    ... so I saw the thread about the screen problems with certain ipod touch series... I'm gonna be careful and paranoid as I don't have that much money left after the xmas/ny.

    Has there been any problems with the screen apart from the ones from week 36-37?

    I saw two left at a store nearby (with a big discount so I have to be quick)... one with serial no. 9c757xxxx, but with another digit behind '57'... week 57 makes no sense I suppose, so what does it mean? The other one has 9c745xxxx, I presume that means week 45.

    So which is the newer version or are both fine?

    i would say 40 and up are completely safe but thats not true, ive heard some people had wk 34 which were still fine but many in the 30's had to take them back, as of now i have not of any 50 wk & up with defect screens so i assume thats a good option, for me i have a 44 wk (for christmas) & not problems whatsoever, but thats just my 2 cents.

    One more thing, I'm a total noob. I just opened my ipod, and it shows me this image and a usb cable. Do I have to register the ipod first to get a menu screen???

    No, plug it into iTunes and it will give the option to register now or register later.

    Yeah I have 1.1.1, it's giving me the option to update it to 1.1.2... so 1.1.2 is unstable/crap then?

    Well, are you planning on Jailbreaking?
