When are refurbished models of the latest generation ipod touches likely to go on sale from Apple? How much are they probably going to cost? I realize this isn't an exact science, but educated guesses based on the history of refurbished ipod touches (or any other insight) would be helpful. Thanks!

Do you mean the ipod touches with retina display, facetime, etc...? If so, looks like they're on sale on apple.com now.

If you're talking about the next generation of ipod touches the mac rumors buyers guide gives the average update time at 273 days. Since it's been 41 days since the last ones were released, i'd say 232 days or so.

Response by poster: I'm talking about the used/refurbished ones, not the new ones. Eventually they should be on sale here: Refurbished iPod.

jourman2: the OP is looking for refurbished models, which sell at a significant discount.

I'm guessing here: Wait another month or so and they'll only be $50 off, 'cause they're the latest version.

The refurb iPads are going for only $50 off across the board, which is 10% at most.

Best answer: I ended up buying a new one. So, um, problem solved.
