    I have no idea why people talk about the 8gig being a waste of money.....I have a 8gig and i own a lot of ipods/touches. Really I can't see spending like 300+ on a 32 or 64. I'd never be able to fill that up!

    Well, I guess with the 32GB, the limit of capacity is farther away than with the 8GB, so on long flights or drives you can put all the movies you have on there and watch them, while with 8GB you will have filled up everything in 4-5 Movies. (Thats mainly why I went from 8GB 2G to 32GB 4G) And of course, because now I extremely expand my music collection.

    If you truly, absolutely don't need more than 8GB then OK, sure. But I think most of us use the extra space.

    Basically, you're paying 3x as much per GB compared to the 32GB or nearly 5x compared to the 64GB. It's just bad value.

    No offense, but that makes me chuckle. $230 is fine but $300 (Soooo much more

    I got mine from apple and it shipped to me it was 245. If it's 300 i'd have ended up paying 350ish...

    And I don't think anyone that buys a ipod is strapped for cash. Just saying when you add all the taxes and shipping (IF you choose to get one shipped).....

    I think they're just bashing it cause of the price. I've read on here and some other places stating that for that price for an 8gb, apple should've just made it a 16gb. I think 8gb is enough for a lot of people even it if its JB. But i think why 8gb is bashed is because of its price cause for that price, apple should've just made it 16gb and got rid of the 8gb or lower the price for the 8gb models.

    it's good, but instead of putting, for example, a full season of lost on, you can only put a few episodes. And you actually have to watch your space. But 64 gb is a little excessiv IMHO
