I kinda like the Platinum colour, thought it wasn't my first choice. If I could have I would have gotten Red, but my trip was only a weekend long.

Me too. $259 is my PMP price point. It was with the last gen and with the HD too. Which is good because it will probably be the next generation (or the next) before the storage I want is at that price point.

Nah, Microsoft is simply making the previous price cuts of last month (which the Amazon sale prices already reflect) official/permanent.

Not necessarily. The MSRP will be $199 leaving it up to retailers to raise it or lower it. But most likely we'll see the 16GB for $150 at some point.

I hope for a custom EQ in the coming spring update, so I can get this. If not, then I'll get a J3. The price for a total of 64gb will be more then (dap + microSD card), but I want to be able to set my sound the way I like it.

The other day Dell.com had a one day deal where the 16GB sold for $150 and 32GB sold for $200; however, that's a one day sale and not the suggested price by Microsoft. As mentioned above, it's up to the stores to determine the sale price. Just keep an eye everyday at various stores. I bought my 16GB from Dell.com for $180 when it first came out so Dell.com once in a while will have the Zune HD on sale at a deep discount.

Same price?
Ipod touch is $400 for 64GB
Zune HD is $350 for 64GB

Don't get me wrong...$350 is still a bit much IMHO for what you are getting unless you absolutely must have the largest capacity for your songs and video,etc....

The iPod touch is ONLY that price on the Apple website. Everywhere else it's markedly lower.

When This is released I can almost guarantee Apple cutting the prices on the touch accordingly, and MS also making the necessary price cuts as well.

Either way you look at it the DAP capacity war has, officially, begun.

This is really weird, Apple is supposed to be the "Half the features for the same price" but ZuneHD is like that.... Same price as a ipod touch with half the features(apps,speaker,dedicated volume button,bluetooth,themes/used customization, acessories, etc)
