    Ipod touch is selling at least 10 dollars cheaper on amazon.com.
    So, why in the world you people ordering from apple.com?

    Are you all really just have extra cash to throw it away?
    Or are you guys the ones who just have to have the product on launch day? like stupid fanboys?

    They ship it late. And with USPS. They don't deliver straight to the door :D

    Just because I want the product on launch day, doesn't mean I'm a fanboy!!

    It's not any cheaper on Amazon for me.

    So Apple.com looks like a better option.

    Because amazon.ca doesn't sell electronics. Only books, DVDs and CDs.

    Because I don't want to wait until November to get mine (once they get it it can take like 3 weeks to get it).

    This.

    Amazon's estimates for free delivery are ridiculous. Any money you save on their price you'll have to make up getting next day or 2nd day shipping. And even then, I guarantee Apple's free shipping will STILL beat Amazon's shipping.

    prime - 2 day and via UPS or on Saturday via FedEX.. problem is dunno when it will ship, though I don't think it truly is November. I can save ~$45 total on a 64GB on discount and tax over Best Buy... but I want it ASAP lol. So I will be waiting for Best Buy.

    Amazon says my delivery estimate is between the 16-23, and they're usually pretty spot-on when it comes to these things. I get prime free with my .edu account, so that combined with no tax+cheaper price+2 day shipping kind of sold me on going with them. I'm really not taking my Ipod Touch anywhere until I can get a case for it anyway, and since the good case-makers are on pre-order only right now, I don't see the point in getting it early.

    Just an opinion.

    Amazon uses a number of shipping companies. Rarely USPS but on occasion a company named OnTrac (west coast only).

    $10 to have it on launch day seems like a fair trade off to me.

    Amazon prime is worth it's weight in gold and then some.

    I have never had any problems with Amazon. They sell everything. I'm sure if you preorder you will get it launch day or the next. If your going ape to get the new ipod touch, :rolleyes:, go stand in line at a apple store. Gives me a good laugh when I walk by.

    Any UK users buying a mac should look at Amazon. The price reductions are really good. With nextday delivery

    If it were a preorder maybe.. It seems like it's just backordered. But I can wait :D Amazon Prime ftw.

    It's more like a 35 dollar difference when you add tax.

    +12345

    I always check amazon first before i buy from somewhere else... no tax, free 2nd day shipping (student prime), awesome return/exchange policy.... why wouldnt you???
