I would not have spent $300 on the new touch. But I was able to get it free from credit card points. That said its an impressive little device. The camera is equal to the one on my ipad mini and ipad 3. The screen is brilliant and is what the Mimi's screen should be. It's fast and truly is a pocket Mac in many ways. But $300 is an insane price. If the mini is $329, which I also got for free with rewards points, the touch should cost no more than $200 for the 32gb. My wonderful 16gb nexus 7 tablet cost $249 when it came out last July. And now the 32gb is I believe $200 or $249. Actually a far better deal than the touch. But again the touch is even more pocketable and equally as powerful.
