Snag a Zune for $99

Get 'em while you can! Last year's model offers plenty to love, and new firmware gives it a major makeover.

It's no secret that Microsoft's rolling out a couple new Zunes tomorrow. But you know what? The original Zune's none too shabby, what with its 30GB of storage, roomy screen, FM radio, and Wi-Fi capabilities. Plus, the $15/month Zune Pass lets you fill that sucker to the brim with music.

Microsoft's also rolling out a firmware update that gives these "old" Zunes all the new-Zune features: podcasts, Wi-Fi syncing, support for TV shows recorded on your PC, etc.


While supplies last (and trust me, they'll go fast), you can snag the original brown Zune from Amazon (via J&R Music World),, and Costco. ( even has free shipping.) That's a helluva good deal on such a feature-packed player, and the new firmware (which installed easily on my trusty ol' Zune) really rocks.

Update: Woot's got the Zune for $84.99 today only, black or white, and you can nab a free travel kit if you order two! Wowza.
