    So I was searching around in a few topics and read some posts saying the "iTouch 8GB 3rd gen model" is really just an updated 2nd generation using the same processor. While the 32gb and 64gb versions are the models that have the faster processor.

    So I was looking around at best buy and found this - http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Apple&#...lack/8771732.p?skuId=8771732&id=1204332006293

    Is this 3rd gen with the faster chip? How can you tell the difference between the two?

    Thank you.

    Edit - Appears the bestbuy link is not working. But it's the iTouch on the bestbuy website that says "Apple® - iPod touch® 8GB* MP3 Player (3rd Generation) - Black"

    Aren't the third generations supposed to have a faster chip though? (For a minor speed increase)

    I didn't think any features were added though.

    Best Buy always puts that it's a 3rd Gen, unlike other stores.
