Ipods: best value for money?

At $2.07 per gigabyte the classic is best value for money.

At $2.07 per gigabyte the "classic" is best value for money.

I have recently been on the market to replace my 80 gigs ipod for a new one. I use my ipod principally to listen to podcasts and as an external hard-drive.

I have been surprised by a discontinuity in terms of hard drive space.

The Shuffle and itouch range between 8 and 32 gigs. The next data point is 120 gigs for the ipod classic.

I have put all the pricing (from apple’s US store) into a spreadsheet and compared prices and features. If you are looking to maximise dollars spent per gigabyte, then the “classic” is by far your best option.
