Classic iPods Are Selling For As Much As $900

It’s only been three months since Apple discontinued the iPod Classic at September’s Apple Watch/Songs Of Innocence pep rally, but the device is already fetching big bucks on eBay as a “vintage” product. A quick search reveals that new 160GB iPods are selling for around $400 each, and Billboard points out that one auction topped out at $899.99 last month. One company is selling first-gen iPods for $492 on Amazon. It’s worth noting that for all their alleged retro appeal, iPod Classics also allow for way more storage than any current Apple device, so that might be the true motivation for all the upselling; the 64GB iPod Touch, retailing at $299, is the biggest hard drive in Apple’s arsenal these days.
