iPad For Sale

The time has come for me to go ahead and sell my precious first gen iPad. I could go to ebay or something of the sort but after a messy attempted theft of my old 50mm f/1.2L camera lens on ebay I decided to avoid it when possible. I have a lot of trust in my readers and hopefully you guys have trust in me as well. Therefore I decided to use 50ft to see if any readers would be interested in picking up my 64GB wi-fi iPad directly from me. I have thought about it and decided I could throw in a couple of additional accessories with the device. The Apple iPad dock, a hardshell case made by Speck, and the SD card reader from my camera connect kit. The hard shell case is a bit scuffed up but thanks to that shell it’s not the iPad back that is scratched up. I thought about loading it up with every ipad wallpaper I have made up to this point but I thought it would be best if I shipped it totally blank and ready to be re-named and customized to your liking.

Now, I can not tell you that this is a meticulously perfect unit. It has been used a good amount over the past year of owning it and took one fall from my 1ft high coffee table leading to a scratch or two along the edge of the metal back. I have photographed the corner so you can see what your getting into. I want to be as honest as possible about its condition. Other than what I consider to be normal wear for someone who travels with it day after day for an entire year the unit itself functioned flawlessly. The battery life is still killer and the screen is still as bright and beautiful as the day I bought it. Many of you read through my thoughts on the device already so I feel I don’t have to get into too many details about how much I have loved the iPad so I will leave it at that.

As for price, I am flexible on the price and am looking to get at least its going used rate so I decided to have anyone interested to simply email me at fiftyfootshadows-at-gmail.com with your offer or questions, if you don’t have an offer and are interested to hear what I am looking to get for it simple email me. I prefer to keep this part of selling it private so I hope you understand. It will ship in its original box to keep it nice and safe (yes, I am a box hoarder hehe) and the iPad was purchased May 3rd 2010 so you still have a month to purchase Apple Care for it should you choose to do so.

I will ship immediately after payment has been received through PayPal using UPS with tracking and won’t charge you the shipping cost unless its overseas. As for world shipping, I would prefer selling this within the US because I am not so savvy on international shipping policies and customs fees so please understand If I can not ship it to anywhere too remote. I don’t mean to be vague on this point but these are my thoughts on the matter.

Thanks for having a look! I may remove this post or simply update it when it has been sold.

sad corner (It’s unfortunate but there it is. It had been a sharp dent there in the corner but I smoothed it out with a touch of very fine sandpaper.)

    I did really well using my local craigslist. Cash & public – had 5 people contact me the first day and sold it that day. Something to consider.

    I would buy this just for the photos alone but I already have one, lol.

    Did you use the SD card reader often? I was thinking of picking one up.

    Hey I would love to take this iPad off of your hands! I don’t know if you’ve already sold it or not, or what prices you’re looking at so if you could just either answer here or just somehow get in contact with me with what you would like to sell it at, I’d be happy to talk. I’m not looking for anything expensive AT ALL. Thanks Again.

When sharing images via your personal blogs I kindly ask that you link back directly to either the post the image was taken from or the base of the website at www.fiftyfootshadows.net and give a credit to www.fiftyfootshadows.net.

Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files. This is more or less the same as re-posting them as it circumvents the tiny bit of support I ask of you which is to simply link back to the original post for others to enjoy the site.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
