My friend has an iPod video.   60GB model, in perfect condition, without a scratch, just short of one month old.

He asked if I'd be interested in taking it off his hands, but I'm at a loss to come up with a fair offer.

The new 80GB models announced today are going to be selling for $349, and they're going to have more than
double the video battery life of the current 60GB iPods.  Given that, what would you say a fair offer would be
for my friend's 60GB iPod video?

Unless he'd rather spend $50.00 more for a better one.  If he won't give you a sale price then go lower and let him counter up.  Offer him $225.00.

I'd take it for 250; depending on how good the friend is.

Personally, I'd check out www.ebay.com first and do some searching on completed sales of that model including shipping.

If you really want an Ipod I would spend the extra $50 and get the 80GB model.  Its odd Apple isnt even listing the 60GB in its store online they have the 30GB for $250 and the 80GB for $349.  With that pricing scheme it would be hard to come up with a price that is fair to you and close to what he paid.

As far as ebay goes, I just sold a 60GB  iPod Photo (no video capability) for $280... of course this was Sunday, so the new ones hadn't been officially announced, but still... I'm surprised it went for as much as it did.

Not to take over this thread, but i'm looking for an iPod myself in the 1g range to use solely for running.  I didnt want to go over $100 too much.  I guess a 512mb would probably do too.

Other than Ebay, anyone recommend me a player?  I see a 1g at NewEgg for about $100, but i've read alot of negative reviews on that model.  Anyone had any success with something other than Apple?

Someone give me some ideas.

Ok--my friend's asking for $220.  It's decision time.

Do I grab his, or do I spend the $380 (with tax) and grab one of the new 80GB models?

I got my daughter a 512mb Ipod shuffle for her birthday.  It's the cheapest Ipod ($70).  It's tiny and very easy to use and holds about 100 songs.  I use it when I'm doing yard work and I love it.  The thing about the shuffle is you can't pick the exact song you want to listen to.  I don't mind this.  I'll put 100 songs on from my Itunes library (again very easy) and listen to it like it's a radio station playing only songs I like.  It's a very neat device.

If you wait a few days, you can pick up one of the new Shuffles--1GB for $79, and they're smaller than a matchbook

I have a 'half price' rule, if the used item is ~half the cost of a new equivalent, I buy the used one.  To me, 220 is close enough to the ball park of half of 380 to qualify.  So I'd go for your friend's ipod.   

The only reason I'd consider spending the extra cash is if the new one had features that I absolutely had to have.  But if that was true in this case, you wouldn't even be considering your friend's ipod right?

I picked it up from him, then, I spent $60 at J&R on an ILuv silicone case/extended battery that'll push the battery life to 55 hours audio/10 hours video.  That works for me.

I use a Creative MuVo FM personally for running.  Mine is only 512mb capacity but I got it because it also does FM radio and it's the same size and dimensions of a USB flash drive.

ok, i'm all but sold on this mp3 player. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16855609002

reviews have been nothing but positive from what i can find and the price is awesome.  however, i can't have it if i can't find a case/belt clip.  i'll be using this when i'm running and i need some type of case/clip.

looking at the specs, can anyone find a case/clip that would fit this?
