personally i don't think any piece of tech is worth selling a body part for, life is too fragile as it is, and tech is always evolving, you'll want one thing now, and in a few months something better will come out. to sell a irreplaceable part of yourself for tech is lunacy, after a few months you will question why you actually did it as reality dawns on you.

Let's see... A kidney is worth $3000 on the street or $85,000 on the proper market.

So until Apple produces an Ipad worth $85,000... I'm gonna say no.

Not for an iPad, never. Just too impractical for my needs.

Maybe a high end desktop.

As a Mac user I find that insulting. Trying to start a flame war? Cause I like both.

High end desktop can be a Mac too, in the form of a Mac Pro. Then again, I prefer Windows and I'm not gonna buy a 2k Mac Pro just to install Windows.

And if I were to ever get a tablet, I wouldn't get an iPad. Like I said, it's too impractical for my needs. For a tablet, I'd need it to have native USB ports and memory card slots. Also, a lot of other stuff that the iPad cannot do as of current.

I would not sell my anything for a 'high-end' desktop in the form of a mac. Why? I don't need 2 generation old graphics cards and Xeon Processors. I'll take my i7SNB and quad 6970s thank you.

There's always the top of the line iMac with an i7 and 6970M graphics... Not a real CARD, but they're current-gen and pretty good.

The Reverse question is much more interesting: would you sell your iPad for a liver? I guess you could make Some money that Way, but it seems rather troublesome and maybe you'd feel kinda for that Kid you bought it of....

No, I'd never sell any organs on the black market. Too risky, especially for an iPad. Now if I desperately needed the money for something important and there was a way for me to do it legally, then I might consider doing it.

Never! Unless I signed to be a donor for MEDICAL purposes. Which I am most likely not going to do.

Nope, I have enough intelligence not to be a sucker for the iHype surrounding the ludicrously priced iPad.

Money spent on an iPad would be better spent on necessary and/or useful computer upgrades.
