    Hey guys, not sure if this is the right place for this, but I need a quick opinion....
    How much could I get for:

    4th Gen iPod (I belive it is 4th gen, it is scroll wheel w/out color) Edit: 20GB - sorry i forgot this
    * 9 months old - bought in Feb.
    * Includes Apple Protection plan
    * White Leather Case by7 Incase
    * Very good conditon - I have treated it well

    I may sell it to a friend/co-worker and I don't want to rip them off, but also don't want to loose too much money on it. What do you think is a fair price?

    I would say maybe $300-400 if you transfer the protection plan.

    $300-$400 might be more than retail for those items depending on the capacity of the iPod. Those prices are nuts - you'd be way better off buying a new iPod.

    If this was a 20 GB unit I would think $150 would be fair, if it is a 40 GB unit, then maybe $200. You have to remember that for $300 you can now get a slimmer 30 GB brand new 5th gen. iPod with a larger, color screen that can display photos and play video. You may even have to go a bit lower with the new 5G iPods out.

    How can it be 4th gen without color? They all had color except the U2 and mini.

    Nope, the 4th gen iPods were originally introduced in August of 2004 with no color screen, but they had the click wheel. The iPod Photo models came out a couple months later and then this past summer those lines were merged into the iPod with color screen, or whatever they called it... they were all 4th gen though.

    It's 20GB. And the guy ended up buying a nano. I may have another friend who may want to buy it. But I also thought of just getting a new one for me and giving it to my folks, if they could figure out how to use it.

    Oh, well in that case, $150-$200. I assumend you had the 40 GB.

    I once had the exact same model, but I outgrew it and gave it to my mom (I am not a momma's boy, I repeat: I AM NOT A MOMMA'S BOY :p)

    I just sold a 3G 20gb iPod on eBay for $154.

    I noticed a trend with other auctions though. If the page was formatted well people could get a lot of money!

    5G (NEW) $295-$305
    5G - (USED) $290-$300
    4G color - $225-$300
    4G b&w - $175-$225
    3G b&w - $125-$200

    The trend I noticed that they were selling at retail and every update back lost about $50 on the lowest of the models (ie - on the 5G...30gig is lowest 60gig is highest). The highest of the models usually added $25. An added bonus (like cases) really only mattered if competing auctions didn't have it, cases were like tie breakers.

    Anyway... that was just my observation.
