Okay so I have had my iPod since
late 2011/ early 2012. I just got an ipad mini for Christmas and I love it. My iPod is 32 gigs and I am really getting tired of it. It's super slow, always crashing. It makes everything hard to do, so I BARELY use it. Since the iPod 5 came out, I was wondering if I should get it, or not. BTW I just bought a case online for my iPod and have only had it for a week.
If you have the means to buy it, then go on. You can sell your old Ipod, so at least you can gain money out of it. Try to ask yourself also, if there is really a need to buy a new Ipod? Will you use it for business, to earn money or just for fun? If you think, you will gain more by having new model, then go on, if you will use it only for fun, think again. Maybe, you can use the money for other investment or you can save it for emergency purposes.
In fact, you can do almost all the things on iPad that you do on iPod.So just think twice before you buy the new iPod.
