Best case scenario it's exactly like brand new, but because its been opened and used they can't legally sell it as new. Worst case scenario theres enough marks to show its been in someones pocket at some point before it was returned, but is otherwise like new.

If you mean the 2nd generation Touch, then they've made the profile a little slimmer and added hard volume buttons on the side. It also comes preloaded with the 2.1 software enabling genius and the other recent stuff. Other than that it's the same.

They also have an external speaker, unless I'm recalling incorrectly, though I've heard that the speaker's a bit rubbish.

You can play games on any iPod Touch, just if it was one of the very first that came out before the app store you need to upgrade the firmware for £5.99. I would guess though that these refurb units will have the 2.0 firmware so you don't need to pay for the upgrade.
#13
"Original price: £329.00"

Do bear in mind that the price of a 2nd Gen 32GB touch is actually £289.00

See Apple store.

For the record the new iPods come loaded with 2.1 as standard, for the original ipod touch it costs £5.99 to upgrade to 2.1 unless you already paid for 2.0 in which case it costs nothing.

However if you have not yet paid for the update to 2.X then I would not recommend at all that you clik on the link below and read the instructions on how to download the upgrade to 2.0 for free and then update to 2.1 for free ;-)

http://www.sizlopedia.com/2008/07/12/how-to-update-ipod-touch-to-firmware-20-for-free/

How cheeky are apple, all the firmware updates for iPhones are free and for ipods cost cash. Not right in my opinion...
#15
Apparently it's a legal thing in the US. They are required to charge for the firmware updates because it does something... I forget what... I'm going to have to find my citation again :)

Also, voted hot because apple [and dell] refurb shops are great. I bought a mac mini last week for £310 inc vat. Cheaper than ebay! (I would have had to buy leopard if I got one from ebay)

Not true.

There are 3 different options.

1st Gen Touch that came out last year = 1.0 firmware (must pay £5.99 to upgrade to 2.1)
1st Gen Touch after the app store came out this summer = 2.0 firmware (free to upgrade to 2.1)
2nd Gen Touch that came out last week = 2.1 firmware

I seriously doubt that Apple would be selling refurb iPods without the latest firmware, and the latest firmware for the original 1st Gen Touch is version 2.0.

Either way, you are incorrect to suggest that all old ipod touches need to pay a fee, only those that came out before the summer do.

Here in the USA, the iPod Touch 32GB is $399. That's £224 - what we pay in the UK for a new 16GB touch more or less (at a rate of 1.78). Shows how much of a rip-off Britain is. (Bear in mind that the 8GB touch is only £10 cheaper in the US too).
#18
The new touch has the nike software and transmitter built in to it and the battery life maybe better, though I'm not 100% sure if that's just the new firmware.

Also the new microphone headset should work with the 2nd gen touch with the possibility of using voip software to make calls.

Well... half the story is in their accounting policies (attached to their annual accounts, fascinating read I can assure you. What's that, you're just going to take my word? Well, just in case you change your mind, here's the link: http://media.corporate-ir.net/media_files/irol/10/107357/reports/AAPL_10K_FY07.pdf)

Basically, they don't plan to charge for updates to iPhone or AppleTV because they suggested upfront that there'd be updates to these products along the way. Therefore they recognise their sales and cost of sales over a 24-month period - i.e. that iPhone you just bought? The full effect of that sale isn't recognised for another 2 years, and that isn't just limited to any kickbacks they get from the phone networks. They'll put 1/24th of sales revenue and 1/24th of cost of sales through on a monthly basis. This is because they reckon that's the useful life of the product, and they reckon (or hope) that you'll buy another when that period ends.

However for the Touch, and pretty much anything else in the Apple camp, if there's a major upgrade then you've got the choice of either paying for it or not adopting it - they've not promised major updates for these things (unlike the iPhone), after all.

I think, from reading between the lines, that it comes down to functionality. Is the new release adding something different? That would be like where we got Google Maps etc, or the app store. Or is it a minor tweak, to refine something that's already there and should have worked the first time around - like the 2.1 firmware that's just come out.

I'm not happy with all this - I'm one of the idiots that pays for these upgrades and then wonders what the point really was - but I can see the distinction... even if I don't agree with it!! :x

Yep - I paid for the first upgrade because I thought the mail app would be worth having (it's not - I prefer to use gmail in safari), and I thought the app store would be worth having (it's not - most of the apps are very poor quality and/or a waste of time).

Will I pay for the next upgrade? Probably... :oops:

You forgot to add an average sales tax on top of the $399 to get a true US price or you forgot to deduct 17.5% VAT from the UK price to make the net price comparison fairer.

Or you could order whatever you want from Amazon.com, pay with your UK Credit Card, and get it delivered to your hotel and you'll not be charged any tax at all.

Well that's what I do anyway.

Is this true??? Any more specific details would be great - I'd love to have an ipod touch that I could use for internet access - from (almost) anywhere.

In Delaware, there is zero state tax or VAT. Same in PN (for clothes and food?) if I recall.

And yes, you can have it delivered to your hotel too - almost any good retailer will do this for you. Another tip is for shopping at Macy's, declare that you are from out of state with proof (passport, drivers licence etc) and you can get an extra 11% off your purchases. Worked both here in Delaware and also in New York.
