    I am seriously considering purchasing my ipod touch from apple.com as a refurbished model. The only thing i am worried about is it being noticeably used like a scratchs on the back and what not.

    anyone ever buy a refurb unit?

    Thanks!

    Thanks man. I actually talked to someone on their website and they said the same thing. They replace all the backs and clean them all up inside and out.

    I will be doing this.

    Yup, me too...

    I've had my 8 gb Touch for about 2 weeks now and am one happy camper! It looks like new and other than an email glitch that won't allow me to access my home-based email program (GMail is working fine); it is 100% and FUN!

    I bought a 32GB factory refurb off ebay for $320. It was sealed by Apple and had had a few extremely minor scratches on the back that were barely visible.

    Otherwise it's working fine and seems basically brand new (other than some software issues with 2.0 of course).

    I'm glad I saved the $200.

    I got a refurb as a replacement for my first touch that had some pretty bad problems. Wasn't too happy with it, in fact. It came sealed and everything, but there were some very odd-looking scratches for about 5 centimetres extending down from the Wi Fi receiver, several scratches above the cable connector, and even a scratch between the home button and the left edge of the iPod. I very nearly took it back to ask for another one, but they probably would have tried to tell me I scratched it myself.
