    I was offered a brand new iPod Touch at my local Apple Center at $100 off the recommended retail price because as i was told from the salesperson, it was from an "earlier batch without the five January updates".

    Some questions i need help with.

    - What are the differences between the earlier and latest versions of the iPod Touch? Are the ports different? Are the wireless speeds faster? What about the software? etc.

    - Are the Ipod Touch(es) with the John Lennon picture on the box guaranteed the "latest version"?

    - I was told to look at the back of the box. If there is a "B" instead of an "A", it means that it is the latest version. May i know whether if it's true?

    - Does it matter that i get an older(earlier) version of the Touch, if i am planning to jailbreak it?


    Thanks a lot for the help, guys!

    I don't think there is.... $100 is a good deal... But make sure you're not getting scammed...
