    Hi, I was considering buying a refurb 80GB ipod classic. But I have just over 80GB of music so the new 120GB is tempting (plus genius) but the price is not. How long does it usually take for new products to hit the refurb store? Do they not come out until a new model is released (i.e maybe next Semptember)? Ultimately, I am asking when you estimate the 120GB Classics will begin showing up in Apple's refurb store.

    Buy a refurb 160. Isn't that still less than a new 120?

    Actually a refurb 160 is the same price as a new 120. I was wondering if the 120 would come out as a refurb for the same price of a 80GB refurb ($169) some time in the the next few months.

    Canada, where we live in igloos.
    Last years refurb nanos didn't come out till January, 4 months after release. I think they like to put the refurbs up after the holiday season, though I could be wrong.
