    Well I sold my 5.5G iPod in anticipation of the new Touch iPod.

    I figured my 5.5G would loose a lot of value once the new iPods come out.

    Hoping the rumors were true and the touch comes out...

    Keeping my fingers crossed I made the right choice!

    i think you made a pretty safe decision. it isn't like apple is going to stop making ipods, right? ;)

    If you can live without an iPod for a bit, I think you made the right decision. My friend just bought an iPhone and has an extra 5.5 60 GB sitting around. I told him to sell that thing asap unless he wants to lose even more value then he has to in a few weeks.

    I also just sold my 5G iPod 30GB for $200 on Craigslist. It was out of warranty as well but in Mint condition. I'm hoping for a 16GB flash model.

    Ya I got 200 bucks too.

    Mine was still in warranty though and was also flawless... I barely used it at all... (I had just gotten it like 2 or so months ago)

    Oh well I didn't loose much...

    Kinda sucks I just started school w/ out an iPod... That was what I bought it for... Will be so nice if I can watch movies on a widescreen though!!!

    I have like 3 hour breaks between some classes and I am an off campus student...

    Movies are NICE!

    I just sold (well closed a transaction, the iPod/Money haven't switched hands yet) my 4th Gen iPod 20GB in anticipation of the new iPod announcements on the 5th (Touchscreen please!) I included the iPod, USB 2.0 Cable, Firewire Cable, AC Adapter, and unused Apple EarBuds for $120. I wanted to sell quickly, got 3 offers in less than a day :)

    lol I have a 3G, no way I'm gonna get much if anything. Besides, it was a gift from friends and the battery is dying. I'm REALLY anxious for a groundbreaking 6G. I mean an upgrade from 3 to gotta be off the hook right? Wednesday can't come any sooner.

    I was in a similar situation, desperate for the next upgrade, but then I got my iPod's battery upgraded...

    good move indead. I sold my 5th gen on ebay 2 days before the 5.5s came out, got an extra $75 for it. I think it's a pretty save beat that you'll be getting a slick ass iPod on Wen.

    sold my 5g 60 gig video (black) for 225 the other day, so I'm part of the club

    I hope this touch iPod is going to be amazing.
