Apple iPod mini 4 GB
Advantages: Nice styling, solid and dependable.
Disadvantages: Poor battery life.
My iPod, my first, nearly my last.
Not quite but for the time this thing was the best.
A thousand songs in my pocket? Unheard of, for an affordable price? From apple? What on earth ...
But thats what was being offered here, this was the same iPod as the higher end versions, just slightly cut down and with a very cool - in my opinion - silver shell.
4 Gig of storage nowadays sounds pretty terrible for a stand alone player but back then, man it was great - I could fit a good portion of my music collection on it and the stuff that I couldn't get on there, I could just cycle on later on with the fantastic I tunes integration. It really was a marvel back then.
However, is it worth it today ? Well if you can get one that still works - and a battery that isn't totally dead hell yes it is, it's somewhat coming back into fashion, it's a little bit different than the other iPods all taking on the iPhone 4 look. In my opinion- they just don't look as good.
The only thing that's holding you back is the slightly tinny sound, which can easily be remedied with a decent set of headphones.
So go on, pick it up for a tenner on ebay - it's much cheaper than todays players, and it's stylings are just old enough to be retro.
Summary: A good bargain if you want a retro mp3 player,
