At Christmas you'll probably find better deals - as I did with the X.
Yeah, you're probably right but I'd still personally
consider anything above £200 for 64Gb a bit overpriced and £195 for just 16Gb is just ridiculous in my opinion. Yes, Sony hagve a reputation for great sound quality but just how many other decent 16Gb players are availabel for a fraction of the price.
When all is said and done, there's not a great deal of difference between the A845 and the older A729. I got hold of the A729 for just £70 so there's no way I could justify paying £195 for pretty much the same thing.
IMHO I'd say the following were reasonable launch prices:
A845 ... £150
A846 ... £200
A847 ... £260
