Is it the ipod or are there even better ones out there?
a smaller size one there are quite a few options out there. If you want ones with bigger capacity then there is not much choice. Microsoft Zune is probably the only major other choice doing a 120gb one. Though which ever one you chose your will want to save a bit of money to buy some better headphones, especially if its an ipod, as the headphones it comes with are awfull.
If you don't want more than 16gb then the Sony ones are the best. They are far superior sound quality-wise compared to ipods (and the supplied headphones are amazing) and it's really easy to add music to them - just drag and drop. This is the one I have and it's great http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-Walkman-NWZ-S639FB-Video-Player/dp/B001FB56PC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1247920073&sr=8-1 .
If you want more capacity then get an Ipod I guess. There is a 32gb Sony X series walkman but it's quite pricey http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-Walkman-NWZX1060B-32GB-MP4-Player/dp/B001RTS5UK/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1247920073&sr=8-6
