Why not just get a Nano or Classic?
I don't think you can still by the 3rd gen new since it is a really old edition iPod. Also, there really isn't much point in doing so since they are very outdated. I would recommend just getting a Nano or Classic. You can get the previous generation pretty cheaply on the refurb or clearance section at the online Apple store.
maybe he wants to run ipodlinux Apple is a butt and its not installable on the classic or new nanos because of encryption and copy protection issues.
Well wouldn't a 3G iPod be a little more that a bit outdated too?
They were just updated so I don't think you have anything to worry about unless you were referring to the form factor, but that will be replaced by the iPod touch eventually which I don't think you're interested in.
I just wish someone would release a good media player that lets you run whatever the hell you want on it without restrictions.
YOU bought it. It's YOURS. Why should a company put all these restrictions on it?
It took me a little while to get used to the classic coming from a 4th gen. Give it a chance. You will appreciate the extra space. At this point you would probably end up paying a "collectors" price for a boxed older ipod. I will recommend getting a refurbed 160GB on the Apple site. Room to grow.
5th gen / classic are the same hardware wise (apart from aluminium), though the classic has revamped software/UI
I would suggest that the current classic will remain for a while and eventually be the last click-wheel iPod.
I would hope the clickwheel will be around for a long time. As cool as the touch is, I much prefer physical buttons.
