What does the GB mean?

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
I am not familiar with iPods and the like but I would like to purchase one as a gift, and I have a question.
Is there any difference between the 8GB, 32GB and 64GB iPods apart from how many things you can save to it? Does getting more compromise anything else or is the only reason people would buy a smaller number because of cost?
Thank you.

GB is gigabyte...some people buy smaller gb's because they don't need a lot of space (aren't into gaming or a lot of apps...don't have huge libraries,etc). Some do it to save money upfront. If you choose a smaller GB device and later decide you need more room you can't do anything about it except purchase a larger capacity iPod. It's more about convenience...are you willing to sync more often and not have a large amount of a massive library on your iPod at all times (for those that have large collections of course) or do you prefer having everything on you just in case you are in the mood to hear or see something and can't immediately sync with your computer to add it. It's all a personal choice. For me, more space in the iPod Touch format was something I wanted so I have a 64 GB. For my mother, the smaller capacity was more than enough.
