The Apple iPod Touch has 8 GB of memory and comes with the iOS 5 operating system. 8 GB is enough for roughly 2,000 songs, 10,000 photos or 10 hours of video depending on file formats and sizes. The product is 4.4 x 2.3 x 0.3 inches. The rechargeable batteries are good for up to 40 hours of audio playback and 7 hours of video playback without needing to recharge and is 15% larger than before. You also get a one year limited warranty. Out of the 3,437 customers whom reviewed this iPod on the Amazon site, the average 5star rating given was 4.4 with 2,404 giving this iPod five stars while 224 gave it one star. I love the iPod touch. The most common complaint is that the glass seems to break more easily than others. I have had my iPod for years and have never had a problem yet. My only complaint is that the camera is not very good.
Apple iPod classic 160 GB Black (7th Generation) NEWEST MODEL: $229.00

This comes with 160 GB, with enough space for 40,000 songs, 25,000 photos and 200 hours of video depending on the file sizes and types. You can carry your entire library with you wherever you go! If I had to choose only one of this little guy’s features as being the best feature, it would be the size of the storage. It can even double as an external hard drive! The battery lasts for up to 36 hours of music playback or 6 hours of video. The screen is a 2.5 inch LCD with LED backlight and 320 x 240 pixels of resolution Of the 875 customers which reviewed this product, the average rating awarded was 4.2 stars out of five and 561 were five star ratings. The main problems are that even though the sound is great, it seems to be less than the last generation. This device is definitely focused on the music portion whereas the iPod touch is also used for internet browsing. On the plus side, no one complains of this one breaking as easily as the iPod touch.
