Default should i keep it?

i bought a external zip 100 drive from officemax (where i work) for $30 a while ago. i have used it once, and prolly wont ever again. should i keep it just in case, or should i sell it on ebay for maybe like $20-40. how long till zip 100s are as obsolete as floppies?

I would sell it while someone still may want it....lol
If you have a cd burner..there is no need....you can use a rewriteable cd or cd seeing there so cheap.

You can pick up a 128mb USB Jumpdrive this week for $10 at officemax...

I had a ext. zip before.....i threw it out...i had so many issues with it and bad disks it was unbelievable...

the only reason i bought it was to transfer data between school (mac) and home (windows and mac and linux), cuz zips are way easier to carry around and just slip in, but yeah ill get rid of it
