    hi im kinda on a tight budget, so i would like to know which one would you rather choose? an iPod Touch 1st Gen or 2nd Gen iPod Touch? I can get an 1st gen ipod touch for 120-150 for 8gb while i can get a 2nd gen ipod touch for 200-230 for 8gb. So which ONE would you choose?

    see the problem is i don't think i would be able to get it because of the price and i don't really think the 2nd gen is a big difference to the 1st gen. im kinda expecting a big update for the 3rd gen ipod touch.

    Can't really tell you unless you know what you want to do with it.

    1st Gen Pros:
    Jailbreakable
    Cheaper
    Not currently as buggy

    1st Gen Cons:
    No internal speaker
    No external volume control
    Older technology
    Not as sexy (personal opinion

    2nd Gen Pros:
    Speaker
    External volume
    New, faster processor
    Better WiFi connection (supposedly)
    Nike+ (if you are a runner)

    2nd Gen Cons:
    NOT jailbreakable (yet)
    Currently very buggy (In my experience)
    More expensive, even for a used one


    Now this is just a short list, all off the top of my head. You decide.

    Thanks for the pros and cons. I want the 1st gen because i can keep using it until the 3rd gen comes out. I don't wanna hear from my family saying you just bought the 2g and now you want another Etc. you see what I mean? But thanks for ur help =]

    Then why did you even start this thread then?

    Go get the 1g if thats what you can afford.

    It sounds like you have made up your mind and you don't think the 2g is worth it.....so go get yourself a 1g.
