    Gah! I'm torn which of these to get. I got a good deal for both of them.

    $115 for the 8gb iPod Nano

    $231 for the 32gb iPod Touch

    No tax for either. Which is the better deal/better to get? I have an iPad already so I don't NEED the iPod Touch... but 32 gb for 115 bucks more along with bluetooth, wifi, iOS... way better deal.

    I can't decide! Help! :(

    Lemme start off by saying that I love this question haha, and I'll be more than happy to give you my opinion (given I was in the exact same situation).

    I myself got an iPad 2 a while back and along with having an iPhone 3GS, I have barely been using my 2nd gen. 16GB iPod Touch. I am moving to Europe without the iPhone so that is why I had and iPhone and iPod Touch (for those wondering). The ONLY thing that the iPod Touch can do that the iPad cannot, is: fit in your pocket. Why have 2 exact same devices, in 2 different sizes obviously, that essentially do the exact same thing?

    You said it yourself that you don't NEED the iPod Touch so why not save your money? I sold my iPod Touch to my 10 year old sister for $110 bucks and got myself a Graphite 8GB Nano for $109 plus CA tax on eBay from (Macmall is the seller so I still get my year warranty ;) ) I couldn't be happier with the Nano, it clips on anywhere, it's small and lightweight, does exactly what I need it for and nothing more (music player, everything else I have iPad and iMac), looks AMAZING, and I saved myself a bunch of money rather than getting a new iPod Touch. The OS is very easy to get used to, and contrary to what some reviews say, I really like it! The new "double-tap home button to either play/pause music, or skip to next track" is a great feature in the new software update, especially if you're driving or something and don't want to fuss around with the touchscreen. Take it from someone who had the iPad+iPod Touch and iPad+iPod Nano, I love the switch and I wish I would have done this ages ago...

    Interestingly enough, the Nano has a few things that the Touch cannot do. I really hope you bite on the Nano! :D

    Btw, would you mind sharing where you got these good deals? Thanks!

    Hey! Thanks! I think I will go that route. I got the deals on Amazon Warehouse Deals. They're "open item" but pretty much like new. I think the original warranty still applies since they are an Apple reseller. Great deals on there some times!

    I guess I was mostly torn over the 32gb VS 8gb capacity thing... not that I have that much music on my iPod ever. :p

    Huh, I might check that out. Is anyone eligible to buy from Amazon Warehouse Deals? I already buy a lot off Amazon (no tax :) ) but I've never heard of this.

    And yeah, kinda a downside but I'm just fine with 8GB... Don't forget you could always go for the 16GB if you really needed it!
