    Apple seem to have some great deals in their refurbished section. What's the catch are they 1st generation?

    yeah the nano's are first gen. they also don't come with the fancy packaging, but other than that they are identical to new (1st gen) units.

    i wish i would've bought one of these first. instead, i bought a new one... and, i ended up sending it in for repair just to get a refurb, which was actually in mint condition, probably new.

    refurbs are great ideas... :)

    I figured there would be some catch. What are the exact differences between 1G and 2G?

    I know of the paint finish and 2G is slimmer?

    Ive bought 2 of them, one 1gb one and one 2gb one. Work perfectly, look brand new.

    Only weird thing was the 2gb one came out of the box in some weird language. I found the reset all settings and it took me back to the select language screen.

    bought the video refurb and it is exactly like buying a new one except it doesnt come in a fancy box, just a plain brown one.

    I bought a 1GB refurb nano and it is awesome. If it hadn't come in the little brown box (and if it weren't 1st gen) I would swear it was brand new.

    My sister just got a 4G one a few days ago. It looked brand new... made me jealous... $99 for a 20 gig iPod. Dang!
