Why You Shouldn't Purchase The New 16GB iPod Touch

In case you haven't heard, Apple released a 16GB iPod touch without a rear-facing 5-megapixel iSight camera at a more affordable $229 price point. The thing is, as a consumption device the new 16GB iPod touch will quickly fill up with hefty games, music and movies. For an additional $20, you can get a refurbished 5th generation iPod touch with 32GB of storage and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera capable of recording 1080p videos with even more colors to pick from for $249. Apple's refurbished iPods are practically new and come with a one year warranty, but you can only purchase them online. The new 16GB iPod touch isn't worth purchasing with such a small difference in price compared to a like-new 32GB model offered by Apple itself.
