    Classic wont run apps, just plays music and/or video, whereas touch has apps available, still plays music and can be used on the internet if you have a wireless connection.

    I would go for the touch.

    32gb is plenty. You can fit about 7000 tracks on that. If he didnt put any apps on! :D

    Definitely get a touch. The classic only plays music and videos the touch does so much more. Definitely better value :)

    Lol - don't get me started on technology!

    I have the classic - 160gb to store all sorts of stuff. Then I got the Touch, great I though - I now get wifi and the apps.

    However, take the Touch away from a wifi connection or outside etc. then I realised I needed connectivity (3g) so the Iphone 4 was added so I can get online without wifi!

    There was an inevitability about getting the Ipad to compete the line-up! - I'll leave you to calculate the total cost and marvel at Apple's marketing skills to convince me (and probably many others) to purchase or desire stuff I don't need!

    I bought my hubby a touch for Xmas 09 and he adored it for messing around on the net at home rather than getting the laptop out. As of December he is now the proud owner of an iPhone so I have inherited his touch (which I am typing on now!) and I love it. It's great for listening to music and the apps and access to the net (while at home) is great

    Definitely the Touch - I have upgraded to the iPad :D but I still use my Touch while out jogging or like Sarah said without having to get the MacBook Pro out (can you tell I am an Apple freak!!!) xx

    I've got an i-touch but find wi-fi isn't always available, and the screen is a little to small for my liking. I too have been eyeing up the i-pad which I know I'll eventually get, well I think before I go on hols in December:D
