Default Gonna get an iPod... Ooh. Which one?

NOTE: IF YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT A REALLY LONG AND UNRELATED STORY ABOUT HOW I DECIDED TO SAVE FOR AN iPod, SKIP THE FIRST PARAGRAPH.


So, I am in 7th grade. I was gonna get a CHINCHILLA! Actually, a dwarf bunny! But then I have to pay to get it spayed/neutered! Then it was a ferret! But ferrets have to have that expensive operation done to them, too! So it was a chinchilla! YAAAAAAY! After my hamsters died! Which isn't necessarily a good thing at all since they are my babies! And anyway we just got another one! Whoopee! YEAH! 5 months ago! Yay! But that will be another 2-3 years! WOOOOOOOHOOOO.... Um... Okay. I just wore ALL my happy out right there. Yup. Lemme see... Yaaaaaaay... Uh-huh. All wasted. M'KAY! Back on subject. So, I if I'm in 7th grade, and 2-3 years of hamsters means... Ah... (goes to local science lab, does a crapload of tests, holds up 2 fingers on one hand and 3 on the other and says, "Either of these is how many years to go!") ...What? Can't a girl steal a gag from Family Guy??? Alright, anyways, I'll be in high school then no matter what... Unless Summer dies underage, which I doubt will happen, since my hammies are always livin' the good life (especially with Summer's HUGE new cage I bought just for her). I did have a hamster that died at 1 1/2 years, but that was only because he had pretty much every health problem you could think of, even Down's syndrome! He died of a hernia rupture. So after they died, I was going to get a chinchilla. I was saving up and looking online for chinchilla supplies, studying the animal at every chance, my heart set on that fuzzy little guy. Turns out the actual animal is $160 smack itself, and the cheapest suitable cage I can find was around $210. The food, toys , and essential accessories (water bottle, food dish, wheel, and stuff like that) that I looked at I didn't add up, but I'm assuming around $100. And the bedding and food would keep piling up as it lives its rather long life. Chinchillas live around 20 years, so that would be during college and past, where my mom would have to take care of the chinchilla. She's 50 and a smoker since age 12 (OMG! I'm 12!) and I don't really want her smoking around my chinchilla (ALWAYS have my door shut with a blanket shoved under the crack. Mom isn't allowed in my room while smoking. There's enough air pollution already in the world, and my room doesn't need any more than that.) and hardly ever playing with it, even though she takes Summer out before I go to bed and feeds Sandra and Summer hamster-edible table food quite frequently. ...She's feeding them right now as I type this sentence! But, back on subject, I decided no chinchilla until after college. Oh! One thing. My dad is a deadbeat, but he's in Huber jail now, so we get a little money. But, either way, I get no allowance. So no chinchilla for me.

So, what to buy now? ...Alright, what is #1 on my Christmas list? Oh! Of course! That iPod. No, I don't want it just to be cool, I'm a music addict and shed my (un-)eternal love for Pokemon last year, explaining why I'm not on too much. I'm a huge music video fan as well. I know all the top artists and am addicted to my mp3 player. I call myself "The Kiss FM Queen." So an iPod would be P-E-R-F-E-C-T for me. I don't know which kind to get, though, so can you help me out here? Oh! Look below to find details on what I do and don't want in an iPod. Keep in mind that I get a good chunk of money every year for Christmas; pretty sure it was $300. My summer savings for the chinchilla were... $8.73. Hey, that was actually really good for me. I'll be getting the stuff at Wal*Mart. Also keep in mind the added cost of a protective case, which I will get. You know... Clear front, colored grip back? Usually black back, but other colors as well? I want an iDog, too, but that will just be on my Christmas list, for that works with mp3 players also.

What I want
  • An iPod. (duh)
  • An iPod that can play movies and music videos.
  • A good hunk 'o memory.
  • Something they still make protective cases for.
  • An iPod that won't bust the $308.73 budget (remember that the cost of the protective case is also added)
  • Something with a sexy design, like the Classic or the Nano before Nano-chromatic.
  • Something that is totally pwnsome in every way possible.


What I don't want
  • An iPod touch; not worth the money for the space.
  • An iPhone; I just got a phone! A $15 DOLLAR PAY-AS-YOU-GO PHONE. iPhones are a real rip. And I hate stick phones anyway. And did I mention I can't afford that thing?
  • iPod Shuffle. Even though it's a really small $50, I'd rather stick with my mp3 player than a Shuffle.
  • The first Nano or a Nano-chromatic. Hate the design.
  • Anything I won't get my money's worth of.

well... if you can't afford an Ipod touch or iphone, and you don't want a nano, than the Ipod classic is the way to go. The 80GB is a good choice.

That's pretty much the only choice she left, anyway.

I recommend the iPod Classic. I looked it up on the Apple website and got this:
120GB1
30,000 songs
150 hours of video

$249.00

That means you get about 50$ left to play with for a case. ;)
Of course, I say about because you may need to pay taxes.
You can look at these sites to see how much they cost:
Apple
Best Buy

Uh, after all the things you don't want are put in, there is only one Ipod left, the classic video... they're too bulky for me though.

I don't like them though, I want a small Ipod, like the new, Nano, 16 gb is quite enough for me. The Ipod Touch has gone down to...

Wal-Mart isn't the best place to get this stuff, they don't have many of the Ipods in stock. I suggest the Apple Online Store, and Wal-mart will have the stuff in stock on their website. Shipping is usually free too.

Get the 80 Gig iPod classic instead of the 120 gig one. Keep in mind, 30,000 songs.. That's a lot. My mom is putting at least 5-10 new songs on her ipod every week. She has had it for two years. She has used up almost half the space. (in her 20 or 30 Gig dinosaur of an ipod. (does'nt even have cover flow)) And you have to figure the cost of music on iTunes. I got my ipod Nano, and I was OUT of money. I owned 3 CD's at the time, which I did'nt really like that much. So I Was stuck. You are going to want around 30.00 in ITunes Giftcards (giftcards are a much easier way of buying songs than buying them with debit. TRUST me. It is so much trouble to go ask my mom if I can buy a song, she says yes, then I give here 1.50. then she buys it. Much easier to just say "buy" and it takes it off your giftcard money.) And, you also have to keep in mind chargers and Docking station if you want to play it through a speaker in your room or something. It only comes with a charger where you can charge it through your computer. A pain in the ass!
But anyways, 80G iPod Classic is the way to go.

There are other ways to get songs than from itunes :x. Also, the charger comes free with it so you don't need to pay for that D:. I would get the 120 gig just because it has more space for videos :s

I only have 4Gig on mine... And by the way, you are supposed to pay for songs. Those free music websites are illegal.

I guess I could do the online store. Except at Wal*Mart, they had this freakishly pwnsome protective case. So, I might get it there. And, besides! The case I saw online. The only reason I want 80GB is 'cause I don't think I'll use it all up, so why spend the extra cash?

That's my standpoint on things.

I use Limewire, they seriously don't expect me to pay a dollar a song for my 100+ playlist?

That's a whole differant discussion. I could never fill up 120GB though. xD

Not to be off topic, but the whole illegal thing is dumb. Every time you watch a show online or read a manga online or any of that stuff, when it isn't sponsered by the makers, it's illegal. So... Like watching anime on Youtube, illegal.

Back on topic though.

I have the 80GB. It's nice. You're not gunna ever use all of it, unless you like download every song in existence and keep them all on you Ipod at one time. Plus with the 80 you'll have some extra money for whatever.

Wow SunshineWingull, you dislike a lots of kind of iPods. o_O. Listend to SaMaster14, Poring, Cherry, and 50% believe Dark Turtwig.

If you want to get file sharing progroms like Bearshare, eMule, Limewire, Frostwire, Shareaza, etc.,

Get eMule! Limewire is just an overated crappy program that has many trojans, and malware, and false downloads. Sometimes with the false downloads gets porn as well. It is stupid and sad that some people think that Limewire is the only P2P program out there, however eMule is the second know P2P clinet in the world. eMule is better if you have a faster machine, it also has a Kad network, and the original eDonkey2000 network. It also has more files, and the Kad network is use to get rare files, and the ones that are exclusive in each county. Long ago, there was an extremely popular P2P clinet called eDonkey2000, but it got closed down becuase of the law in some countries. The the makers of eDonkey2000 made eMule later. I'm suprize that stupid Limewire crap didn't get closed down.
