    So one of my friends gave me his 3Gen HP Monochrome iPod Clickwheel 20GB.
    He said he couldn't get it to work.
    But I am amazing and got it to work.
    It runs fine and everything is normal.
    There's only one problem, I have no need for it since have an 80GB Classic.

    So I have decided to sell it but don't know where to start.
    Anybody have some tips on how much I should sell it for?

    This belongs in the Marketplace, that's what it's designed for, plus you would have better results.

    Mac2Sell.com has been pretty accurate for me.

    Don't you have to be a regular to start a thread there?

    I don't have the Macrumors Regular title yet so I can't.
    I only have Macrumors Member.

    Yeah, you haven't been here long enough, nor do you have enough posts.

    Check out Mac2Sell.com.

    Hmm... they only recommended I should I sell it for $50.
    Eh, I thought it would be more considering it is an older model and people would like to use it for a collection.
    I guess it's better than nothing considering I got the iPod for free.

    And while I was on the site, I searched how much it recommend I should sell my 80GB Classic for.
    I'm glad I checked because I was planning on selling it for $140 but the site recommend I sell it for $170! :D

    Well if it's used as a collectors item.
    If you looked at a lot of other stuff like video games, they're really expensive.

    And I searched this iPod on Ebay and most of them were going for at least $100.
    Some as most as $130.

    Ebay is not a reliable indicator of what you could get for it on a site like this (if you had enough posts). Usually prices are inflated there compared to forums and Craigslist. If you can get more for it than that good luck.

    I'd want a tenner to take it away to be brutally honest.

    Probably a little less or more since it's a HP iPod (depending on who wants it0

    I wasn't planning on selling it on this site, or any site other for that matter. XD
    I don't even know how to do that.
    But I may use my friends Ebay account.

    That's what I was thinking.
    Especially since HP iPods are super rare since they were discontinued pretty quickly.
