IMO only apple devices worth using is classic or touch. Classic for storage space, touch for spotify, google music, pandora etc support and external dac support. The nano just can't compete with the cheaper sony walkmans imo. the shuffle is practically useless, especially when sansa clip zip is cheaper, same-ish size, has expandable storage and rockbox.
How does the classic harrddrive hold up to say getting your headphone cable caught on something and having it fall on the floor? Now that I've seen 128gb micro sd cards as low as $99 I don't particularly see much advantage to a hard drive based player. I wish apple would just make an ipod touch with a cheaper but more indestructible screen and i would probably be all over it. But, I may be the first person ever to just ftp over my entire music collection just to avoid itunes. edit btw today was the day I saw it for that price http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1034096-REG/sandisk_sdsdqui_128g_a46_128gb_ultra_micro_sdxc.html
