Depends, If I were rich I would have a iPod Touch, Classic and Shuffle. A iPod Touch to watch movies etc on long flights. Classic to store hundreds of Gigs of music for parties and a Shuffle for running / working out. I think that the best iPod is relative to what the consumer would use it most for.

If money were no object, I’d go with the 32 MB Touch.

@loser I second that. I have an iPod touch only 8 GB though, my dad got it for me for xmas and he dosent know what a GB is so I guess he just grabbed the cheapest one..

I have a classic, phone and shuffle, and I have to say, I really like everything about the shuffle.

I’m also very destructive with my things. I can throw the shuffle across the room and will still work.

The nano seems like a waste of money.

I loved my nano to bits, til I got the touch. I love the touch and all it’s apps and features.

Definately the iTouch. It does everything the phone does but you don’t have to talk on the phone.

ipods are for music, not for wasting time doing random shit. anything that stores all your music and has the capacity to continue your library is the answer. end of story.

That’s like asking “What is the best car?”. It depends on what you use it for. For some people the best car or automobile would be a truck, others a sedan, others a minivan.

iPods are the same way. If you want to take your entire music collection with you plus tons of movies, etc then a Classic will give you the storage you need. If you want it for exercising and want the smallest, easiest to use model then a Shuffle is right, or even a Nano for a compromise between size and function. The Touch is great for doing things other than just listen to music, such as watch movies or use any of the thousands of applications on the App Store. You would not want to exercise or run with a classic, as it has a spinning hard drive inside that can be easily damaged by a lot of movement and bumps. All of the other iPods use flash memory which is solid state and not damaged by running as there are no moving parts. Budget also plays a factor, as the price difference between a Shuffle and a Touch is very large. Really just depends on what you want to use it for and what you want to get out of your iPod.
