    My friend offered to sell me his PSP, seems to be in good condition, but is missing the battery. Not sure if it's worth buying, it seems to be a PSP-1001. I've actually been looking for a PSP go, but if I can pick this up cheap, I won't really mind.

    Looks like a 1000, the original model. Still fully-hacakble and plays all PSP games, but only has half the RAM of the later models so Skype and some homebrew things (PSP game save states, PRO-online, maybe more) don't work on it.

    I'd say it all depends on the price tag. I'd hunt down the price of a replacement battery to see how much you're really gonna pay for it to get it working.

    I second Rydian's post - it'll be good for games, however homebrew will be limited to using 32MB RAM only. It's usually best to hunt down early 2000 models or go straight for a 3000/Go, but if "The Price is Right", sure - go ahead. Games are going to work just fine, you're only missing on Skype.
