    It's definitely a great way to save money. A co-worker of mine has bought a couple refurbished iPods and has been happy with them.

    Keep in mind refurbs come in a generic iPod box and not the usual iPod Touch box.

    How many children do you have? 4? 5? 6? :eek:Anyways, I don't suggest you get 3 :apple: iPod touches. It's way too expensive. And if you can afford 3 of them, why don't you buy the new one?:confused:

    Consider what your children want the :apple: iPods for. If they want it just for the touchscreen, I would advise you to get a cheaper touchscreen mp3 player for like $100-175 (don't get generic brands:mad:). After all, one of the main reasons I bought a touch is not for the controls, but for the WiFi!:cool:

    Also, consider how old your children are. If they are like 5 or 7, don't get it. It's too complicated for them. Maybe a simple mp3 player, like a shuffle, would be fine. On the other hand, if they are like 18 or something, they should buy their own.:p

    Finally, do you REALLY NEED three :apple: iPod touches, in which could easily be broken or "stolen".:rolleyes:

    Sorry for all the smilies.
