You don't want to spend an arm and a leg on an Apple product. Your pockets are getting cramped with any number of gadgets, and space is at a premium. Yet you still need music for your commute, workout, walk around the block, or airplane trip. What to do? Woot.com has your answer. They're offering this player at less than half the price of other retailers.

The Philips GoGear SA1110 holds 1GB of music files and is only as big as a cigarette lighter. It's perfect for those of you who can't get enough lime green in your lives. It's lightweight, easy to stash, minimalist, and less than half the price of its rival player, the iPod Shuffle.
