    When you add the cost of materials and production and all the other stuff, how much
    would one cost to be manufactured?

    I think it would cost a lot just to build one. Just 150 about regular prices.

    I don't want to make one. I'm just curious.

    You're a douche bag my good sir. I just thought i would start this thread to see how much it would cost to make one in mass manufacturing. Such as a sweatshop in Africa can make a pair of shoes for 5$ and sell them for 100$. I thought it would be nice to have a friendly little discussion, don't be such a little dick. If you have nothing good to say or contribute, please don't say them at all. Thank you, have a nice day

    Well, first off, is it really that big of a deal? No. It isn't.

    Second, it depends on (1.) which generation, and (2.) which storage capacity.

    I'd guess that an iPod touch without any storage (no flash, nothing) is probably around $125-$150.

    Give or take $10 or so...
