    Has anyone bought one from Apple's online store? Do the refurbs have a new metal back installed? Thinking of getting one for 200$.

    As much as I hate Ipods, given at that price, it would be a good deal. As long as it does die on me the instant the warrenty runs out.

    I'm interested as well.

    Kinda weird, but I actually work for Apple, doing the refurb iPods. They look pretty much brand new when we ship them out to the customers.

    Do they still come with warrenties and stuff? Sorry, I'm kind of just too lazy to check it out.

    Not sure about warranties, I don't deal with that sort of stuff.

    They come with a 1 year Apple warranty.

    And i'm definitely getting one now then. I lol couldn't care less about the music I'm just getting it for covert internet and messenger as pressing buttons on my phone makes too much noise.

    And it's got a high res and damn the thing is really thin so I'll also be using it to watch anime in school (i go to a jesus school and during mass i sit in the back room controlling sound, which means i literally do nothng for 2 hours)
