    Anyone seen the news reports that are saying since iPod Classic's have been discontinued the price on Amazon etc has raised in some cases to more than original price?

    I checked out eBay to see what people are paying for these and found an 80gb one selling for $150 with bids... the same one I checked out on CL for $30 just last night.

    So now I am going to try and scoop up a few of these and flip them for a profit if everybody who hasn't seen the news hasn't sold theirs yet.

    I personally think it would be worth making a road trip in the area of 100miles whichever way you want to go from your house and buy these from people at a low cost...

    You pick up say 10 for $50 and sell them for $100-150 you easily make $500-1000 off your road trip.

    WTF would one pay $150 for an 80GB one when microsd cards are less than that for a 128GB one.

    I am guessing because Apple seems to have somewhat of a cult following and since they actually discontinued a product from Apple the die hard users would be willing to give $150 for one or there 1st born just to have a piece of history... or 13-14 year old crap lol.

    Here is a brand new one that has been removed from box but still sealed selling for $390 and they have already sold 7 of them in last 2 days... (7th gen 160GB)

    and

    Here is another one used... out of the box 7th gen with 160GB that has 13 bids and currently at $235 with $2.86 shipping.

    I am baffled on how much these people are willing to pay for an iPod Classic
