    Hey Macrumors! :) I was just wondering if it matters where I buy the ipod touch 4th generation. I plan on getting the 32 GB and I am upgrading from ipod touch 2nd generation 8 GB. I am from Wisconsin.
    Should I have put this under buying tips and advice?

    Does it matter weather I buy the ipod in the retail store or online?

    Buy at your local Apple Store, or Best Buy. Maybe call first and see if they even have any in stock before you go.

    I got mine in 2 days after ordering from amazon. Its perfect (no light leaks or clicking sound in videos). I saved about $25. And amazon is an authorized apple reseller so you won't have any trouble with apple regarding warranty.

    Retail stores like Best Buy, Walmart, or Target. I wouldn't buy from the Apple Store again. If you need to make a replacement, first you need to make an appointment and wait a good hour or so before they give you the replacement. If there's something wrong with the replacement they may replace that a few more times until the tell you enough is enough. If you buy at someplace like Best Buy, Target, Walmart, etc. all you need to do is ask for an exchange and they do that in 2 minutes. You'll also be able to replace as many times as need be.

    +1. No tax is awesome here in California. If you live in New York, I would just go Apple retail since you have to pay tax anyways. If you need a replacement, couldn't you just make an appointment with the Apple store to get the issue solved?

    I say support your local retailer. If that is an apple authorized retail store go there. Enjoy.

    This varies per store. Don't assume that every Apple store is like this. The Apple stores I frequent all have excellent customer service, and I'm in and out very quickly.

    I was at Sam's Club last night and they had it for sale at $279.00. That is the best price I have found it so for. MacMall was selling is for $289.
