From how many approvals I've seen, probanly the apple financing Visa.
What are your scores, how are your reports? Any negs?
I agree, this is one of their close to sub-prime cards but getsyou in the door with them.

+1 Apple Financing. A lot of the approvals come on recon, so call them up after you apply if it's not an instant approval.
Don't be afraid to ask for a larger limit than anything you currently have. When I apped for mine I told the credit analyst I was planning to buy the latest top of the line Macbook Pro and asked for $5000. They gave me $2000, but considering my highest limit at the time was $500, I considered that a solid win.
So they're pretty generous with credit lines, even if you don't get exactly what you ask for.

I would say the apple visa but only because of popularity among posters. I don't really know about their criteria.

Honestly, I don't think Barclays underwirting varies wildly from product to product. I would just pick the one you want and go for it.
They seem to be pretty good about recons from what I've read around here as well
