Then why not sell it on eBay? I had a gold one (not so desireable) since launch, and just sold it last week for 270 bucks on eBay. I got it at the edu price too so it was pretty good for me. And besides, the fees on eBay will only be like 10 bucks.

$260 is a pretty good price considering you don't need to pay tax. Mini iPods are still pretty hard to find here in SoCal, and I assume other big cities as well. If someone doesn't want to go thru the trouble of looking for one, this is a great opportunity to get one at a decent price.

You'd only be making 10 bucks.

There are easier ways to make 10 bucks.
For example, look at my user profile, and check out my "interests"

What ever floats you boat....

i'm glad this turned in to such a disscussion about whether or not i should be selling it and for how much.

lets just forget the whole deal, my brothers birthday is coming up and i can give it to him.

gwuMACaddict - sorry everyone crapped on your thread. I think it's a very fair price. Were it a pink one, I'd have gotten it today for my wife's birthday. Others looking for a silver one would buy at $260, I'm sure. I appreciate you offering it the the MacRumors community at what I think is a fair price. Although some Apple Stores apparently have the minis, all three even somewhat near me are out and will be out for some time.

Yeah, stinks up the whole forum. ;)

I think proper "Marketplace and Classifieds" etiquette is that, if you feel someone is misrepresenting something, call them out publicly. If you think someone is overpricing something, send them a PM. If it's priced way too high, no one will buy it, and no one gets hurt. If it's priced a bit high, but the price is still reasonable for someone, I don't see the harm. It's hard to find an exact, proveable, fair price. In this case, for example, Rezet thinks it's too high, whereas I would have bought it immediately were it a different color and thought that I'd gotten a great deal - at worst, even if I could buy it for no tax up in NH, I'd've lost $10. With tax, I come out even, including shipping costs. So I don't think it's right to complain publicly about items being priced "too high" when it's not blatantly too high.
