    The Archos website states that it is 250g under specifications:

    Product capacity • Flash Serie: 8 GB**** flash memory + Micro SD Slot (SDHC compatible)
    • Hard Drive Disk Serie : Hard Drive: 250 GB**** Hard Drive

    But there I could not find any mention of the cheaper 8gb

    Hope that helps
