    When the 2nd-Gen iPod Touch came out, I bought a refurbished 16GB 1st-Grn model from Apple, along with the Apple Care Plan, which I have never used AT ALL (I've never had any problems that didn't come from my mistakes, like dropping it or going into a pool with it in my pocket; restores have fixed everything for me ALWAYS).

    I now realize that my 1st-Gen is officially outdated, and I think I'll be getting an iPod Touch G4 when it comes out.

    My question is about the warranty. Since 1st-Gen models havent been in production for years, what kind of device would I get back if something ever happened to it? Of course, this is assuming that they couldn't fix it. Do they still have 1st-Gens in an undergroubd bomb shelter so that they never lose any money, or would they hook me up with a refurbished or new 2nd-Gen if there weren't any 1st-Gens left, OR would they just say, "hey, we're Apple, and we have the best customer support EVER, so to prove it to you, we're going to give you a BRAND NEW 3rd-Gen iPod Touch!"

    And since I have a 16GB, it's safe to assume that I'd get that same capacity at minimum, right?

    I'm sure they have 1st gens. If they didn't then they'd fix yours and send it back.

    Yup! It's still valid for at least a couple more months.

    They probably do. I'm still going to ask someone at the Apple store the next time I go there.
