    If you're worried about the 1st-gen iPod touch not performing well with games, I wouldn't worry. I have a 1st-gen iPod touch and every game I have from the App Store, including Cube which is pretty intensive, run fine.

    1G users will recommend the 1G, 2G users will recommend the 2G. No offense meant to anybody of course, that's just how it is.

    If you really need the space and you really can't wait for the jailbreak, you can always just get the 1G. I went with the 2G because I just thought that it felt better in my hand. It's all opinion.

    I agree with rafarquhar, i personally like the 1g better because it is currently jailbreakable so it has more applications, i also like it that the screen doesn't have the yellowish tint. Also the 1g is .5 mm thinner, it is a fact from the apple.com tech specs.

    So to sum it up, i personally would go with the 1g.
