Buy this one?

I'm thinking of contacting this guy to buy his netbook:

Basically he's charging used what I could probably get it for new and definitely refurbished. But he upgraded the RAM to 2GB and is throwing in Windows 7. You can't buy netbooks new with that much RAM and I just don't have the time to take it somewhere and have it upgraded. So it might be worth the money to just buy it like this all upgraded and ready to go.

Does this seem like a decent deal?: Dell Inspiron Mini 10v Netbook with Windows 7 Pro, 2GB Memory Upgrade - $325

What's the difference between a digital media player and a video mp3 player?

I am in a mad rush to buy all the electronics my business needs in the next month so I can get the tax write off for 2009 and have them for my trip to LA in December. My 4 year old mp3 player no longer plays in both ears when you plug in headphones. Add to that the cracked screen from when I dropped it on the sidewalk and it is definitely time to replace it. And thus my question:

Why does a Zune 30 GB Digital Media Player cost the same as a Zune 120 GB Video MP3 Player? Isn't 120 GB more than 30 BG? Or is it because one is a digital media player and the other an mp3 and video player? What's the difference??
