    A friend wants to sell me his unopened 1st generation touch for $200. Is it worth it or should I get the 2nd gen for $300? I really like the external speaker and volume controls, but are they really worth it. I ride motorcycles alot and think the external volume controls will be easier to use. Let me know your thoughts

    The external speaker will not even make a sound if you're riding a motorcycle, let alone be enjoyable.

    Plus, 1G is jailbroken.

    He said external volume control.. not the speaker..
    It would be easier to control the volume if he had external volume controls.

    $200 for a 1g isn't that bad.. but just know that 2g will be jail broken.. one day..

    2G.

    I'll get an 8GB 2G before a 16GB 1G.

    If you mod a lot 2G, if not 1G.

    But if you can buy a 2G, go for it.

    2G is just better.

    You can definitely get a used 1st-gen iPod touch for less than $200 now.

    i would imagine if you went riding frequently that you would most probably need the sound up full to get an kinda picture of what is playing because of other noise. which would kinda remove the purpose of the volume control switch.
    I would go the new 2g ipod though, because of the possibility of blue tooth in the future and the fact it has an external speaker and controls (gotta be better to use this ipod touch as an alarm

    It really depends do you have a 100 bucks extra to spend? If not the 1g Ipod will still do the job....

    I'd do it. $200, and you get a jailbreakable Touch with just as much functionality as a 2G.

    All the 2G has over the 1G is the speaker (useless to you), and the volume controls. Which, as pointed out above, will also be useless, as you'll have the volume maxed when on your motorcycle anyway.
