iTouch or X Fi2
So I've heard good things about both, iTouch has more apps, whereas the X Fi2 is cheaper and has better sound quality. So I was wondering which to get. I'm looking mainly for music and movies, games/other apps aren't really that important to me.

Just to let you know price comparisons, a 64gb iTouch is about $450 (aus) and the 64gb X Fi2 is $220.

you said "x fi2 is cheaper and has better sound quality", so if you don't want all the apps (which is your reason for thinking of the itouch) why not just go for that?

hurrdurr

Because I don't know all that much about either. The X fi2 may be cheaper, but the build quality may be really bad and it may break easily. If that's the case then there is no point buying it. I want to know if anyone has had past experience with either, and what they are like to use.

I have an iPod touch and I love it - In my opinion good sound, looks stable (a friend has one which fell out of his pocket that often, one edge is bent - it still works like it is new) and there a many apps

Well the iPod is pretty good for music and video already.

I think if you consider the X fi2, you should also consider the Cowons, the S9 and J3 are both great options with similar sizes. Great for audiophiles, good eq options and sound adjusting stuff, and all sorts of formats supported.

So it guess it depends just how much you want to focus on music, cuz the overall functionality of the ipod touches was too much for me to resist, myself.

The quality of the regular Creative Zen is great, so I assume the x fi 2 would be just as good.

iTouch.
SO great, nothing compares.
Sound quality is good, and it's durable beyond one's imagination.

Usually a good idea. But the ipod touches always get their update a month later. Can you wait that long?

I think the next version will be a pretty big step up, if the iPhone proto is anything to judge by.
