Refurbished Ipod Mini or New Nano for 12-year-old?
My son's birthday is next week and I would like to surprise him with an ipod. I've heard that the nano is not very durable. I was thinking of buying a refurbished 4gb mini with 18 hour battery from the Apple website. It's $159 and if I had the extended 2 year applecare warranty for $59, it still is cheaper than the 4gb Nano. Do I also need to buy a battery charger for the mini? Is this a good idea for a 12-year-old's first ipod or will we end up being disappointed?
