Five years ago today, the original Apple iPad went on sale in the US. Since 2010, Apple has introduced cellular versions, smaller versions, and ones thinner than part of a pencil.

Less than that.

Five years ago today, the original Apple iPad went on sale in the US. Since 2010, Apple has introduced cellular versions, smaller versions, and ones thinner than part of a pencil.

Less than that.

 In total, Apple has released 104 different models of the iPad. Quartz analyzed the resale value of a range of iPad models on Gazelle, a website that purchases old tech for reselling. Below are some of the most popular models. The prices listed are for models in “good” condition. Note: “Cellular” models refer to AT&T 3G/4G models for older iPads and unlocked LTE models for newer devices.

Unsurprisingly, the most valuable iPad on the list is the largest and the newest. A 64GB LTE iPad Air 2 is worth $270—considerably less than the $729 you most likely paid for it not long ago. Sadly, the original iPads have not held up so well—on Gazelle, they’re now worth less than a new pair of Apple headphones or a couple of overly designed lanyards.

There wasn’t much difference in price between storage sizes for each model. Apple tends to charge about $100 more for the next storage size up—128GB versus 64GB, for example. But on resale, the difference was generally between just $10 and $25.
