I'm trying to get things in order before I get my iPod touch this time around. One of the reasons I didn't get another one after my last one had problems is because I couldn't find any good cases at the time and I wanted to be able to protect it if I was going to have one. I love the look of the cases from SwitchEasy, but at the same time I think that the iPod itself looks so good that I'm not sure I really want to cover it up with a case like that. I already have a BodyGuard that I plan to put on from my last iPod Touch, but I really don't think that is enough protection and I want something that will make me feel a little more comfortable if I want to throw it in my pocket and go. So does anyone have suggestions on a good clear case? Everything I seem to be finding has terrible reviews. Also, I've not actually made the purchase yet, so I'm also trying to decide where a good place is to get the iPod Touch from. Anyone have any recommendations on a good place to get it from? I'm thinking about maybe getting it from Amazon, but I wasn't sure how go they are if there is a problem, i.e. exchanging for a dead pixel and things. And, if I wouldn't get it directly from Apple, but it is new, I can still use AppleCare for any problems, correct? Does AppleCare replace iPods with deadpixels? When products are replaced, are they knew or refurbished? And finally, can you get the extended AppleCare protection when you don't buy directly from Apple? Thanks so much!!!
