    I went to my local apple satr and was about to go pick up an 8gb yesterday for what I thought would be $199 but the tag still said $229.

    I asked and the guy there told me that the $199 ones will be in tomorrow. Is it aesthetically different if they couldn't just sell me that 2G cheaper?

    Well, I alot of people think they are same! and thats what Apple mentioned! Dont worry! They are same by EVERYONE!

    BUt not by me!
    The battery life of 8 GB has changed to match 64 and 32 GB! Which is ODD! (30 Hours music from 36 Hours Music).
    The height has 0.1 some difference!
    Bestbuy and all online store list those 2 models differently.
    8 GB 2nd Gen is cheaper price than $199.99
    8 GB 3rd Gen (2.5) is $199.99.

    I dont know but something is fishy here! ?

    From what I heard the $199 8GB is exactly the same as the 2nd gen. In fact it is the 2nd gen only with price cut.

    nothing has been changed with the 8gb, only the price. battery life is still the same. apple listed it as having the same battery life as the more expensive models for marketing reasons.

    Actually, I don't think the battery life and the dimensions for the 8GB have changed. On Wikipedia (inb4 unreliable), it only lists the 32 and 64GB models as having 30 hours whilst the 8 still has 36. And it says that the 2nd and 3rd have the same dimensions.

    That really sucks about the battery life, though. :/

    they are not the same. the new ones ($199) have a newer processor.
