I got a 4th gen last year for Christmas, which replaced my 2nd gen. (Back then I was wishing for more of a upgrade since I really needed to upgrade at that point.) Anyways, to answer the question - yes I'll be holding onto the 4th gen for now since it works perfectly fine for me. Have a 32gb with plenty of room left and it's quite snappy for me, even with the latest iOS.

On a unrelated note, I managed to sell my 2nd gen earlier this year for $100; probably since I sold it with the original box/packaging & extras.

Use it for a week and you will change your mind. You went into the store with the mindset that it wasn't worth it (based on all your previous post) and you probably looked at it for less then 15 minutes .

I bought the 5G last week, I would never go back to the 4G, it is that much better.
See Psycna post on page one.

Great opinions in this thread because I'm trying to decide between a refurb 4G vs a black friday 5G to share with my daughter.

4G 32GB Refurb
+ $179 at Apple Refurb is a great price
+ All I need are basic functions and game capability
+ Functional, but outdated specs
- Retina resolution but lower quality display
- No Siri (yeah, i know but I actually use it a lot)
- Scratches incredibly easy so it requires a case purchase (which adds $$)
- 2yr old product (Its tough to justify $200 for something so old. Sorry)

5G 32GB Black Friday
+ $250 (after gift card) at many locations
+ Color choices
+ Modern specs
+ All aluminum casing and lanyard means no case purchase required
- Price is sooo close to an iPad Mini (Different audiences, but it makes Touch feel overpriced)
- Price is MORE than the Nexus 7 (Kids have no brand loyalty and at $200 its a tough device to ignore even if youre a diehard Apple fan)

Its nice to know that either one is good and this is the right time to buy due to great deals going around. But as I said, I'm sharing it with my daughter and it's hard not to be selfish and think of how great the Mini is or how it may be a better long term purchase. But still, I'm leaning to the 5G...maybe...

$250 is a great pick up for the 5G. In my area, i have to wait until chinese new year to get discount on the Apple store and im sure i wont be waiting. im also deciding between brand new 4g 16g at $199 and 5g 32g at $299. I touched and played with 5G but it doesn't seem as sturdy as the fourth one ( which i owned and sold twice). Still its always good to look forward especially if you do not currently own an ipod.

I just ordered a Black Friday 5G, I use my 4G every day at work, streaming to a BT speaker (am a nurse and work in procedure rooms, boss has made the genius decision to ban cell phones, but allows us to have iPods), I sync up to the hospital's WiFi and stream Pandora with a subscription.


Am hoping the 5G is a tic or two faster than the 4G.
