It's to laugh

This is from http://www.gotapex.com -- they advise you to buy an iPod Mini and rip out the 4gig mini-drive, because it's cheaper than buying the drive by itself!

Apple - Mini iPod for $229 (Education) or $249 (Normal). 4GB Hitachi Microdrive ($499 Value) Inside! (Posted by: Apex)
Need absolutely ginormous storage for your digital camera? Hitachi`s 4GB Microdrive 3K4 (basically a big compact flash type drive) is normally $500-600 or so. However, Apple`s new iPod Mini uses one of these drives inside as storage. You can get one of these iPod Mini`s for $249, or even cheaper at $229 if you`re a student or teacher! Just pop it open and grab the drive. The Creative MuVo 4GB also uses the Hitachi 4GB Microdrive, but it`s more expensive at $299.
