Default Which iPod touch to get.

So I'm going to be buying a iPod touch for the Lady's birthday since that's what she wants. My question is which one to get. Obviously the bigger the better, and I'd like the 64 to hold all of our music. However I don't want to spend that much, so it obviously has me looking at the 32gb. That got me to wondering if I'd be better off buying the 8gb and only putting some music on it. She mostly wants it for the apps anyway not holding music. She has a regular iPod Classic for the music.
My biggest question is, is the 8gb one still a slower version than the 32gb? I know I read in the previous generation that the 8gb one was basically the processor from the 2nd generation and to get the true 3rd gen specs, you had to get the 32gb one or higher. Is this still the case, or are they all the same other than the hard drive size now?

There is no difference other than storage space.

I recommend the 16 GB.

Incidentally you can run a server for your music on your computer and access it from the iPod via wifi.

I purchased an 8gb this past January thinking I would never have enough music to fill it up. Now I only have about 1gb left, and there's only about 1000 songs and about 30 apps, with no pictures of video. I would recommend to anyone to get a 16 or higher.

Honestly its only $70 for 4x as much space, also 8gb formats to about 6.5gb of usable space. Yes it is the same specs this time.

Just one man's opinion here, but I'd splurge on the 64GB one, if you have between 32GB and 64GB of music. Being able to have your ENTIRE library on one device is way better than having to spend time shuffling music on and off of your iPod.

the gf just got a new iPod Touch. Mostly uses it just to play Angry Birds. Highly recommended, lolz

Angry Birds

Although it has increased the time it takes me to poop by at least 10 minutes.

I have an 8GB and my friend has a 32GB. Mine seems to load slower.

Not so much in "stock form", but after I jailbroke them (both the 8GB and 32GB), certain programs do run slower in the 8GB. Granted its programs like Cydia or big file games (Street Fighter), but yeah it does run slightly slower.

My wife got the 8G. Let me give two examples.

1. We got "all" of our music on it. All, I mean songs we actually listen to. Not the entire CD, so sometimes it's just hits. There are more pictures to bored a stranger if you ever want to bust out the albums. So we only keep good quality worth-while pictures. Not worthless junk images. She has ALL her apps, whatever they are, and a few games. We still have enough room to expand and add more.

2. We will soon be adding our digital copy of Toy Story 3 on the iTouch for the kids. It gives them something to watch while waiting for an appointment. I don't know if it will have enough space for it. We will find out. What if we have two movies?

So which type of user are you? We are #1, but soon will be #2. So we will need more space.
