Pretty sure you could buy more than just a car for that amount. ;) Also, I think that the ad is written that way as an attention getter. Hoping to stand out in what I'm sure is a boat-load of listings for iPads.

We are in recession and someone is willing to pay 160000 dollars for an iPad? Nice... that's a price of house.

This iPad must be really magical.

Pretty sure it's illegal to sell that with the music on there, especially since he is advertising that fact. Maybe the inflated price is to account for royalties to pay the artists?

Bentley.

I'm sure there are several important people in Nigeria or those who have recently inherited estates in the western states who would have plenty of income to spare on this special product. :D

Craigslist really needs to add the ability to comment on posts, so you can call people out on their BS ads that they post....

"and a bunch of random Glee episodes that have somehow made it onto the device, despite the fact that I do not watch or care about that particular show." :p

Well, here is the reason it is been sold for that price:

Should you wish to pay the full price, I will include the background image of my adorable yellow Labrador Retriev :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

Just flag it for spam. If more than a few people do it it will state that it's pending removal and won't even let people view it.

I think we now know why this is a truly magical device. It acquires licensed content on its own. Was it struck by lightning and came out of the factory with the world's first truly sentient AI?

Why? Is he not allowed to ask that much for it?

Of course he's allowed. Don't be a wise ass.

Edit: I was going to comment on your "newness" here, and then I didn't. Then, I noticed you were in time-out and everything was suddenly clear.
