    Hey, iptf, i am new around here but ive been reading the forums since 2 or 3 weeks. I have a problem considering the ipod touch so im asking for advice. In our country a new Ipod Touch 2G 16GB costs around $350. I was planning on getting one but I saw another offer. It is about used for 1 month (without a scratch barely used) Ipod Touch 16GB 1G for $250 from USA (so no warranty). I have only 260 bucks in me, so I have three options:

    1) Get the first generation one, jailbreak it and be happy. No warranty so if something goes wrong Im boned (like Bender used to say

    2) Save $100 more, get the second generation, wait for the jailbreak and be happy with warranty.
    3) Get the first one, save another 120 bucks while waiting for the redsn0w jailbreak, sell the first one, buy the second.

    I want 16GB not less. So what should I do? Do the $100 worth the 2g with warranty? Thanks in advance!!!

    I would definitely go for option 2), you've got speakers and a warranty then!

    It turned out that the first one has international warranty. I just need to go to the nearest apple shop and they will fix it so the warranty is no problem now. I can save the money in about 2 or 3 weeks, which I can wait. But do the speakers worth it?

    option 2 is your best bet,
    you NEVER know when ur gonna need a warranty

    ps. the speakers arent really for music,
    theyre for casual listening (apps/videos/whatever)

    Thanks guys. I'll go for the 2G. And I am not buying them online (not that I had any bad experience with online buys). The 2G I can get from authorized apple store and the used one from a guy, which I am going to meet. He is from my town, I just found his offer over the internet

    I am only scared about the jailbreak. I love old school console emulators so kinda need my touch jailbroken :S
