I'm thinking about getting an iPod after Christmas and am unsure whether to get a Classic or a Touch.

Obviously the touch is much cooler but you get less memory for your money. Also, I'm wondering how much use I would get out of the internet/youtube e.t.c.

Could those who have either share their experiences with me and gives me your opinions.

Me too! The only opinion anyone has ever given me is that the Classic is outdated now and so why would you buy something that is on its way out? But like you, I am not sure its worth getting a Touch if if I won't get much use out of the internet/email etc.
I'd be very interested to hear what others think...

I have same problem and I'm going for the classic, here's my mane reason: The classic DOES need to use iTunes but you DON'T rely on them. You can rip movies into it, now the Touch fully relies on iTunes, if you buy it you will be locked in the iTunes world. And another thing - No screen protector=LOTS of fingerprints, buy the classic, it's better

i have an ipod classic 80gb very good ipod no problems at all

id say get an ipod classic becuase like you said you get much more memory for your money, 16gb isn't much really especially if you want videos and photos on their too.

My Dad's friend works for Apple and we have been emailing him to see whether to go for the touch or the classic. He says that if you have a huge music collection then go for the classic as you will be mainly using it for music. But, if you are the type to delete music that goes out of date, then the touch is for you!!!! IT is really confusing cos my Dad wants me to get the classic but i don't want it because i would make good use of the different apps and the wifi so he needs persuading......

I've recently bough a classic, but realised that I just don't need anything like 120 Gb of memory. I've put about 60 albums on there and only used 5.8Gb. With a bit of shuffling of files I'll always be able to carry enough for a two-week holiday with, say 16 Gb. On the classic, the video display is too small to watch anything comfortably, so that's why I'm thinking of selling it and going for a touch...

I have the 80gb and the iPhone (which is also the 16gb touch). While I love the internet aspect, for the music I would always go with the classic as you can get loads more on there! 16gb is not a lot at all. 100 albums and you're through. It really depends on your needs.
