    Hi
    My daughter who is Autistic wants an MP4 for Christmas.

    The problem that concerns me, is that she has a tendency to drop things on the floor.

    My concern is with the hard disk. I reckon in a day she would have damaged the hard disk.

    My question is

    What if any MP4 would be suitable for her.

    I would really appreciate any help here

    Cheers
    Les

    Now most of the Mp4/Mp3 players are flash memory instead of hard disk. Flash memory is more durable so that would be a better choice. You could also get a case for it that would give a little more protection. Sandisk and Creative are both good.

    Here are some examples http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...escription=&Ntk=&SpeTabStoreType=&srchInDesc= which will give you an idea, although you live in the UK and can't order from Newegg.

    Flash memory sounds good.

    I have seen an MP4 Media Box Touch that is made in the UK and I think I will go with them. I have had a good chat on the phone with the company.
    Its not slim, but it looks the best I have seen all in all. Here is the link.

    The fact it is in the Uk makes it easy to get repaired. £15 for a screen repair.

    Thanks for helping me to make my mind up Stantley.
