    Hi guys

    I'm currently working in a highly secured workplace whereby no cameras devices are allowed. I am looking to purchase older generation iPod touch which can allow me to play games/listen music/watch some videos as well.

    Basically I got 2 choices to go:

    1) Purchase used iPod touches from 3G and before.
    - I knew of a seller selling his iPod 2G 16GB @ 50USD with severe scratches at the back and a small dent
    - No warranty

    2) Purchase a refurbished iPod touch 3G from Appl
    - Apple's selling refurbished iPod Touch 3G 32GB @ 150 USD
    - Comes with 1 year warranty

    Which choice should I go?

    And is it worth it to purchase an iPod touch without camera? In this case I won't be able to enjoy facetime too.

    ...since its older hardware, I'd get the refurb from apple if you have to get one = that way you will have a full year warranty and the option for applecare.

    Economically wise?

    I will only be in my workplace for 2 years? and after that I will not need to be bounded.


    Btw another choice I can go for is iPod Nano without camera as well.. at the expense of unable to watch videos and play games.

    Refurbed. It's still supported by Apple in iOS 5 and will probably have (limited) iOS 6 support, plus a warranty and you can sell it later for a quick buck.

    This is spot on.
