Tiny discount but given the uncertainty about the follow-on, I bought one.

Used "mint" ones sell for about $340, which is oddly a high % of new given they're in stock.

I also purchased one because of the rumors of no more Nexus line. 32gb in white

I always buy with a view to selling. Fewer Reds bought as its newer so ~ 1 yea from now my "mint" N5 will have fewer sellers to compete with.

My N5 $385 new 32gb goes with my N7 2013 32gb (refurbished $170) and my N10 32gb (refurbished $278).

What also made me pull the trigger is I spent a lot of time yesterday having to work stood up and moving on my N4 and just don't want a bigger than that form factor in my hand but do need fast cpu and memory, just a little taller than my N4 is all I need. These other high-spec are losing the plot on hand size. If I want a bigger screen I just bluetooth tether my N7 and use it two-handed.
