    I have to get a ipod touch soon and cant decide between 1G and 2G

    1G Pros-Jailbreak, Thinner
    1G Cons-Low Battery Life, No speaker, Smaller processor

    2G Pros-Speaker, Bigger Battery, Bigger Processor
    2G Cons-No jailbreak, thicker

    Can anyone come up with some more?

    How can you say the 2G is thicker? Am I missing something here?

    It's only thicker by 0.02 inches, almost nothing.
    BTW: Get 2G, it's better and lighter.

    1G - 0.31 in.
    2G - 0.33 in.

    my lil bro got a 1g and I got to 2g, if you put both of them together side by side, you will see that the 2g isn't thicker than the 1g! You think it's thicker cause it curvy... but put the two together and you will see that 1g is thicker. And my brother was asking me why mine is faster. lol its a lot faster than the 1g and it got a build in speaker, so its fun when you play game, listen to music or watch movies! Oh yeah, i tried both and 2g is lighter than 1g. I LOVE MY IPOD. LOL

    what you guys are not considering is jailbreak thats whats holding me back from a 2G.

    You dont really have a large choice.
    There isn't any new 1g's left anymore. (I acturally purchased a 16GB 1g iPod Touch but i got a 16GB 2G iPod Touch instead for the price of a 8GB

    But the main problem is that if you really BADLY want to use jailbreaking now and dont want to take the risk of never going to get a jailbreak then your only choice is a second hand iPod Touch.

    I suggest getting the 1G until the 2G is jailbroken. The 1G is better for now in my opinion.
