I got my gf hooked on iPods earlier this summer when I got her her first--a pink 8GB 4th generation nano. Recently I asked her what she wanted for Christmas and she told me she now wants a silver classic, so I picked that up for her and gave it to her as an early Christmas present, and once again found myself lusting after that polished stainless back and the experience of opening a new iPod, and now I want another classic. My first iPod was a 1st generation silver 4GB mini, but somewhere along the way it got lost (I replaced it this past spring with the 2nd generation 4GB listed below--found one sealed NIB on ebay). My current collection consists of: --2nd generation mini 4GB--silver --2nd generation mini 6GB--silver --5th generation video 30GB--black --5.5 generation video 30GB--white --1st generation touch 32GB --4th generation nano 16GB--green --6.5 generation classic 120GB--silver Of the iPods I've had, the mini has always stood out as my favorite because it just seemed perfect in every way and perhaps I'm biased since it was my first iPod, but I think these days I'm finally moving on and accepting that the classic (120 or new 160 GB flavors) is my favorite player of all time. The touch is fantastic, but at the end of the day it's just a novelty for me because I have to take it out of my pocket and look at it to switch songs, whereas with the clickwheel I can just reach to my back pocket and switch songs and adjust the volume without taking it out. So what's your favorite iPod of all time??
