    They're going down in price everywhere, since an updated version is coming in september.
    Besides, with Apples back-to-school promo, Amazon is probably losing sales.

    I understand but there is something weird about pricing of the 64GB.

    This is not the case for 32GB version.

    32GB sells for $264 at Amazon.

    Apple sells it for $299.

    Amazon and other online merchants usually drop their prices on iPod's this time of year since in September they're coming out with new iPods

    What is the real MSRP on the 64GB version? $399 or $350?

    The MSRP is $399. The prices are dropping because of the new Touch, why Apple still has them at MSRP is beyond me.

    That's why I asked. It does not make any sense. I thought someone could give a valid reason other than new ones are coming soon.

    I dont think there is a reason other than they are being ridiculous.

    Apple doesn't drop it's prices because that signals that a product that it makes may be refreshed. The others don't make the product, they just sell it - so it is in their interest to have little or zero of that product left if they think that Apple will come out with something new.

    Amazon discounting it $30 for the next two months gets rid of iPods. When Apple releases a new model and the old ones are slashed $100, that is harder for resellers to get rid of them.

    Apple would rather give away ipods than drop below msrp. I dunno. They are showing record earnings so whoever has been crunching the numbers have been doing a great job (since this is like the 4th time they've done this back to school thing)
