It's hard to believe, but evidently not everyone has heard about the new iPods yet! I think the new shuffle is the greatest, hands down. It costs just $79, holds a whole gig, is really tiny, looks super-slick, and if you buy directly from the Apple Store you can get it engraved for free! Plus it has a clip, and the new earphones are supposed to be much better than the old ones!
The new models of the regular iPod and the Nano are also supposed to be great, but if you don't want to shell out that much cash, go for a refurbished player: Apple sells them for as little as $99 for a Nano or Mini.
But really, everyone should buy the new shuffle. And if someone wants to buy me one, all the better!
