    Currently about half of the listed "4th gens" on ebay aren't even 4th gens. They are mistitled 3rd gens, scams, or way overpriced real 4th gens.

    Amazon dot com is your ticket to a good early price on the new 4th gen. Currently as of this morning you can preorder it for less than apple sells. 8GB is 223 shipped, 32GB is 288 shipped, 64GB is 384 shipped.

    I am a student and have Amazon Prime so I receive free shipping on most items on amazon so I can't vouch for the free shipping in your case.

    Amazon is reliable as well (and cheaper, too).

    Why on earth are you going to use ebay for pre-orders? You get them even faster from apple because on ebay you have to WAIT for them to actually ship it and dont always get a tracking number.

    amazon sells the new touch with NO TAX and FREE SHIPPING.

    Great deal. It wont climb much lower anywhere else for at least a few weeks.

    amazon is a great place to order things from, even IDevice's. I have ordered things from there before.

    What I don't get: Why would you pay more for a device from a sketchy source than paying less for it on the official website?
