Do you mean ipod or mp3 player?
Ipods can only be used with itunes. so if that's what you have, get an ipod.
An mp3 player is the same thing, but doesn't require the MAC program like an ipod does.
They are all pretty much the same, but phillips, or sony is always a good bet.
Also you want to think of how many songs do you want? So check how many GBs (gigabytes) of storage space. The more, the better, roughly you can put 400 songs per GB. Depends on how long the songs are...also some mp3 players, like ipod nano, can hold videos too, even full length movies. And the battery life is pretty good, too. Most have internal memory storage, and some have external, or removable memory storage, like memory cards. All depends on your taste.
Hope this helps!
