    I'm wondering is I should get it from Amazon, or from Apple.

    I am currently living in [Confidential], in a US Military Base, and I have an APO/FPO Box.

    I was wondering if Amazon shipped to these without a hassle?

    I know apple uses http://www.APOBOX.com/ , but that's some extra fees and takes longer right there.

    The reason I'm still considering Apple is because of their Engrave service, It would be nice to engrace my name on the back of my brand new spanking iPod Touch 4G.

    So, what should I do?

    I'm going to go preorder it later today in about 1 or 2 hours...thanks

    If you want to have your name engraved, get it through Apple.

    Amazon's logo / picture is displayed on APOBOX site, so maybe they do that too.
    EDIT: Amazon, (as other people said) will be a little cheaper, though.

    I'm not sure about how Amazon ships, but I believe all they do is act as a middle-man.

    I went with Apple. I just think that Apple will get it to me fastest. Although with you living out-of-country, and with an APO/FPO box, it may be a hassle. Get on the Apple Chat and ask them what they think. They should be pretty knowleadgable in this field.

    Just go here and click the 'Chat' underneath the Apple Store logo in the top left.

    I'm pretty sure the discount is no longer there anymore

    They redirected me to http://www.APOBOX.com/ xD

    Edit: I'm gonna buy from Amazon.com, they still have the discount up, so I can buy a case, and it'll equal up to about $300 so it's like I got the case for free xD

    Edit Edit: I'm still not ordering till like 2 hours from now so please keep posting what you think ^^

    Anyways yeah get it from Amazon, it's a lot cheaper. And whatever you do, don't get it engraved. Many people think this is a generous act done by Apple, but if you read carefully, once you get an iPod engraved, it can't be returned nor exchanged to the store (you can only get it fixed if something goes wrong). So they're pretty much taking out the return warranty for a 2 second laser engravement.

    I wish Amazon.ca sold iPods, that would be nice....

    EDIT: who took away my quote about Americans and their military? Talk about freedom of speech :S
