...which runs $250.
Alternatively, your two-and-a-half bills can grab you one of these or one of these or one of these or one of these.
Now, if you want to talk about $200 ≤ x < $300, then there's lots of players in the 20+ GB range, most of which are north of $250. True, they don't come in five fruity colors and feature TEH APPAL on the back, and you'll have to suffer with five to ten times the space of the iPod mini, but whattaya gonna do?
