    I can get a "New in box" 1st Gen 16gb for $200 or buy the 2nd Gen for $300. I have never owned a touch or used one before. What do you touch owners think I should do? I like the idea of the speaker and volume controls on the outside(for riding my motorcycle), but are these features really worth $100? I have heard good and bad reviews about those 2 features

    i'd go for the 2nd gen, the speakers are good for "casual listening" and the shape and design are better so if you're gonna spend $200 why not $300, you might regret later if you don't do it, also if you wanna jailbreak it, you should go for the 1st gen

    I Agree look at it this way.

    If you want the latest and greatest. And portability Get the 2G.

    If you just want an "iPod Touch" Then get the 1G.

    Trust me You will end up buying both.

    Also.

    The only new thing the 2G has is the buttons the shape.

    And some other features.

    So basically your getting the same thing.

    the speaker ain't a car sound system, you probably won't hear anything on your motocycle

    Why do we have this question asked twice a day?
