    Hi, I'm about to buy from ebay an iPoT which serial number is "S1C738xxxxxx". I was wondering the meaning of the first digit: the "S". Does anybody have any idea of its meaning? Is that the way apple "marks" the refurbished ones? Or maybe... could it means that the ipod is a second quality one?
    Thanks for your time

    I think it means that its a Super Ipod.

    I don't think they restamp the serial number when refurbishing, and Im almost positive the "S" doesn't mean secondary quality. But I've been known to be wrong before.

    BTW, It's a week 38 Ipod, which is good

    Some week 37's have screen issues; where week 38's are lesser known to problems.
