    I'm only really here at night.
    Hey there,

    Anyone out there have a guesstimated price/value of an original Kindle in great shape, w/charger and protective cover ?

    I know it's not worth alot, but would like some opinions from fellow MR members :)

    Please post back or pm me with your thoughts......

    thanks !

    Considering that you can buy a brand-new Kindle with a ton more features than the original 2007 model for $70 direct from Amazon...your answer is "not very much".

    A quick search on eBay tells me you're lucky to get $40-$50 for it.

    A major selling point of the original Kindle is the SD card expansion and the user replaceable battery. Unfortunately, the trade off of the lower quality e-Ink display, 3G wireless only on the Sprint network, and lack of native PDF support, X-Ray and all of the newest Kindle features kind of make it a harder sell.

    I owned the original back in the day and have had the K2, K3, and Paperwhite 2012. Considering that the original was $400 and you can buy the latest tech for as low as $70, pretty soon, Amazon will have to pay you to get one. :cool:

    Good luck!
