You can buy an Xbox 360 for the low price of $99.99 at GameStop right now ... but be warned, it's a bit of a gamble. For one thing, you're not buying one of the new Xbox 360 S models, but the old, notoriously unreliable, RROD-prone original models (with a 20GB hard drive). And it's refurbished...

We received a question from one of our readers earlier this week that made me cringe, cower in fear, and heavily debate posting the answer.
