Rare Vintage iPod For Sale On Ebay – For $25,000!

My pal Kevin just sent me a link to this auction on eBay which he swears is for real. It’s for a “rare, vintage, collectors iPod” and the asking price is a mere $25,000. The iPod is a fourth-generation iPod Classic that’s still in its original packaging. It’s the model that was sold by HP. Has a whopping 40GB of storage space and 12 hours of battery life. According to Wikipedia, HP and Apple ran this crazy joint venture in 2004 and 2005. To say it was a disaster would be an insult to disasters. This might be one of the only units HP actually sold. 

Still — $25,000? The owner of the iPod says in his listing, “The part number shows the iPod has been engraved but I have no idea what it might say.” 

I’ll take a guess. How about, HelloI’m an idiot and this is my $25,000 iPod.

The auction ends tonight at 7 p.m. Pacific time. That means you have only 10 hours to get your hands on this rare beauty!

If you love collecting vintage Apple equipment but can’t part with $25,000, the same seller – who goes by the name “samsonbible” and has a 100% positive feedback rating – is also listing a vintage second-generation iPod Classic, “pre-owned but with very little wear,” for a mere $2,299. That one also ends today. Hurry, because the clock is ticking.
