Given a choice, I’ll choose Sony or Apple, Sony for the simple reason that they are into audio technology, and not to mention the build quality, which is very reliable. I had a Sony CD Burner that I used for 6 years, it out-survived my computer. Same goes with my other Sony products.

As for Apple, it is because of the apps. The only reason I won’t choose the Apple iPod Touch is because of the lack of FM Radio. I am not a big fan of Samsung, I had 2 CD player and it broke after 1 year, same goes with my other 2 Samsung monitor. It is as if they engineered their product to fail after the warranty period expires.
