If you plan on doing any physical activity with it then I'd go with a nano, probably a 4 gig. They are nearly indestructible, whereas the photo and video models tend to shut off or skip if you do some heavy running.
I have both a 4 nano and a 30 gig photo. All I use the photo for now is in the car/truck, xbox360 or when I go out of town to store photos on. You can plug it into an adapter and a digital camera to pull the files off just like a PC would.
They also offer the shuffle models. They are CHEAP and nearly bullet proof. However they are limited to a 1 gig hard drive and don't have a display.
Apple should be coming out with a new model ipod very soon. I'm guessing it's going to be a full screen video player with bluetooth built in as well as wireless headphones. If you can hold out the newest one is always better than the old model.
No fast cars though
