That's a great price for a 64gb Ipod Touch,i was after a 160gb Ipod Classic but they're hard to get hold of now new,in 2 minds whether to go for this instead!

Voted hot!

Must be Atlantic outlets only

Remember this is the older model, not the 4G with retina display and 2 cameras.

seems a very good price

Im a chav and iPod was my invention.

Now serisouly for those serious about sound I recommed Cowon and Hifiman music players. I used to be an iPod fan just like you because I didnt know any better. But you dont have any excuse now.

Don't forget to add this code which knocks £3 off it, making it £176

It's only 3 quid but it's better in your pocket than in HMV's

Great price, paid this a few years ago for my 1st gen 16gb model

Remember you can use skype video calling with the latest gen, 8th for about £160 at amazon

Ipod Touch 4G is streets ahead of this, if only for the Retina Display

Pity the latest Cowon players are so buggy. D3 and X7 looked very interesting but far too many issues.

Its a good price a lot less than I paid for my nearly full 32gb. So hot for that reason.

However, its likely they'll stop supporting the 3G in around 6 months (when you consider 2G support ended prior to ios 4.2) but you'll still get a lot of fun out of it. So many apps for 59p its insane.

ive had mine for well over a year and i love it - retina display my bumcheeks you cant tell me it makes £100 of difference.

64gb is the biggest ipod tough you can get and if you like lots of music and apps and vids like me, then 64gb is the smallest i could ever handle.

id rather get a 4g with the a4 chip, double the RAM, 2 cameras and a much higher res screen.

8gb is plenty for me.

I bought the 64Gb for the Wife at Christmas. It's great, but very few docking stereo systems accept it as it has a tapering case. Doesn't let the docking connector go far enough in!

Yup, good price but if i had to chose id spend it on the 4th gen, theres quite alot of differences, camreas, hd recording, better display, better processor.

Thanks for the entry. Ordered. Have been scanning E bay for ages waiting to get a 64GB for this sort of money - you will not get a better deal than this for a 3g 64GB. Very happy to make do with a 3G at this price.

totally understand this being a low price for this mp3 player... but isnt it far too much in the first place to pay for an mp3 player?
i paid about £120 for an 8gb 1st gen over 3 years ago, this 3rd gen isnt an awful lot different in terms of featurs. if your gonna be paying the best part of 200 quid on one, get a 4th gen not an old one.

yubious

Comes down to capacity, you need another 60% to get the same capacity in the 4g, and 8gb certainly wouldn't be any use to me. This is substantially better than the 1g, clearly the 4g has more toys but not worth 60% from my outlook.

As for it being too much for an mp3 player, I once paid more than this for a cassette walkman. It was a damn fine one but nonetheless...

Is this likely to happen?

I only ask as i'm new to the Ipod range,never owned one and wanted an Ipod Classic but they're hard to get hold of new and at a reasonable price,i'm thinking of getting this but don't want to buy something that won't be supported by Apple after a few months.

What support are you looking for?

I just meant general support with firmwares and that,i haven't bought one yet but was put off a bit by that comment about the support for 3rd gen ipods ceasing in a few months.

you're worried about the support for a fairly new touch, but were looking to buy an old classic?

am I missing something? oO

Not at all,i was originally after the classic which is more for music and video,the touch is more advanced with apps and stuff.

Not sure what "and that" means.

Quite possible that firmwares could cease with the 5g although it might depend on whether it's powerful enough to run ios 5.0.

It'll still do all it can now regardless so not finding it a major issue myself.

I can see your point,with everything you buy there's always something newer around the corner which will be better supported,i was just being a bit cautious before spending my hard earned money!
Thanks for your help,it's much appreciated

It happens to all the generations eventually, the support for the iphone 3g is already gone (iphone 3gs is still going) as it can't take ios 4.3. The ipod touch 3g can use 4.3 and it is possible it will work with ios 5.0 but no-one knows for certain.

Personally I don't worry about these things (just bought an Ipad 1 which they believe will be supported for 18m max) as new features aren't usually that great and if it does what you want now new ios will make little difference to you.

Thanks for the advice,very much appreciated,you're right about the support,i was just being cautious,as long as it does what i want if for,music,games etc then i'll be happy with it,looking forward to getting it now,just ordered it

Now to find a case and screen protector!

I can see yours too, and I've not yet pulled the trigger on this.

It does pretty much all I want and with enough space for my current mp3 collection, but the currently much worse supported Cowon's I mentioned on first page are still holding me back slightly as I'm sure I'll miss the sound quality.

I've been almost hoping it'd go out of stock lol

Support can be a joke with Apple. I have an old 1st gen itouch and it still works fine until you add a pop address to the mail. Every app closes within 2 seconds of opening, cannot read any mail be it pop address of web (yahoo, google etc). After being told you do not even get any pointers from Apple, you have to take it to an 'Apple genius' and to repair, they want over £300. Now, considering it only cost £220 that really is a laugh. No more Apple products for me.

Hope you make the right choice,i decided to bite the bullet and order one,i've dithered in the past and missed out on some great deals,here's hoping it stays in stock until you decide!

Hehe, I have just succumbed and bought an ipod touch 32gb 4g for my daughter after years of refusing anyting Apple in my house because she was insistent - What has happened, I have spent two days and nine phone calls to Apple support just trying to get the ipod recognised in Itunes as it wont install any drivers etc. Going round in circles with support and now realise why I refused Apple products in the house for years. Only options are to return it for refund or trek into town to Apple store and see what they can do there. So frustrated.
Edited by: "Copperface" 11th Mar 2011

That does too.

ALRIGHT:

8GB doesn't have a 3G, it's just a re-packaged 2G.

This 64GB includes backgrounds and a 2010 speed upgrade.

Although, TBH, if you want your ipod as a pocket computer, buy a new one. If you want it for music, buy the iPod Classic or a different music player.

This is a good balance between the two I suppose.

It doesn't recognise in iTunes? There was a really easy fix for that, but I can't remember it...

Bit of a newbie to Ipod's, does 3g mean I can connect to the internet anywhere on the go and for free ?

Lol, no ipod has free internet, only wifi which can be used with a established connection. there are ways of using the net such as apple peel, but it ruins the looks of the phone. Basically, an ipod, is a iphone, bar the phone features and other minor tweeks such as display. Otherwise a ipod is as good as a iphone. The internet problem is abit of a problemo though, but no, 3g means 3rd generation.
