Pros I, like most people who build computers, have a big chip on their shoulder about Apple products. I didn't like that I couldn't change the battery and all that stuff, and had heard that the battery life was paltry. I went to the store intent that I was g
Cons Once the battery dies that will suck, but in two years perhaps something better will have come out that I will want to replace this. The software installation isn't totally intuitive, but if you are remotely computer literate it's no problem. I also wis

Pros good first Ipod
Cons Battery problems and screen clarity
Summary GREAT for first time ipoders. At the time it was the only one that made sense. I opted this model over the similar dell for a good reason. Apple has been producing the iPod for what at the time had been 4 years. I trusted a brand that had been making it for a longer time. I had the typical battery problem. It has now been replaced by a 40 gig photo and given to my sister.
Pros Excellent Design, Menu System is the Best!
Cons Smaller battery than other models
Summary The 3G iPod may be the best designed iPod Apple has released. The only short coming of this model is the battery capacity is lower than other iPods. When Apple created the 3G ipod it was much smaller than other models and the only batteries that fit the model were of a lower capacity.
With the seperate buttons and wheel controlling this unit without looking at it is a breeze and great for car use. Tons of accesories like the iTrip and Monster iCase with charger and other goodies make this unit a road warrior!
After nearly one year of use mine is still going strong, has had zero problems and still has 4gigs free for more music. For those that complain that they are always releasing new products, quit crying, sell your old one and buy a new one. The iPod has the highest resale value of any MP3 player. As far as I am concerned it took Apple nearly year to beat this model, with the new $339 iPod Photo.
Pros Holds a buncha songs, not bad for the price. Good support. Loox great, makes people go "wow" till you find out 2 months later, there's a new generation. At the very least, is a better buy than the mini.
Cons I HAD TO GET IT REPLACED TWICE! The first replacement was "new" as they sed...but it was definitely refurbished. Battery life. Super sensitive buttons. The headphones could have been better. SCRATCHES EASY! The ipod itself is sooo problematic...but i'm to
Pros Good-looking, dont have to carry ur cd's with you and easy to carry.
Cons It sucks! Ok, the first week I had it, it froze and could not be recognized by my computer(imac). Then when I tried to connect it to another mac, it screwed up the computer! I talked to the tech support, asked me to reset it but terrible instructions! Not
