    Somebody at Apple obviously hates the phrase "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" because it has completely redesigned its best selling iPod, the iPod nano, yet again. This year's model is half the height of the previous generation and has the same clip-on design as the new iPod shuffle. The big change is that there's no click wheel, just a screen.

    Just when there were starting to be too many iPods to choose from, Apple comes along and simplifies the entire range. The new all-singing,all dancing iPods now have colour screens and a few extra features

    Apple iPod Classic review

    Apple doesn't make a specifically prescribed video player, but this hot-of-the-presses new generation of its flagship portable is the closest. The entry-level capacity is now 80Gb, and the top end a seemingly impossible 160Gb

    What does the word 'classic' suggest to you? A timeless masterpiece, a nostalgic yearning for the past. Or something that's past its prime? The new / old Apple iPod classic is all these things and more. Let us explain...

    Okay, so this isn't the long-awaited iPod video, but to be honest we don't really care - personal video players currently only have niche appeal, and it's music on the move that really matters

    The Nano is a stunning piece of aesthetic design. Unfortunately like having a Ferrari that's tethered to its favourite petrol station with a steel cable, you're stuck with either iTunes or slightly clunky third party apps to manage your music.

    When Apple announced the iPod touch back in September 2007, our reaction was lukewarm. We'd already used the iPhone and the touch felt like a cut-down version.

    For us, the newly renamed iPod classic is the quintessential iPod, and on sheer value alone, it blows every other iPod out of the water. At the per-gigabyte price of the original iPod, the 160GB model should cost an astonishing £11,168

    The iPod minis with their colourful cases were incredibly popular back in their day, and with the new second generation iPod nanos, it seems things have come full circle - because colours are back

    The baby iPod is style over substance incarnate. That's not necessarily as bad as it sounds: to a lot of people, what their player looks like is genuinely important, as is feeling like they've got something that seems worth the money they spent on it
