Apple is now offering iPod Minis (first and second generations) in their Refurbished Store! First gen (8 hour battery life) is offered for $149 in blue, pink, silver and green, whereas the second gen (18 hour battery life) is on sale for $159 in silver, blue, and green. So basically that's 1 hour per dollar more (US) and lack of choice of pink for the 2nd gen. That's a bargain to me!

Sounds like a pretty good deal to me for someone that just wants a great player and doesn't care about it being "cutting edge", eh? :-)

Well I would think it's obviously because the minis are discontinued and they're trying to get rid of excess stock.

and i guess they have sorted out what they predict they may need for any repair / exchanges if there was a problem with someone's mini that they bring in.
