Itouch, New V old

Hi, I'm after some information on the itouchs, what is the difference between the new and old ones? If i could pick up a 16gb old on for £125 would it be worth it , or are the extra gadgets on the new one worth the extra £45 and 8gig less?

Thanks

not much diff to be honest just a slightly diff casing

Thats a good deal, the only thing you would have to do is get the software update to version 2.1, only cost £6 through itunes and you'll get all the new apple apps and the ability to install 3rd party apps a lot of which are free! woo hoo!
I've done the same on my 1st gen 8GB touch. Nice:thumbsup:

Cool, cheers for the information. So other than the speaker on the new one, updating the old one with the latest firmware will give it all the latest functionality and it will pretty much be the same?

Thats what apple sold me, though i've not had chance to install any extra apps yet.

Hmm and external speaker sounds kinda pointless for a personal media player unless...
1 - You have mis-shapen ears and find wearing headphones uncomfortable.
2 - You like to walk round all day and even sit in pizza hut forcing other people to listen to music only you like. True Story.

Wait one minute, just checking on apples site and you get the following amazing features...

1- Nike+ Built in compatability. For help with your training. - Requires an add on for you nike shoes.
2 - An external voume button - TBH this is a great little addition as its a bit of a pain ot get to the volume controls through some menus.
3 - Longer battery life - Meh :? I would expect this really but the life on the old touch is still lasts days for me!

So for me these feature are not worth the price difference. But if :santa: got me a new one i wouldn't complain. :thumbsup:
