Back to $239.95 as of this posting. Fortunately (for me), I ordered yesterday @ $199.95 and was able to get the $10.00-off coupon - big thanks to you guys here. Added the 2-day shipping, also a Bluerex case @ Amazon, and a Sandisk Ultra 16Gb class 6 micro SDHC from Newegg... all totaled, about $260.00 - Still not a bad deal. Could've saved about $30.00 on less expensive accoutrements but I wanted to do this right.
From everything I've read about this Flyer, I expect it'll be perfect for my needs... just have my fingers crossed that the refurbished piece will be a nice one.
Thanks again guys! Without this thread, I never would've pulled the trigger.
Edit: arrived on time looking like new. I upgraded from GB 2.3.3 to 2.3.4, but no HC for now. - Fwiw, the Blurex case is a nice fit for it.
