    My first was an iPod Video, 30GB, at whatever the prevailing MSRP was.

    iPod Nano 5th Generation 16GB.

    My first step out of the CD player world and my first step in to the Apple world.

    It was bought in February 2006, and came with 30GB (the maximum at the time); I think - although I cannot be sure - it was the fifth generation iPod. Likewise, while I cannot recall the exact sum of money I paid, my vague memory is that it cost in or around €300.

    I know this is gonna sound far fetched, but i have 5 ipods. And they were all given to me, for free.... (I had 6 but i sold one to get my iPhone)

    My first iPod was a 4th Gen Shuffle (got it for christmas 2010). My second iPod was a 3rd gen nano. (I found it on the ground at the grocery store) My 3rd iPod was my 4th gen touch. (Got it for christmas 2012) my 4th iPod was another 3rd gen nano. (Kid at school gave me it to me to use for parts for my other one) 5th iPod was a 6th gen nano (same kid from school gave me it cuz it had water damage) FINALLY, my latest iPod is my 3rd gen classic. My moms boyfriend gave it to me cuz it didnt work supposedly (but i found out it just needs a firewire charger)

    I guess you can say im lucky lol

    My first iPod was a 1GB first generation nano in black. I was so stoked that the 1GB was announced later on because I had just enough money. I think it was $150?

    iPod 4 gen

    In my case it was 40 gigs iPod 4gen purchased at Saturn in Dusseldorf (Königsallee). I definitely paid too much, but I just wanted my first Apple gadget.
    Then I went to the airport and while waiting for my plane I was trying to put some music in it. I was surprised, that I could not just copy MP3s and that I had to use something called iTunes. And discovering the function of the click wheel without reading manual was fun. This piece of Apple hardware still serves me as a music source for iTube Fatman amp.

    My first iPod was the original one, 5GB with the wheel that actually spins instead of the touch-sensitive one introduced soon after. I paid $399. It was totally worth it.

    My first iPod--and my first music device that didn't use removable media:

    [​IMG]

    iPod nano, 2nd generation, in blue as shown here. Price was either $149 or $179 (I can't remember which at this point).

    It was perhaps the most elegant piece of electronics I've owned thus far. My wife, who at the time had a Sandisk Sansa, was envious-- not at its aesthetics, but at its rock-solid reliability; her Sansa was really finicky.

    It was stolen in a burglary, and I replaced it with a 5th gen.

    The original one with the scroll wheel, $399. So elegant! It still works, too, although I had to replace the display once when I cracked it replacing the battery. I about fell over when the iPod launched. A dream I hadn't even dreamed of dreaming!

    1st Generation. 5GB. I didn't pay a penny for it since it was a gift. I ended up selling it so I could afford a 3rd Generation when they came out. I sometimes wish I'd just saved up the full amount for the 3rd Gen and kept my 1st Gen.

    iPod mini 4GB as a gift. That was a very :eek: gift. There was no way I could have bought one at that time.

    For me, it was the 2nd generation iPod nano, 4GB of storage in (PRODUCT)RED. Beautiful device until I let my brother borrow it and it got stolen out of his car. It even had my name and phone # engraved on it. Haha.

    I'm not sure what I payed, it was $199 MSRP, but I think it got a good discount with our mid 2007 iMac it came with.
