    2G iPod touch
    Ok, I'm looking at buying an 8GB iPod touch. I can buy the 8GB 1st generation for £128 from Argos brand new, or should I get the 2G touch which is an extra £41 which makes it £169.

    Is it worth spending the £40 extra on the 2G? Or should I just save £40 and get the 1st generation?

    Thanks, Butler.

    I'd go for a 1st gen to be honest, I've never felt compelled by the 2nd gen.

    A jailbreak for the 2G will hopefully get here eventually. If you're not jailbreaking, definitely get the 2G.

    If I just use music and I don't fiddle with the screen much, I can get ridiculously awesome battery life.

    Thats just fairly ridiculous to recommend to someone to buy old technology just because your stuck with it.

    Lets all buy last years motherboards, ram and CPU's etc because hey....there older, so they have to be better than all this new fangled NEW TECHNOLOGY.
