Default Where On Earth Can I Get a Sony Vaio Pocket in 20 Days!? HELP!

Hello everyone. This whole year i've been waiting until Christmas as my parents said they'd get a me a Vaio Pocket (VGF-AP1L)...I'd have got one myself but have been skint all year.

Only issue is, a couple of months ago you could get them a lot of places, now i can't find them anywhere, apart from Ebay which is a last resort really...Or some stores which charge the ridiculous retail price of 399.99!!! Which, they're not paying. It needs to be under 200 really, i've seen them for like 160-180 around 6 months back. I think it's cos they've been discontinued.

Anyway, fact is i don't want an iPod because everyone has them and i don't really like them that much, plus the battery life sucks.

Don't suppose anyone knows where the hell i can get one of these Vaio Pockets??

If not, i'll have to get a different HDD player, and i have no idea which one. I want something which no-one has at school cos i hate jumping on the bandwagon, like with the pods. Also it has to have good software, and, most of all; look awesome. Like the vaio.

Thanks.

The Creative Zen Vision is a nice HDD based PMP.

Creative Zen Touch is also very nice So are the Rio mp3 players. iRiver tend to either be expensive yet feature filled, or expensive yet good looking (very very good looking)

I don't really like those creative, iriver, or rio's...They just seem like ipod imitations.

...Sorry, i am so fussy about everything in life it's unreal. Just, the Vaio Pocket is perfect. I like Sonicstage (the new version is good), i like remote controls on portable players (i've used a minidisc player from Sony for years). Basically, there isn't anything like a vaio pocket is there?

I'm in the Uk, i can't find anywhere to buy them at all...tis a joke. I'm going to have to resort to a bloody ipod and i don't like them cos 99% of the population own them.

...I even head Japan were considering an iPod tax, hehe.
