    I've had a 1st gen ipod since the school event last year. I was originally looking to upgrade regardless so help me out with opinions. Should I get the 3rd gen itouch? I'm gonna be getting a 32 gb if I do.

    It's absolutely worth it. It's also far faster than the first gen. At the moment I'm trying to convince myself that I don't really need the 64GB version. (have last gen 32) If I had a first gen 8GB I would have ordered a new one on Wednesday.

    I have a 1st gen 16GB touch... it was the "premium" model at the time and then the 32GB came out just a few months later (much earlier than originally planned by :apple:...:mad:I would have waited for the minimal cost difference)...

    I'd like the 64GB due to personal use and capacity issues but I'm still a bit uninspired by this "current" update to really want to plunk down that kind of $$ for the minimal upgrade these now seem to be...

    It really depends on what is released for the itablet or a 4th gen iPod touch...

    I would I had an 8gb 1st gen also and then upgraded to the 16gb 2nd gen this summer and I noticed a speed difference and I loved the extra features.
