    Well, the 32 GB of iPod touch (the third generation) has better performance, speed and graphics, and some games on the iPod touch is not working on 8 GB of iPod touch. I can't decide to buy which version of iPod touch should I get, so you decide to recommend the 8 GB and 32 GB of iPod touch. Thanks! [​IMG]

    You guys do know a new one is coming out this Fall, right?

    Be that as it may, if you are going to do anything with videos, get the 32 gig. 8 gigs is a lot for music, but decently compressed movies are going to take up all your space if you only have a handful on the 8 gig one.

    Inside you, all around you
    if your getting one soon, get the 3rd gen 32gb, it will be able to do all the things on iOS 4.0 and it is way faster than the 8gb because all they did was they took the 2nd gen 8gb and changed the model into an MC model which all MC models have a new baseban/bootrom put in which makes it considered a 3rd gen ipod even though it is mostly the same thing as 2nd gen 8gb,

    also a jailbreak is coming soonish for iOS 4.0 on MC models so if your looking into that just get the 32gb one

    iPod touch 4G will be released in September, when new iPod are announced annually.

    I suggest you wait for this; you can probably snag an iPod touch 3G on clearance, or go for the 4G if its features tempt you.

    Three months is a long time to wait.

    8gb is pretty much useless unless you rip all your music to 32kbit. (and the SQ will be so low that it is still useless).

    I say wait until September when the new ones come out. If you can't wait, then get the 32GB one because you'll eventually run out of space if you get the 8GB if you put alot of music/movies/apps on it. I currently have a 32GB one because I knew I was going to fill up 8GB fast.

    Well, I bought the 32 gb one a week ago. I'm pretty pleased with it. When I was deciding I thought 8gb sounded like plenty of space, but now that I think about it and I've actually used it, 8 gb just doesn't cut it.

    If you download LOTS of files and want them to follow you everywhere (I'm talking music and movies) you are going to most definitely want the 32GB touch AND wait until Fall. Believe me. I started off with a 4GB iPod and gradually worked my way up. I got the 16GB touch when it first came out because it was the largest. I nearly filled it right away. Then, my touch got soaked in Powerade sports drink, so it was a nice time to upgrade to the 1st gen 32GB. Shortly after I got my expensive 32GB, (it was $500 bucks at the time...) Apple came out with the 2nd gen. -_- To make matters worse, I believe that was the most expensive the iPod touch ever was and I only got about $50 off because of the recycling program they ran.

    Well, you kind of said it yourself which is better. If you want an ipod touch for the games and the other demanding apps, go with 32gb. If you want it just for music, go with an ipod nano or something, it's cheaper. Just wait until September if you REALLY want new features. (Probably an even better cpu than the 32gb and maybe even a camera)

    8GB iPT 3G actually have the same hardware as the 2G.DON'T buy this, it is slow!! Go buy 32GB. If you can wait, go for the upcoming iPT 4G ...IMHO you better wait for the iPT 4G [​IMG]

    32gb has got nintendo 64 emulator, which is (for me) reason enough to get that one.
    You will have to jailbreak it though (for the n64...)
    I got the 8gb myself [​IMG]
    Though it's not bad [​IMG]
    It's great, and haven't ever experienced problems with any app at all...

    The n64 games run pretty slowly, but its still better then on the 8gb or any second generation. (it can't be perfect, even on the ipad it lags a bit)

    I'm pretty sure that the new generation of iPods are coming out soon, maybe you should wait a little while?
