Actually you can get a brand new PDA-sized device that will play  
video in the $150 range: The GP2X. The main limitation is that it  
does not have a hard drive but you can get a fair amount of video on  
a 2GB SD card, and the lack of hard drive certainly helps to increase  
battery life.

The GP2X is not sold in the USA but can be ordered easily from  
several places that will ship it there. Because it can be classed as  
a "game" and not a "computer" duties do not seem to be a problem.

You can get MP4 Digital media players brand new starting at 32.99US,  
at least in the USA.
