iPod leads PC World
The iPod dominates PC World's list of the , trailing behind Rio's Carbon.
"The Carbon also has a built-in microphone for recording memos or your own singing; the IPods require a third-party add-on for voice recording. The 6GB Mini improves on the price-per-gigabyte ratio of the first Mini, and it claims 18 hours of battery life, more than double the former model's figure. Apple still sells its 4GB unit, which costs $199."
In the large-capacity category, the IRiver H320 placed third. "The third-place IRiver H320 used to be a good deal compared with the IPod Photo; but though IRiver has cut the H320's price since the device first appeared, Apple has reduced prices on IPod Photos more substantially."
