    *Price does not matter

    Hi, I am going to buy an iPod Touch; however, I am unsure if I should get the 2g or 1g Touch. I want to be able to jailbreak my Touch, yet I would have to get the 1g, and miss out on the features of the new one. So I am wondering if jailbreaking is worth getting the old Touch, for is there really that big of a difference? Also, any idea when the jailbreak for the 2g will come out, for if it soon I will just get the 2g. Thanks for your help.

    I was faced with the same decision, I ended up getting the 2G. It has way better features and the app store has been fine for me so far. And if a jailbreak ever comes you'll be kicking yourself that you got this old outdated 1G.

    Exactly what lszanto said. If a 2G jailbreak ever does come down the road you'll be upset that you purchased an old 1G. Jailbreaking is really for customizing your iPod touch, like themes, and for applications that are denied from the App Store because they interfere with another application or like I said just above, customize your iPod in some way. If you're not too worried about missing out on those features then get a 2G.
