mmm....padded walls....so soft...
The Ipod uses a solid state hard drive. Solid state hard drives use flash memory rather than mechanical drives for weight and size reasons. They are less effected by sudden changes in G-force (e.g. when you drop it), but are more effected by temperature extremes and only have a limited number of write cycles.

So both descriptions are technically correct, but the one stating hard drive only is more correct as they're not as easy to upgrade/swap out as the flash memory for a mobile or digital camera. In fact if they're like the 1st gen nano the memory modules are soldered direct to the PCB.

[EDIT]Actually on double checking the touch does use flash memory as storage, not solid state hard drives.[/edit]

they are both for the touch, which doesnt use a hard drive.

the 32gb model is over £300 on the Apple website, so to get one for £250 would be a bargain.
