    Well my ipod touch just arrived from amazon :) However I am a bit worried as it seem to be a week 27 build(john lennon box). I've heard of a lot of screen issues with the older ipods but never paid much attention. Namely negative blacks, etc. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to test it out here?

    I want to make sure its perfect before i buy the aps otherwise its going back to amazon ;)

    The person on the box doesn't say too much about what week it is.

    how do you know the week? Mine has John Lennon and it appears to be perfect after one week of ownership.

    Its in the serial number for example mine starts with a 1C748 the 48 being the week number. At first I though it was in the part number MA627LL/A which was wrong ;)

    ah well time to open this bad boy :D after running all around town to get a $15 itunes card to add to my balance towards the update. I cant believe how busy the stores are I wound up going to best buy(with a line around the entire store), then walmart who was out of them, and finally target.

    Mine has a 48 in the serial number, but I haven't had any problems. Any reason to worry?
