If I had $195, I'd be all over this. Sadly, I don't have that much cash.

I'm Bryan. Nice to meet you, Wooter.

I have the this iPod touch, and let me just say, the Retina Display is amazing. Pretty good price, too.

If these are official Apple refurbs (which I think they are), the outer shell is BRAND NEW, which means no scratches. You wouldn't be able to tell it was refurbed! Great deal.

I wonder, is the retina display really all that? I have the 3rd gen, and it looks pretty dang good...

Why not pay $15 more and get it new from Amazon?

This doesn't seem like that good of a deal. Or am I missing something?

190 for a refurb? No thanks woot. Amazon had these new and it was a way better deal.

That's the previous generation. This is the current generation with front camera.

That link is for previous generation, but the description for today's deal says this is the current generation.

There aren't a crap ton of reviews yet for this model, but the few that are on Alatest are good. 100/100 good.

I do a daily woot blog where I talk about the woot, link to CSEs, find reviews, etc. A few people have told me it's useful. Google "useful linkage" and there it is.

It's 209.99 through Amazon (no tax and free shipping) - brand new. My local BestBuy is even selling it for 209.99 (+5% sales tax). I'm not one to pay less than 10% off for a refurb, no matter who did the refurb-ing.

If you buy this, you MUST buy a gel case or better. If you drop it from any height - 2 inches or 2 feet - the front glass will shatter. Apple doesn't cover this as warranty work (duh), and you'll be out $100.

Bugger, I just got one and it was delivered today. Not a refurbished and directly from apple. At least I got free engraving and shipping I guess

My son has the previous gen 8 GB and I have to say the screen on the new one is absolutely amazing. A very nice improvement.

For only $15 more, I'd get a new one from Amazon with the full 1-yr warranty. The refurbed 32 Gb model can be had from the Apple store for $230 with a 1-yr warranty.

$210 new at Amazon. Or refurbished at $185 + $4.99 shipping. Not a Woot worthy deal.

what happened woot? this is no deal at all. I remember getting a Xbox 360 surround sound system for $90 new when it was $250 retail. This disgusts me.

Those are the last generation with slower processors and not the new nice screen display.

the issue is that when one gets it from amazon is the warranty, according to an apple genius.

got an ipod from amazon and the warranty started when the reseller purchased it from apple, NOT the date that i got it from amazon.

Doesn't seem like a great deal. For $15 more (including shipping), you can get a new one from Amazon. ($209 vs. $189+$5)

I would NOT recommend this 8 GB iTouch to anyone.


oh crap. That really stinks.

Oh good, now I don't have to leave Verizon.

This has not been a quality post.

Also, I have this model. Got it new last September. Love it, use it every day, works fine, no problems. It's like having an iPhone 4 without that pesky phone feature or a contract getting in the way.

The last time I ordered one of these, it didn't come with black earbuds and I almost lost my mind!

This is no deal. Pay another $15 and get a brand new one with a one year warranty instead of this refurbed one that probably was handled by someone who did not wash his/her hand after a bowel movement.

Isn't this kinda like a Sansa but with worse sound quality & a much higher price?

Don't think these are official Apple refurbs. Apple's refurbs have the full 1-yr warranty. This one has a woot 90-day warranty. Boo.

8GB is not enough. I have too much music.

Interesting. Normally I'd say that buying a refurb from Apple's own store is a better buy, but they don't have any of this generation right now. Congrats to woot!

This is directly from Amazon though, not a reseller. The warranty wouldn't start from when they purchased from Apple (not sure about 3rd party resellers though)..
