    Hey guys.. I'm new to buying iPods and also to this site.
    I have a little problem, I'm not sure what to get!
    I could get a refurbished 16GB 1st gen iPod Touch for $239.00 with free shipping, no engraving.
    OR
    I could get a new 8GB 2nd gen iPod Touch for 259.00 with free shipping, free engraving.

    Also, do the refurbed 1st gens come with update 2.0?
    Also, are 1st gens able to go to the app store, play games, and stuff?

    Thanks.
    I know I sound stupid asking these questions.

    Also, the 2nd gen can't be jailbroken (yet), so might be something to watch for.

    Thanks for your replies, but I still want some more feeback!
    Let's have a vote, if you think I should get the 1st gen, then say "1G!" and if you want the 2nd gen, then say "2G!"
    Thanks.
