    Picked up an iPod Touch from a fellow OTer and am thinking about Applecare. Is it worth the $59? I also have a 160GB Classic that did not have Applecare and I never had an issue. What all does Applecare cover for an iPod Touch? Am I covered if I drop it?

    It has a 1 year warranty with it. I'd stick with that. There isn't a lot that can go wrong with them unlike a laptop for instance. Seems like a waste of money.

    i have a refurbed ipod touch that's probably a good 2+ years old at this point...
    it's been completely flawless, never an issues or a problem...

    if you drop it, chances are that's called neglect, and not really a device failure because of software/hardware issues

    Didn't get it with mine. Seems more stable than a laptop with less to go wrong.

    not worth it. buy a new one if it breaks after the year warranty, but chances are it won't.
