    He's gonna want an ipod!
    I have a couple and they are good, but dont have any experience of any other brands.
    I would think you get what you pay for.

    This....

    apple.com/uk/…ch/

    Starts @ £149 but you can download thousands of free games etc on itunes!!

    Well worth the money!! I've got an Iphone and love it!!

    he asked for a touch but then changed his mind he is 15

    Don't get any other ipods other than the touch.
    The rest are a bunch of crap if you ask me!
    I've used a range of mp3 players samsungs, sonys, apple, but if you want a mp3/mp4 player other than the touch I'd go for a walkman! I found that one the best out of the three companies other than the Touch ofcourse.

    I'm also 15 btw. Ipods seem the most popular choice but I don't think they are the best (again apart from the touch)

    If its their first MP3 I reckon you should get them a cheap one from anywhere thats not worth more than £50 and has a decent amount of memory say...4 - 8+GB

    The reason i say this is because they wouldn't know what do do with an ipod!

    Ipods = overpriced.

    How much music does he want to put on it?

    This is the one that I found the best out of the nano and yepp s5.

    Which is why I didn't like the yepp. And well ipods are outdated overpriced and they'd probably release another one 3 months later :thumbsup:.

    So you only like those because you can change the track in your pocket? The NWZ-S610s do it

    The touch has voice function to change the track? You can pause and play using the earphones which is I gotta say is really helpful and it goes on standby so you can just stop it and don't even need to turn off the ipod after :thumbsup:

    sansa clip get it on ebay cheap as chips ad rated better than ipods for sound quality and value for money

    other then the touch? the touch wouldnt even hold 50% of my music!
    Ive got a classic and its awesome, my girlfriend also has one. Although the classic doesnt fit all my music on, it fits majority of it on it. I would choose a classic over a touch any day as i can change the track in my pocket, fit more music, and less sensitive to breaking - the touch screen.

    Leading the market because people are too lazy too search for good value ones and just go for the most popular easy option.

    You haven't tried anything else so you'll believe that its soo easy. I'm sorry wait a sec I'm just getting all the songs back on my ipod that itunes just deleted by syncing.

    For a 15 year old, whose probably not so experienced with mp3 players I'd say get that a walkman then replace it with a touch later on if he actually uses it.:thumbsup:

    The sound and build quality of ipods isnt that great either in comparison to other players. Dont get me wrong they are good players, but there are better and cheaper options. As said market leading because MP3 became synonymous with Ipod in the early days.

    My recommendation is the Sansa fuze 1/2 the price plus expandable memory via micro SD and it also has a radio,
