    Hi,
    I am getting a 32gb touch in early november but need to get a refurbished one (otherwise i will only have enough money for a 16gb) Does anybody know how long it takes apple to start selling products refurbished?

    I guess i could try and save up an extra 100 bucks or so if not. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    That doesn't really answer the question.

    I don't know for sure, but my best guess would be in around a month and a half, depending on the reliability of these new models. Correct me if I'm wrong, it's just a guess.

    Thanks, i know someone who bought a refurb 2g nano a while ago and it was brand new. It would be great to be able to save some money if they came out in time

    Anybody else got a vague idea? How long does it usually take for a new ipod to be made available refurbished?

    Apple will start having Refurb iPod Touch 2Gs in November, i would think. The refurb 8GB 2G (which is what I will get) will probraby be around $180.

    Oh, how much do refurbished 32 GB go? (Based on 16 GB from last model's priced at the same.)

    And are these refurbs in PERFECT condition always? Like, replaced completely with new? Or will they have evidence of some use?

    I know somebody who got a refurbished ipod and it was as new, no scratches or anything. As far as I can tell the only difference is the packaging. I might not be as keen on a touch off ebay because the apple refurbs come with the same 1 year warranty.

    Based on previous refurbs, you will probably get the 32gb for $349, 16gb for $249 and 8 gb for $179.

    I've purchased refurbs before and they were like brand new. Apple replaces the entire case and gives it a new serial #.
