      $15 if you count shipping. Just curious, what's the difference between 1st & 2nd?

      Here is the best answer I have found:

      Second generation adds...

      Volume control on side (not much sense in my opinion, since I rarely change the volume, I'd much rather have playback control on the side).

      Built in speaker - handy mainly for games and apps, not the most stellar sound quality, but handy if you don't have headphones or you want to show someone something.

      Longer battery life - well not really because when the 1st generation got updated to 2.1 it got the same power management, as a result the 2nd gen isn't any different in battery life.

      Thinner - Well this is actually a lie, its thinner at the edge, but the 2nd gen is actually 8.5mm thick, and the 1st gen is 8mm. So it's indeed not thinner.

      Nike+ - I normally wouldn't use a touch for jogging and such, and you still have to buy the entire nike + package, you just don't have to use the tranceiver it includes. So not like saving you much in terms of just buying the shoe part.

      New Ear Buds - the 2nd gen is capable of using the new 80$ earbuds that include playback control in the neck strap and has a mic. The 1st gen lacks the extra contact (apple didn't want it to be too close to the iPhone in terms of features).

      So to me not too many differences to even make it worth while.

      Also the 1st gen iPod Touches can be jailbroken (up to 2.1 currently, 2.2 soon), the 2nd due to hardware differences cannot yet be jailbroken.

      Both models will play the same content from the app store as the software is nearly identical.

      Here is a shorter version of pretty much same:

      There are a few key differences between the two models. The Second generation (gen) of iPod Touch has speakers, external Volume buttons, and built-in Nike+ support (for nerds that run). Other than that all other features can be made equal by updating the software on the iPod to the latest version.
