    Hmmmmmmm :)

    Apple has this ipod for sale on the apple store...
    44% off!
    They have a 60gb ipod photo as well, but with only about 6% off, so alarm bells start going as to if this one has scratches all over the screen.

    My old 4g is having battery and hard drive problems, so whadaya think

    should I go for it:confused:

    Tell me about it, they appear to make up the prices as they go along.

    My dual 2.5 was a re-furb, and they were selling a refurb 2.3 at the same time, for about £150 more!

    Not to mention we won't se re-furb macbook pros and macbooks 'till about 2009...

    I'm yet to EVER see a cinema display turn up on there...some apple UK staff member must have a room at home lined with 30" tft's :)

    I cry every time I look at the US refurb store.... :(

    Precisely!

    You guys get all the good stuff refurbed. I swear there will not be any macbooks or pro's on apples web site until at least January/Febuary next year at the very earliest.

    does anyone know what kind of condition the refurb ipods come in (the black ones in particular)? do they have scratches?
