iPod Questions

OK, I do not have an iPod and know very little about them.

Any recommendation on which to get? What size? Does it have to be an Apple brand?


How does one get the music from their CD's to the iPod? Can you choose certain songs or is it the whole CD? Does that cost $$$?
Is high speed internet needed?

Can you download individual songs? From where? How much?


Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

I recommend the relatively new-ish iPod Classic. It comes in both 80 GB and 160 GB, and plays video as well as music. Download iTunes. It is free, and so is importing CDs. High speed internet isn't necessary but couldn't hurt. You can download individual songs straight from the iTunes store for $1 each.

To avoid overspending, I'd say that 80GB is probably more than enough unless your music collection is extremely insanely large and/or your decide to rip CD's at like 5000kbps.

Edit: Also if you want to look into other brands that aren't Apple, Creative has a pretty damn good line of mp3 players available. Other than that Brad pretty much nailed it.

Yeah, I have an 80 and even with like 8 hours of video and countless weeks of music am well under 40 used. I'll go to a 160 after college probably.

Eh. That's very little room. My brother has one and even his modestly sized music collection won't fit.

80 GB is $250. That seems the more logical choice to me.
