    Hey guys,
    I am planning on purchasing an iPod touch 4g soon (case i bought just came in the mail the other day) and I'm still not sure whether to go with the 8 gb or the 32. I have maybe 1 or 2 gb of music and about 100 apps that can't take up more than 2 gbs. I would plan on loading some movies and photos too. But the big thing that I'm not sure about is space for HD video. I know that I will probably take some, and over time my usage will probably increase. It only costs $70 more for 4x the storage capacity, which makes the 32 gb enticing to me.

    Any insights from current users with 8 or 32 gb capacities? Will I be pushing it if I buy the 8 gb? I don't want to regret getting the smaller model, and I am a teenager so while I can afford the extra cost easily, I don't want to spend more if I don't have to.
    Thanks

    15 minutes of video recording takes over 1Gig of space.

    Definitely recommend the 32.

    I am having the same predicament. However, I'm not sure how long it will take me to get $70 more than I planned on spending.

    If you have the money, you should probably get a 32GB.

    I don't mean to hijack your thread, but:

    As said before I am having the same predicament.

    I don't want to spend the extra, and I will probably have 500 songs at most. In a year or two, 1000 at most. I will probably have 250 songs, and then in a year or two 500 songs. I won't have much, if any, video. Probably a 100 or so photos. Not sure about the apps. But since apps don't take up much space, probably a GB or two will suffice.

    You should get the 32gb version if u plan on using the ipod touch for atleast 2 years. 1 or 2gb for music is only 100-200 songs, your music collection will grow by years... Since ipod is a great platform for games i recommend to get the 32gb, exclusive ipod games from big developer will be big in the future

    I will probably update when the 6G comes out. If there is.

    On average it is 250 songs per GB.

    Games are ridiculous memory eaters. Can't really blame the system there.

    Get the 32GB if you can afford it. I always thought that 8GB would be enough for me, but next time I will go for the higher storage level (whatever that will be in 2011).

    If you want to use it, not just for testing as a software developer then 32gb is the sweet point for most purposes. 64gb is way too expensive.

    If he doesn't need 64GB there's no point in getting one.

    Also, iPt is my least favorite abbreviation ever.

    You guys need to use the "convert to 128 AAC" feature, it's not like most of you are using headphones that could take advantage of higher bitrate songs (and the touch hardware can't take advantage of it really either)
