    I’m curious what your thoughts are on the resale value of all the ‘ancient’ Apple products kicking around. I came across an email from a co-worker today selling her NotTheNewiPad 1 for $250 and I… wasn’t really sure how to gauge that price at all. Not that I’m interested in buying it – but it did make me question where things should land resale wise for Apple. Frankly, I think the products have a very short shelf life and $250 for the very first generation iPad struck me as optimistic.

    your co-worker is not too far off actually… I usually use Kijiji or craigslist as a useful tool for pricing used items. Ill explain why. For things like apple devices and phones there are a large amount of people who are selling. Thus making it a buyers market. The people looking at the listing are usually going to be drawn to the lower priced items. This makes all sellers have to match the prices of the others, despite their preconceptions of what they ‘feel’ it is worth. However, there is a limit for everyone, and some how it ends up stabilizing at an (agreed apon) price, that sellers feel they do not want to go under. (this comes after a few months of undercutting each other a little bit at a time). Economics in everyday life. The average price right now is $200-$250, this can be expected to lower a little bit more over the next few months, but after about a year from now they will essentially be worth nothing more then a door stop.

    It ended up going for $200 – which, I feel, is more appropriate. I guess what bothered me so much about it wasn’t so much the resale value of iApple things – just how damn fast the products are in making their way to, as you put it – door steps. Progress is fine, but Apple is starting to bother me somewhat nowadays – the latest version of iApple whatever being the modern version of keeping up with the Jones’s *sigh*
