Can buy a 1st gen 16gb for $200(new in box) or 2gen for $300. What do you ipod touch owners think? I have never owned a touch or even messed with one. From what I have read the only difference is the external speaker and volume controls, but are they really worth it? I ride motorcycles a lot so I think the external volume controls would be great for that, but like I said I have never owned one so dont know how easy it would be to change volume on 1st gen.
