I've just read a suggestion that the cheapest way to buy a 4GB microdrive (Compact Flash II form factor hard drive) is to buy a mini iPod and throw away the rest of the iPod.

mini iPod - $249
4GB microdrive - $400

Though searching for those prices, it appears there's a $200 Creative Labs MP3 player that uses a 4GB microdrive that is both cheaper and avoids annoying the Holy Order of Apple Worshippers.
