Bought one for my daughter. It is an awesome piece of hardware. In case anyone is wondering, this version cannot be jailbroken at this time.

Edit: I stand corrected. I hadn’t followed the blog for a while. Thanks for the heads up everyone.

Seriously, there are a jillion reviews for this on Alatest. And they’re all good. Obviously.,287/

Awww man… I could have sworn that was an iphone at first glance, lol.

;-p But seriously, this really isn’t too bad of a deal. Refurbished just means somebody else found a problem with it or tested it thoroughly to break it and now it’s brought back stronger.

Blah… refurb…

Edit, itouch, not iphone… -_-

Edit#2, NEW on ebay for $180 w/ free shipping… I really don’t like refurbs.

FYI, Apple has this for $30 more and you get a full year warranty.

I recently got my ipod stolen from my house, so this is perfect and affordable. Apple sells the same thing for $229

What? Warranty from Apple?
Seriously, Woot? I’m surprised. How’d you do that?

Is the touchscreen any good on this unit? Or is it flakey like some other touch screens?

The 2nd Gen has speakers, right?
That is the only thing I don’t like about mine. I’m thinking of going ahead and switching them out.

how much are these new nowadays?

If I wasn’t about to sell my iPhone for the new ones that’re coming this summer…

Refurb Apple products are nothing to be afraid of, though. I’ve had my refurb Macbook for almost 3 years now, and it still runs like a champ! This’d be a good investment for anyone who missed the expensive train the first time around.

Is the wi Fi any good?

I already have an iPod Touch. I love it. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

Indeed, I would feel safer just buying this straight from Apple.

Also, this generation is almost Jailbroken (or whatever you call it), but it’s not a true public release just yet (last time I checked).

It can be jailbroken as of about a week ago.

…It’s just wifi. I’m going to assume it’s as good as on any other laptop or wifi-capable device.

One Last thing, would this work with slacker radio if you used it via wi-fi? I know slacker works with my blackberry, but it makes me wonder if it works with my blackberry, maybe I could download slacker for my IPOD touch…anyone know?

I can’t comment on the price, but I have nothing but positive comments on the iPod touch itself. My brother has one, and it is one of the coolest gadgets in our household.
