I thought it had a GPS inside...At least in the 32 GB version.
No thanks, Apple.

Apple has a very stringent refurbishment process that includes, among other things, a brand-new battery, outer case, and accessories, replace any malfunctioning internal components with genuine Apple replacements, a complete burn-in process performed (again), and a full one-year Apple warranty.
When you purchase an Apple product that was not refurbished by Apple then you are taking the chance that all they did was check to see if it turned on, reset the software, and wiped it down with Windex. And you'd be lucky to get a 30-90 day warranty. The reason why there is such a large third-party aftermarket for refurbhishing Apple products is because there is also a large gray market of Apple products (unauthorized overproduction runs, direct copies by unauthorized manufactuers, etc) that Apple won't cover. Buyer beware if it doesn't come directly from Apple!
I have heard these are often systematically scooped up from pawn shops, etc. Cables are non-Apple, etc. Any confirmation?
