I'm currently in the market for a used Vita (search eBay and craigslist), and I was wondering what important things I should ask or look for when on the hunt. Is there important information I can find within the system's menu (ex. number of charge cycles, hours played, etc.) or is there a life expectancy on a system I should be aware of. Any advice/tips help.
Unless it's cowboom at 129.99, Don't bother.. if it's a friend; ask for a receipt if possible.

I actually did snag a $130 Vita off cowboom this morning and am going to see its condition. Worst case scenario I can return it after the potentially big Sony announcement on February 20th (price drop or new version of the Vita?). I plan on picking up Persona 4 Golden in the meanwhile.
My main concern at this point is that I'll need a memory card that could also end up benefiting from a price drop. I have a PlayStation Plus subscription and would like the 32 GB card to get the best bang for my buck.
