Even though it may not seem like a lot it's actually not that small. The only bad thing is when Apple says their product is 8gb that's without any of their files they are putting in so you are starting with roughly 6.6. If you take pictures or videos with the ipod touch transfer when you can to your home computer. Both of these use up a lot of space. If I ever want more u can buy a Kingston wii drive that gives u 16 to 32more gb. Externally. You do have to have this in arms reach in order to use it.
