Sell your iPod Classic now as it is worth a small fortune!
Ruthless types who racked up a selection of devices merely because they had an Apple logo on them, are now selling iPod Classics on eBay, who reckon they've seen 3,000 sold on the online car boot sale since October.
Naturally, some buyers have complained that the condition of the resold ones aren't quite what the seller was claiming, with something that looks like it's been stuck up a dog's arse arriving in a jiffy bag through their letter box.
Collectors editions of the iPods are going for even more. A set of boxed U2 iPods sold for £50,000 on eBay in October, and another rare edition sold for £7,995. An old prototype also sold for £641.33. Demented.
However the main basic non-fancy 80GB and 160GB ones are going for around £100-200.
The iPod Classic was quietly put out to pasture back in September due to Apple claiming they couldn't get the parts. Which seeing as Apple invented it, surely the whole 'parts' issue shouldn't have been a thing. Perhaps the 'parts' excuse was simply them saying "We haven't given a shit about updates for these things since we went iPhone crazy".
And it's all about the cloud these days, as Apple have been shrinking their hard drives, expecting everyone to throw their content in the air like they just don't care.
Anyway. Cheerio iPod Classic. If you've got a couple stuffed away in the back of a drawer, get it on eBay now!
