Which iPod should you buy?

QMy children both want MP3 players for Christmas. They have been quite emphatic: Only iPods will do. However, I've seen a couple of iPods. I'm not sure how they differ. Can you help me decide which model to buy them?

AOne would think that buying an iPod would be easy. Unfortunately, it can be confusing, if you aren't following Apple's product announcements.

It seems that Apple introduces a new iPod every few months! So, keeping up with all the different models is no small feat.

There are four types of iPods. Let's start with the iPod classic. The classic is similar to the original iPods. But it has received many upgrades over the years. It is now in its sixth generation.

The classic is the only model that still uses a hard drive. Hard drives are falling out of favor. They break easily and have a relatively short lifespan.

But hard drives offer unparalleled storage. The classic's drive measures 120 gigabytes. It sells for $250. You can choose from a silver or black brushed metal case.

The classic is good for people who have a lot of music—like 30,000 songs. It plays videos, too. However, many people find the 2.5-inch screen uncomfortably small. It isn't too bad for viewing pictures, though.

The hard drive model is just one of four. Click here for the others.
