    Ok well I've been following the event that happened earlier today and I was hoping, like so many other people, that the 3rd generation of Ipod touch would have some major changes. Mainly that the 16 gig would be cheaper, but unfortunately that's not the case. So since I don't want to settle for an 8 gig and I don't need a 32 gig I'm thinking about buying the 16 gig from the 2nd generation. I keep hearing about firmware and having to pay for it or something like that so I'm wondering if I'm gonna have to download any kind of extra software for it? I really just want the Ipod Touch for music, pictures and the wi-fi. Nothing complicated as I'm just a college student. So if anyone can provide some info on anything else I need to get for it please let me know.

    Dude, the refurbs are $199 from Apple for the 16GB. I'd buy that if I were you.

    And the firmware upgrade is only $5 if it doesn't have 3.0 on it and free if it does.

    Yeah I know but they are selling the 16 gig at Amazon for 243 dollars on Amazon. Thats like 50 dollars less and I can afford that. And plus I dont need the 32 gigs. Im more than good with 16. Thanks tho.

    Are refurbished ones really as good as the new ones. I always get paranoid about that.

    From Apple, they are. I have bought them before in the past and they work and look exactly like new. Plus, they have the same one year warranty.

    A refurb from Apple is fine. The outer shell is replaced, as is the battery, and it comes with the same 1 yr warranty.

    Ok, this is what happened to me when I just bought the 2nd gen touch 32gb.

    Bought and it wasn't uptodate.

    Had to go to the store and buy the $15 iTunes card. Spent $10 to update it.

    But it was well worth it.

    It had like a lot of new features. It messed somethings up at first, but they fixed them I think in the new one.

    Like the snapshots werent working, but last night it did for me, but this morning no, so its been kinda on and off for me.
