is their "temptation curve." That is, I want "this", but for just a little more I could get the next step up. Then, once you've accepted that, the next step is just a little bit more. Example: iPod Shuffle 512: $69. Double your storage for just $30 more. Move up to 1G Nano for just $50 more. Double storage for just $50. Double it again for another $50. Move up to video and 7.5x the storage for $50 more. Aaaaaaaaaaarrrgggghhh!
</Sidebar>

Anyway, whether it's Nano or Shuffle, they won't have enough storage for the entire library (currently sitting around 7GB). My question is this - how well is synching from 1 Mac to multiple iPods handled? Can you easily specify what portion of the library gets synched?
