I know that there may be other posts on this, but I wanted to weigh-in on Apple's refurbed iPods. I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical at first; wasn't too sure what I was going to get. However, I must say now, that I am pleasantly surprised. Although the iPod didn't arrive in its signature plastic box, it had all items in tact: usb cable, dock adapter, earbuds, two sets of bud covers (foam -- i know, i was surprised too) and of course the 4GB nano. All the parts look brand new with no scratches. For $99 (and free shipping at the time), I would recommend these refurbed iPods to anyone.
