Selling Your iPad2

I'm currently suffering from device and information overload. I've transitioned into the next realm of computing and connectivity. I'm a lifetime PC who has in less than 4 months gone completely Apple. I'm very happy and very blessed with the new upgrades that have come with my new occupation as a social media strategist and the generosity of immediate family members who saw fit to do something I would've never gotten around to doing --- upgrading.

Despite my satisfaction, I'm admittedly a little tempted by the March 7th Apple announcement and presentation of its iPad HD that the hitting the shelves on March 16th. The technical upgrades as far as visuals and graphics, one of the spaces I work in as a budding photographer, immediately appealed to me (not to be confused with taking pictures with an iPad which I personally believe looks ridiculous - but that's just me). The ability to review, display and potentially edit photos and videos on the fly with touchscreen functionality is really appealing. And like any device, there are people who don't need all that and would be quite satisfied with a gently/barely used iPad2.

In trying to figure out where I would begin I completely forgot about my eBay knowledge and their Instant Sale functionality. It works like this:

1. You locate your item.

2. You populate the fields (answer the questions) that relate to your item.

3. You review the offer eBay makes on your product and you decide to either accept or ignore their offer.

There is no risk involved. eBay pays for the shipping on the device and insures it (up to $500) with tracking so you can check where your device is every step of the way. You will get an email as soon as your device is received and once the condition is confirmed, you will receive payment by PayPal within five (5) business days.

This offer is a little low for my tastes considering the original purchase price and the fact that it is a gift that isn't even a full 3 months old. Whether I sell it on my own remains to be seen, but with eBay Instant Sale, you have a quick and easy, hassle-free, fair and equitable selling/trade-in solution if you must have the newest latest piece of technology as soon the news breaks that yours is officially outdated.
