64GB Zune HD gets a launch date

Earlier this week, DailyTech reported that the 64GB Zune HD made an early appearance on the official Zune website. Although the link to the actual product was inactive, Microsoft’s intentions were clearly made.

Today, Microsoft has officially confirmed the existence and upcoming release of the 64GB Zune HD. According to Microsoft, the new player will launch on April 12 at a price of $349.99. For comparison, Apple’s 64GB iPod touch rings up at $399.

In addition to the pricing and availability information for the 64GB Zune HD, Microsoft also announced that the existing 16GB and 32GB models will each receive a $20 price reduction.

If $50 is the difference between eating or not then you need to re-examine your priorities, because you shouldn't be buying $300 gadgets.

Even the poorest of people like to occasionally scrape up money that would normally be used for food or rent to buy a luxury here and there. Perhaps he was exaggerating just a bit, but in all seriousness, imagine a college student. Food for a week could be budgeted under $50 if they are a light eater and rent on campus can be cheap as well. Being a full time student, you may only have a part time job paying a very minimal amount of money. After tuition expenses and the above food and rent, you could easily be left with almost no money at all. At that point you might be willing to eat a little less each week to slowly save for something new like an xbox or PS3.
