Yeah, but the portability is awesome. I mean it's perfect if you just want to quickly check Facebook or something.

I agree. I think it's very cool, I just wish the capacity was higher. Still 16GB is more than enough for my songs but I would like some extra space for videos and all. I like the fact there's no monthly fee with it, it has wifi, it looks cool, and it's also priced pretty reasonably considering all that it has on it. Still a bit more than I want to spend, but compared to the iphone it's a bargain.

well how much is the 16 gb version????i think i would just rather have the classic because i have a laptop and i can check facebook on the go already...................plus when u have a ipod your usually working out or doing something while listing too it.........and cell phones are also good at checking things online too on the go, i just wouldent cough up the cash for the ipod touch.

Yeah, if you think about it $300 is really a lot of money. I'm saving up for a car, and $300 extra can go a long way...maybe for Christmas or something. I don't have a laptop, and even if I did, I wouldn't carry it around with me.

I agree though, with videos 16GB will be gone fast.

As for the iPhone, it's twice as expensive, holds half the content, and costs AT LEAST $60/month in addition to the outrageous original price.

EDIT - Those prices are in CAD just so everyone knows. It's $300 USD for the Touch.
Yeah, the ability to surf wirelessly is somewhat of a selling point for me but I still think 8-16GB for that outrageous price isn't good enough. I'd love to be able to visit websites like Facebook at school, so I might consider waiting for the second generation iPod Touch. Good choice or not?

The iPod Touch is lame. I'd rather pay an extra $100 or so and get a nice Archos 604 WiFi or 704 WiFi. Bigger storage capacity, bigger screen, great interface and awesome quality (as to be expected from Archos).

Not sure. Depends how much I can save up in the next ~2 years. My parents will hopefully pay for a bit too, and I'm gonna be starting up 2 jobs this fall. I already have about $1,000...

I could probably get an older used Mustang. A ton of people have Mustangs though, so I don't know. I love the Infiniti G35s. Nothing in my price range is really out of the question though...

Oh wow they added a touch to the i pod and about 100 on to the price , wow i am realy gonna rush out and buy one
I got an I pod video 30Gb and TBH if i where to be in the market for another MP3 player i would definatly shop around more than i did with this one as it dosent do anything special that i havent seen other MP3 players do tbh and some players for less money have better battery life than this . If i where truthley honest i just got this cos i wanted the apple brand name but now i realised that it does nothing other players cant and some at less cost but better quality

300 is a bit high for me. I might use that money towards a laptop, and then buy an ipod classic. Still I think 16GB for something like that is pretty good capacity, especially considering the iphone is 500+ and has less storage capacity, as well as monthly fees and contracts.
