The online Apple Store is clearing out 8GB iPod Touch refurbs for $199 shipped. That's a pretty sweet price considering that they sell new for $299. And I'm here to tell you: The Touch is the single greatest thing since sliced bread.
Essentially an iPhone without the phone, the iPod Touch does music, videos, photos, e-mail, Web browsing, and tons more, and looks Jessica Alba-sexy while doing it. The new 2.0 software update adds support for games, e-books, Internet radio, the New York Times, and countless other applications. (My current favorites: Aurora Feint, Bejeweled 2, and eReader.)
I'm not sure if said update is included, even though the product description reads "current software release." My guess: Plan on spending 10 bucks for the 2.0 upgrade. It's well worth it. Indeed, I own a 16GB Touch, and it's my single favorite possession, bar none. The only problem with this deal is that 8GB of storage will fill up in a hurry, so you may want to consider splurging on the 16GB model ($299 refurbished, down from $399 new).
