The price drop is currently only available on Refurbished iPad’s, but in all honesty they are just as good as buying a brand new one- you just get a better price.
I’m a huge fan of buying refurbished products because they are often cheaper, and come with the exact same warranty as a brand new device. Whatever problem they had with the device before has most likely been fixed and if the screen or anything was damaged, they’ve replaced it. The best part about any refurbished item is that if you buy it and it does break down, 9 times out of 10 they’ll just replace it with a brand new item. At no additional cost! Apple gave my Dad a brand new iPhone 4 after his refurbished one started acting up.
So if you are in the market to buy a tablet PC, but don’t need the latest and the greatest the OG iPad is a great choice. You can buy the Refurbished iPad from the Apple Store.
The 16 GB WIFI only model is $299, and the 32GB and 64GB models are $399 and $499.
