I never listen to my own advice when it comes to gadget buying but you really should. You just need to ask yourself one question: Do you need the best? The answer is usually no. A lot of people are going to go out and get the 5th Gen iPod Touch, just because it's newer. This is a terrible idea. You can save over $100 ($150, in this case) by getting the older version and for most of that you use it for (music, Internet, email, games, apps) it is fine. Some high end games might be slower and multi tasking might be slower but it isn't a horrible experience by any means. The question isn't "Do I need an iPod Touch?" it's "Do I need the newest iPod Touch?" and if your answer is no, you've just found the deal you need.
