I have a 16GB Touch and absolutely love it. There's more than enough room for me (8 would be tight though). For videos, just don't put a bunch on at once. If it's movies and TV shows, you're not going to watch all of them, so a few at a time should be fine and then just switch when you feel like it. Like Yoda said, when I'm sitting around watching TV getting out the Touch is way easier than booting up a laptop, depending on what it is you want to do. You do need a hot spot, but I have a wireless network at my house, so that isn't a problem, and since next year I'll be on a college campus, I'll be covered pretty much wherever I go. Again, it's much easier than lugging a laptop around if you just want to check a couple quick things when you run to lunch or something.
