    I am ready to buy the BB playbook, and I heard people saying they got it for 200 (16gb), and they got the 32 for 250.... but for some reason, all three versions seem to be 300 bucks right now EXCEPT for on Amazon, in which it is about 260 for the 16gb. So, I am wondering if there is any retailer out there selling it at $200? I would prefer to buy the 16gb version at that price, but if I can't, the best deal seems to be getting the 64gb one for 300, but I didn't want to spend that much :/

    So, anyone know???

    Is a refurbished unit worth getting for the price? I've always worried about getting them used, I feel like they may have some damage or have been dropped or something...

    A good number of people returned 16GB/32GB, to trade in for the $299 pb, so you may be able to find open box pb. If you can afford it, 64GB is very nice though.

    Hm, good point. I will definitely stop by their store tomorrow to check. Worth a try! I am a little tight on the money so I am trying to get it at the best deal possible.

    Don't know your locale, but you can also try Craigslist. CL in New York has more than a few 16gb for $220 - $240.

    Might be similar for your area.

    If money is a little tight then maybe you shouldnt be buying a luxury item like a tablet?

    Just IMHO, but maybe I am wrong.

    Yes, money is a little tight, but I am still able to afford 200 bucks. I don't see why that is any of your concern though. Maybe instead of being a mild troll, you can give more helpful answers? (Plus, who ISN'T a little tight on the money these days? Sheesh).

    Thanks to everyone else for the input.
