    I own a 1000 and just recently picked up a 3000 new for $90 at Target. It's not a permanent hack, but hacks just as well as my 1000 does and was easy to do.

    I've got a PSP 1000 and a PSP Go. Both work pretty much the same, the 1000 has a perma hack and the Go has a temp hack. Takes a few seconds to load the hack on the Go, but after that it works just like the perma hack. Basically I'd recommend a PSP 3000 or a PSP Go (the most important factor is the form factor. The PSP Go also has 16GB internal memory, but the PSP 3000 can get a Memory stick pro duo adapter for microSD cards and thus more than enough space (2x32GB or 2x64GB are both possible if the need should arise).

    PSP 3000 is amazing - I have the Assassin's Creed Bloodlines one and hacked it with CFW on Firmware 6.60 - it's definitely a great way to go. I like still being able to play UMDs which the Go cannot, and because I can play UMDs, I can obviously buy used games. :D

    If you do the CFW on the 3000, the PSP will boot in un-hacked, official firmware, and all it takes is loading the quick hack file included with it after installing the CFW. http://wololo.net/installing-pro-cfw-on-a-psp-3000-psp-brite/

    Is there something complicated with sending stuff to Turkey? I know Italy has a bad reputation of lost mail so many ebay sellers refuse to send it there.

    i don't why but a lot of sellers refuse to send to Turkey. i bought about a hundred stuff from abroad and only 1 was lost in the mail. though i can't be sure that seller really sent the item or not.

    also if the seller sends it tracked, it is nearly impossible for the package to be lost.

    i guess not being a part of EU plays a major role in that lack of trust.

    Well if that is the only problem I could send you a PSP for cost, if we can find a way to do that without too big leaps of faith on both sides (maybe Paypal helps with that, I don't know).
    Some stores in my town still have new PSP Gos and want to get rid of them for about 110 Euros. I don't know what shipping costs to Turkey, but I could find out. Unfortunately I am just out of a job, so I would need at least a partial payment in advance. PM me if you are interested, maybe we can work something out.
