    As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay, or Amazon for prices of similar models, to get an idea of what you may be able to charge. Then adjust your price to account for condition, configuration, remaining AppleCare coverage (if any), etc.

    Let me guess... you upgraded to iOS5 and now its CRAZY slow, buggy, and there's no way to revert to iOS4? Well, at least that's my problem... Yeah, I'm a bit angry about it, too.

    They look to be going for around $300 on eBay. :D

    You didn't tell us which configuration?

    I just sold a 64GB iPad with wifi and 3G (AT&T), and got $385 for it locally, including the original Apple case/cover and a 3M privacy screen protector I had on it. I was asking $400 on Craigslist and had to haggle with a college student who tried to offer me $350 initially.

    LOL, sorry... I'm there, too. Only problem is my iPad is school-provided (I'm a teacher) and was free to me. Obviously, I don't want to have to buy one if I don't have to. Man, do I regret upgrading to iOS5... all I wanted was the split keyboard and now I NEVER even use it... *sigh*

    I thought the split keyboard was an iPad 2 only thing. I have a friend at work who showed me the split kb on his iPad 2 but I never even looked for it on my iPad. I'll have to give it a try on my 16 GB iPad 1 when I go home this evening. Slow? Not in my experience but I use my iPad mostly for taking notes at meetings and the occasional ebook and the occasional puzzle game.

    Safari crashes ALOT on my iPad 1 now. It's even crashed just going to macrumors.com when there are a lot of graphics in a story on the main page. It's starting to get a bit frustrating.

    I downloaded the demo for the atomic web browser, but it has the same issue.

    www.thestar.com crashes just about every single time I try to go there, which is too bad because they have completely designed their website around the iPad and tablets in general.

    Seriously, someone go to www.thestar.com and tell me if your iPad 1 crashes.

    Nope; works perfectly fine on my 1st gen., but I just haven't found it as useful as I thought it would be. Oh well... :) Can't speak for everyone else, but I can say that my iPad is DEFINITELY slower than it was iOS 4.3.3.

    Before the iPad 3 actually comes out, I'd say you could probably get someone to give you $300 for it. If I were buying I would not pay more than $250, selling I'd start at $325 and take no less than $275.

    I have two original iPads both 64 GB wi/fi and 3G. They both ran fine with IOS 5.0... both currently run IOS 5.1 (beta) and they work as fast as they ever did, with any IOS version.

    wierd.... I upgraded our ipad 1 the second I could, and it seems fine to me.... I'll probably get a 3 also, unless the price goes way up.
