A very interesting article for a die-hard Apple product fan:
If you reeeeally want an iPad but don’t want to scrap together $499 for the entry-level model, then the iPodMeister service has an interesting solution for you — swap 600 CDs for Steve Jobs’s newest product.
iPodMeister offers a one-stop solution for anyone looking to flog their CD or DVD collection in return for an Apple device. At the lowest end of the scale, 220 CDs or DVDs will get you an 8GB iPod nano, while 1,150 CDs or DVDs will net you a 64GB 3G-enabled iPad.
Adding to the simplicity of the service, iPodMeister will also “digitize” your music collection (i.e., rip the CDs you send in) as long as you are prepared to see the CD “cost” per item go up.
While the service has been going since 2004, the iPad option is naturally the newest addition, seeing as how the device is due to be available on April 3.
