The only time to really get a deal on an ipod(besides from buying it from costco where you have a lifetime warranty on it for free) is right after new ones are released.
Apple today has refreshed the entire line, so be on the lookout for some awesome deals on the older ipods!
Ipods announced today (according to news.com and ilounge.com):
Ipod Video-Now brighter and with many other features.
Ipod Nano-Now thinner, in aluminum(like a thin version of the retired ipod mini) with 24 hours of battery life, and in colors.
2 GB-Silver Only-$149
4 GB-Silver, pink, green and blue-$199
8 GB-Black Only-$249
Ipod Shuffle-Now in metal with 12 hour battery life, and is now the world’s smallest mp3 player
