Thinking of buying my daughter an MP3 player as a gift & I know nothing about them so I'm looking for help. I'm looking to spend around $100. I hear that on the Apple Ipod's that the batteries only last a few years before you have to have them replaced. Is this true? plus none of the Ipod's have a built-in FM radio. Also I'm not looking for something that will hold 100s of songs but something with good battery play time, decent sound, easy to understand & operate & can be used as an introduction to MP3 Recording & Playback. So which MP3 player in the $100 range would you buy? Thanks.
