Hi all,

I wondered if anyone can help me out.

Im doing a report on apples iPod pricing strategy for a piece of coursework for my degree and i would love to compare the cost of parts for one of the first iPods (great if it was the 1st gen) to the current iPod classic.

I found loads of stuff from google about the current shuffle only costing $21.77 in parts and some more stuff about the nano. But nothing on the 1st gen iPod, and still looking for the current iPod classic.

If anyone has any links or can point me in the right direction that would be amazing :)

Thanks in advance guys

Ben

If it wasn't for the fact that they want almost $2000 to access it this looked good (http://www.teardown.com/allreports/Apple_iPod_MP3_Player_Teardown_Analysis).

I googled "iPod 5Gb bill of materials". There are quite a few useful looking links there...
