Apple has added several refurbished iPod minis to its online store. Apple is currently offering first-generation 4GB minis in silver, blue, pink and green for $149. The company also has a stock of second-generation 4GB models in silver, blue and green for $159.
The second-generation mini offers 18 hours of battery life (compared to the original’s 8), color-matching icons on the device’s click wheel, and ship without a FireWire cable or AC adapter, which were both included with the first-generation model. The iPod mini was discontinued with the introduction of Apple’s iPod nano in September 2005.
