Selling iPad first generation

Im planning on selling my first generation iPad 32 gb no 3G to my buddy. Is $300 fair? My buddy wants an iPad and I don't want to nickel and dime him but I don't want to get totally taken advantage of either. Used on eBay seem to be going for like $350-400. Think $300 is fair or too low?

Re: Selling iPad first generation

if you're asking if your offer is "too low" it sounds exactly like you're nickle and diming him.

Fair enough. I mean I could sell it to him for 100 bucks but I would feel taken advantage of if I did that. I could say $500 but that would be too much especially since he could just buy one on eBay, although it would be less hassle just buying from me. I guess what I'm asking is if you bought a used IPad for $300 would you say that was a good or bad deal?

I would never pay $300 for a 1st gen ipad, that's just me. I guess it sounds reasonable. For some reason, to me, $250 sounds more... or $300 if you have a couple of accessories to go with it.

No accessories. Just one of those standard black fold over apple cases.

$300 for a 32 GB wifi 1st gen is a fair price. Not a deal, not a screw job.

Thanks. I actually took TallGuyMe's suggestion and went with $250.
