Target Dabbles in Refurbished Gadgets

Retailer Target has started selling refurbished goods from its web site, primarily iPods, game consoles (Gamecubes?), and flat-screen TVs. The deals on the iPods are pretty good—$180 for a 30GB iPod video (Gen 5)—but no better than the price of refurbished iPods directly purchased from Apple.

Still, it’s good to see a big retailer dabbling in refurbs, since I am a mega-cheapo and don’t like to see perfectly good gear go to waste.
