Apple could have eliminated the iPod Standard but presuming you want to pay a premium then you can still choose one up on ebay.com, but couple of will influence charges around $ 4,500. That makes one of the iPod auctions currently encountering something rather unique.
The reason that the existing top bid is so high is that this specific 4th generation iPod Standard is actually a prototype. Built just before the fourth generation iPods went on sale, this 40GB model features the characters DVTS inscribed on the back which, according to the public auction, means ‘‘ Style Verification Screening.’
Beyond that engraving, this particular iPod Standard’s prototype credentials are more reinforced by the reality that it additionally consists of a sticker label that is apparently utilized to track a device’s development throughout Apple’s different testing stages.
While having your hands on a bonafide Apple model is most certainly quite cool, it deserves remembering that below that DVTS name prowls a standard 4th generation iPod Classic and it’s far from in mint problem also. We such as models as considerably as the following nerd, yet we can assume of a couple of things that $ 4,500 might be much better invested in. One of those 5K iMacs would be on top of our list, but perhaps we merely do not have imagination.
This isn’t really the first time that a person of Apple’s models has actually appeared on eBay, with very early MacBooks, iPhones and iPod touches frequently making looks. Apple has actually had such auctions taken out in the previous though, so it’s entirely possible a comparable destiny will certainly happen this. As things presently stand though, the auction will upright January 29th so there is no telling exactly how high those quotes will certainly go.
