Don’t Mind Last Year’s Tech? Apple Offers Refurb iPad for $349
So the big news today from Apple is the new iPad 2. It is thinner yadda yadda, lighter yadda yadda, has more ram, has some cool new software, Scoble loves it, it can get you dates, it can help you balance your checkbook, it can help you fix a flat tire, there’s nothing it can’t do. Brad McCarty at Next Web has a recap of all of today’s iPad 2 announcements including the seriously cool case that can be folded up into a stand.
Last September, I posted about a variety of refurbished iPad deals at the Apple Store. At the time, the refurb iPad 16GB WiFi model was available for $449. Today they have lowered the price to $349 or $150 less than the new iPad 2. The Apple Store has all of the details. The prices range from:
- $349 for the 16GB WiFi model
- $479 for the 16GB WiFi + 3G model
- $529 for the 64GB WiFi model
Apple notes regarding their refurbished Apple iPad devices:
- same 1 year warranty as a brand new iPad
- all manuals and accessories
- a new battery and outer shell (to me this makes the device look brand new)
- a new white box (ha!)
So if you don’t care about the cameras, the thinnerness (new word!) or the lighter weight of the iPad 2 and still want to get in on the action, you might want to check out a refurb iPad original. You can call it the Classic iPad like Classic Coke.
