Refurbished iPad 2s now $80 – $100 off at Apple Online Store

If you’re in the market for a new(old) iPad 2, now would be a great time to pick one up. Apple today dropped their prices on refurbished current gen iPads, with the entry 16GB Wi-Fi model now selling for $419 (was $449) – a total savings of $80 compared to a brand new one. The higher capacity iPads, namely the 32GB and 64GB Wi-Fi (and 3G) models are a $100 off (16% savings). In case you’re uncertain about buying a “used” iPad, just know that they’re all tested and certified by Apple, and include a 1 year warranty, a brand new battery and even outer shell. I’ve purchased refurb stuff from Apple before and haven’t been let down yet (I saved $300 off my 27″ iMac this way). Supply is limited, so it’s entirely possible that these iPads won’t last until the mad rush of the Christmas shopping season.
