    Hi, there. Half a year ago, I bought a iPod touch 8GB MP3 Player. Now I found it doesn't qualified enough. I wanna move on to bigger storage ipod touch. But recently, my bugdet is a little tight. My friend suggest me to go with 32gb--I could afford it now. But I'm not sure for that. Should I upgrade to 32gb now or just wait until I save enough money?

    depends on how much content you want to put on it

    Personally, I'd like to put a great deal of content on it.

    for comparison purposes ... my 32GB has 2,776 songs - 67 videos - 76 photos and 7GB left over

    if you need more than that the 64GB is worth the extra money

    So, it is better to wait until I save enough? Hope the product drop its price a little in the near future.

    Without a cursory glance at your financials, we can't really make this decision for you.

    If you think you might need 64 GB and you can save up for it, then yes definitely wait until you save enough for it. I know I would rather pay $100 extra for the 64 GB and only use 20 GB than to buy the 32 GB and not be able to put everything I want on it.

    Now personally if it was me, I would get a 32 GB because I know that would be plenty for me but if you are unsure...better safe than sorry.

    If you're looking for the best bang for your buck, get a classic. You get 160GB for $249, over a hundred bucks cheaper than the 64GB iPod Touch. Sure, you don't get apps, but then you already have your iPod Touch, don't you?;)

    Could you tell us your amount of data you have or plan or having? How long do you plan on having it?

    8gb is ridiculous. 16 gb is ok. 32 gb is very good. 64 gb is for those who say: i would like to have 64 gb of music and video on my ipod cause i will listen to every music and video i have on it :).

    go for 32gb.

    I've never understood why people ask this question...It depends on what YOU have and what YOU want to do. I have about 12GBs of music right now, no videos, and 35 apps (normally I have about 200 apps that's like 4 or 5GBs. Plus a bunch of jailbroken themes and ROMs and stuff. I have 14GBs left on my 32GB. Sooo if you have 15GBs of music, and 1000 apps and a bunch of movies, 64GBs won't be enough. I don't need more than 32 though.

    They want to know how much storage you would recommend in order to fit them. As long as they have the amount of data they will put on it there is plenty of sense in making the thread.

    Exactly so why do I or we need to tell them? I don't mind, I'm just saying. I know how much data I'm gonna relatively put on it. If they say they have 7GBs of music, 100 apps, 200 photos, and some tv shows...get a 32gb. If you have 200 songs, get a 8GB...no harm though.

    It might be that they don't know how many GB's so many songs take. Or apps. It matters. Anyway, I think it's fine to help them. However, maybe a Sticky Thread would be more suited for the subject.
