That being said, I have a 3rd generation iPod and absolutely love it. Wouldn't even think about purchasing a different mp3 player.
Have you tried checking out any stores that have them used? Maybe I'm just lucky, but the CompUSA near me and one of the best buys near me had a few open boxed ones. Best Buy had like 12 or so, I have no clue why. Bought a 20 gig iPod for my girlfriend for $150.
Mint condition, just didn't come with the dock or the wire, no biggie.
