8Gb vs 16GB Ipod Touch

I listen to music occasionally, don't truly need to carry alot, but would like to use apps, have photos, use the internet and occasionally view a movie now and again. Also will use as day timer, phone numbers etc. So, I realize more is better, but with the above utilization on a daily basis, would an 8gb Touch serve me well vs. a 16 GB? Obviously, will get 2nd generation.

I suggest you create your collection in iTunes now and see what total memory your racking and guess how much you think you will need over time from your music/video adding habbits. Video will take quite a bit of room so unless these videos are going to be deleted once watched and new videos added then 8GB should be fine but if you will have gigabytes of videos permanaently living on your iPod then getting more memory to work with may be better.

8gb vs 16 gb

Thank you for your advice. I would be deleting video after watching, why would anyone keep video?

I just got myself an 8gb as I couldn`t afford the 16gb, just had a baby and wife wouldn`t let me

I have 20gb of music and many gigs of videos on my computer. I have had larger capacity mp3 players before and although I like them for storage I hate it on shuffle. With my 8gb, I just dump what tracks I fancy onto my ipod, put on a video, have many many apps that I have downloaded and still have a few gb free.

In my opinion, you may as well either go all out for a large capacity device and store everything or just keep it simple and update your ipod library!

That said, there is no argument that the larger capacity the better, at the end of the day you can store more without worry of filling it. I`m just trying to say that if it is a case of you having to go for the 8gb, it is not like it is a problem!

If I have the money I will go with the larger storage pod. I keep at least 1 movie on my ipod touch when Im at a place I need to entertain myself.

When in doubt always go for the higher capacity so you don't regret it later.
