HOW MUCH would you pay for a new 2G nano 8GB?

Hi Everyone,

I know it may be tabboo to admit, but I don't really like the new 3g nanos. I found it amusing that a user here nicknamed it based on its size the "ipod dumpy." I am wavering into investing in an 8GB 2G nano (preferably red). Looking on eBay, prices for this nano are >$200, but I can't really justify spending that much, given the price of a 3G that has video/picture capabilities as well as a longer battery life.

So I am wondering if I could poll this forum - How much would you spend on a brand new 2G 8GB nano? Thanks.

I traded in my old 2G iPod nano for a 3G iPod nano (8 GB blue case) at the Apple Store and got a 10% discount for the new one.

You can get a refub at the apple online store for $169. Free shipping and one year warranty. That is the only way to go IMHO if you can't get a discount on a new one at a BM Apple store.

So you basically sold your old 2G iPod Nano for $20...smart

Apple's iPod recycling program...which is actually kind of a ripoff for most people unless you're trading in a busted iPod. For example, the dude who traded his nano in for a 10% discount on a $200 iPod could have sold that iPod nano for $50-100...but I guess it isn't worth the time for most people.

Actually, I was going to replace my 2G nano anyway--it was freezing up occasionally (even after going through a Reset and/or Restore) and the battery life was dropping from 22-23 hours per charge to only 14 hours per charge. I'd rather do it now than suffer a total player failure!
