    Yep, September's not that far away now. I'd look at selling your 1G now to maximise its resell value.

    Wait

    Definitely wait. I have been without a touch screen ipod for a while now. If you really need music i would just get a cheap ipod off CL or something to last for a month. Thats what I did.
    Also for the money you want to spend, after the update you will probably get double the capacity.

    iPod updates at the end or near the end of the back to school promo for students.

    Wait, Wait, Wait.

    You'll regret a purchase of a 2nd gen today when the 3rd gen shows up. even if it doesn't have a camera built in it will still be an improvement over the current model, and likely cheaper.

    Wait a month, and you'll be much more satisfied. No point buying now, you'll just be disappointed when the new one comes out.
