    For full digital they all say the Go, since it comes with 16GB flash storage.
    But remember it cannot play UMDs. (a nice choice if you do intend to update to the Vita later on since it is BC with digital stuff)

    Get a 1000,2000 or 3000. I'd only recommended the Go if you're SURE that you're happy with the controls on the thing. Extra memory is easily come by but you can't uncramp/unruin the controls.

    Pretty much this.

    Get a Go only after you've tried it out in person. Buying a Go on impulse is a bad idea.

    All PSPs to my knowledge are hackable now, but preferably a 2000 or 1000.

    I would get Go only if

    * You tried it in person AND
    * You also buy PSPGo stand for TV out. You will need a PS3 controller.

    Be advised that Go uses M2 memory card. You won't have any adapter for this. PSP 1000/2000/3000 have CR-5400 where you can use microSD if you want to be cheap (although I recommend against it, performance is bad and there is a lot of fake CR-5400).

    An iPhone.

    Jailbreaking is a silly term that only applies to iDevices and the PS3...

    Seriously though, I made my voice heard in this regard many times and I'll say the same thing again - PSP-2000, Data Code pre-8B. It has the best specs and the best hacking capabilities.

    1000-series lack RAM (only 32, compared to the 64 on other models) and their Serial Bus is not compatible with most contemporary headsets.
    3000-series and post-8B 2000-series cannot go Perm with 6.20+ firmwares, which isn't such a big issue, but more importantly, they're incompatible with Pandora and thus susceptible to bricking if hacked the wrong way.
    Go-series are pretty good, considering the built-in memory... however as the two above, they're also unPandora'ble for obvious reasons.
    E-1000-series are a disgrace with their lack of Wi-Fi, mono sound and horrible built quality.

    All-in-all, look for a PSP-2000, check its Data Code (under the battery, in the battery compartment) and if it's 8B or earlier, you should go for it. If you will find yourself unable to get one, get a PSP-3000 or a Go - these are the next best things. Avoid the 1000 and E-1000.

    Every PSP is currently hackable, but an older/used 3000 or 2000 would be a little less hassle.
