    Fellow MacRumors members,

    I love the iPod and want to get one for a family member for Christmas. I'm a poor student, however, and wanted to go with the 5 GB as it's the cheapest and 5 GB of music is A LOT!

    Any advise on where to look/ what to do??

    apple sometimes has refurbished products so you might look there, otherwise your best bet is eBay. i sold my 5gig when the third gen came out for $190.

    Oh....this is cool....


    Anyone know how these things hold up after being used? Ive been wanting an iPod, but the price has been too high. A used one could be a good choice for me.

    Well, i've had my 1st gen 5 gig for 19 months now, and it works like new. And the battery life is still 11+ hours on continuous play. Except for a few scuffs on the face, it's *better* than when I took it out of the box (since apple's firmware updates have helped battery life).

    I checked out powermax.com

    They have great prices, but do their 5 GB ipods come in the box with all software/accessories????
