    Does anyone have a generic version of the Apple Ipod to recommend??

    Granddaughter wants one for Christmas, but I think that's just too much for a 7 year old. [​IMG]
    The features she wants are touch screen, games, voice record, & of course music.

    There are so many different kinds & I'm just lost! [​IMG]

    My room mate had a zune and it was pretty good. Usually cheaper, although similar, to ipods.

    I bought a refurbished IPOD from the Apple web site about 4 years ago and it is still working fine. It was about 1/2 the price if a new one.

    We have gone through 4 generic Ipod type devices and they all were CRAP. My kids are on their 2nd year with Ipod shuffles and they are still going strong. I ENFORCE they keep the covers on to protect them and told them they would not be replaced if they lost them (they guard them with their life, LOL). I am upgrading them to the touch this year because that is the only gift they want and the features are awesome, I just hope they realize they are only opening ONE gift from us this year [​IMG] I see Walmart is offering free accessories with their touches this week for 189.00 I may just order them now while they are still in stock.. Check into the refurbished option that may be a good solution to cost. I also have seen several on Craigslist of the older models that people sell pretty cheap. I forgot to mention our in-laws are going halves with us, what about splitting the cost with the parents or the other set of Grandparents.

    Just so you know, there is a SanDisk touch screen MP3 player on dailydeals for $30. It actually looks like a pretty good one!
