I see that GameStop has Refurbished Ipod Touches now. They are much cheaper than getting one from Best Buy or Walmart. Would you trust a refurbished one?

Thanks ahead of time.

No, not even from apple itself. Say what you will, Apple will ONLY give you one year of Applecare for the refurbished product and it will have no cover once the one year lapse. And replacements also counts within that one year limit.

And refurbished usually means only repair (not total replacement) of the parts and components and perhaps a brand new casing (and perhaps batteries, although that is hard to verify). That means that you are using the old parts (even if it is reparied) that has undergone extensive use by other users and the wear and tear is going to mean that your refurbished product is going to have only a fraction of the lifespan of a brand new product.

No! Refurbished could have had problems which got repaired. However problems come and go. Wait a few months(1 or 2) if you want an iPod at a good price. After the iPod 5 is released ipod 4's will be much cheaper! Dont buy an ipod 5,only the screens bigger and costs an extra £100! Pointless!

I would HIGHLY recommend buying one off Apple.com, because it is fully refurbished and inspected before they sell it to you, and it even comes with a warranty.
