Free $50 Best Buy gift card with iPod Touch purchase
If you're considering buying a new 32GB iPod Touch (fifth generation), this offer makes some sense because Apple products just don't get discounted. Target is also offering a gift card ($40) with the purchase of an iPod Touch.
Verdict: Mildly hot
- Overall score: 8.6 (4.0 stars)

The good: The 2012 fifth-generation iPod Touch has an excellent set of features: better front and back cameras, 1080p video recording, iOS 6, and a 4-inch Retina Display just like on the iPhone 5, in a design even thinner than the iPhone.
The bad: The iPhone 5 still beats it on performance. The Touch lacks any phone functions, and there are tablet competitors that beat the $299 Touch on price and screen size.
The bottom line: The latest iPod Touch is the best iPod ever, and as close to a phoneless iPhone 5 as you can get -- but its high price makes it a tough call versus cheaper tablets with larger screens.
