    personally, I would get the classic, since I already have an older nano, both are great iPods though, so you would be happy with either. Base your decision on how important having all of your music with you is, if you can get by with less storage, the Nano will be great, if you need all of your music with you you have no choice but the classic.

    You mind as well suggest he gets a 42" LCD TV as your suggestion obviously has nothing to do with what he was looking for.


    ..anyway

    I personally would pick the classic simply because I love having the capacity to hold most of my collection without having to pick and choose.

    If you..
    - want a smaller player
    - need FM radio
    - want a (poor) video camera
    - have a tendency to drop things (since it is flash based it can take beatings better than the classic can)
    - have a small enough collection or can easily pick what you want and don't want.
    - You don't plan on expanding your collection much.
    Go with the 5th Gen Nano

    If you..
    - want superior battery life
    - want superior capacity
    - hard drive fragility isn't a issue for you
    - interested in holding video (16GB nano isn't going to do much for holding video)
    - don't mind the larger form factor (some prefer it, fits much more comfortably in hand for me in comparison to the nano)
    Go with the classic

    Spot on. This should be saved and given to anyone in this scenario. No one can tell you what to get but you. I can tell you to get an iPod Touch, but why?

    You need to determine what your needs are. I've been in your shoes. When I finally decided to move to an Intel Mac, I had no idea what to get. In the end, it came down to what I liked most and why.

    Balance off your needs, set a price limit, and go from there. If you listen to someone else, you may end up wishing you listened to yourself. :)

    Very well put, and I agree with your conclusion. To the OP, my recommendation also would be to go for the classic.

    Cheers
