Most of my collection is Punk, so most of my tunes are roughly 2 mins long (gotta love the thought that goes into punk song writing) . . . Right now i've got 180 tunes on my 512mb iPod shuffle

I fit about 150 on my sister's shuffle, some short (Batman theme song), and some long (If I Had $1000000 Live). So if you had all short, you could easily fit more onto the 512MB shuffle, even if it is only 491MB.

[EDIT] I just did a test playlist, and got 219 songs, ranging from 0:00 to 3:07 (very few under 1:30) into 491.6MB, very close to what the shuffle holds.
