Hey guys, getting an iPad 1 refurb, with which I'll frequently be typing. I'd like to get the bluetooth keyboard - if I wanted to get the best deal on one (without compromises in functionality - ie. outdated version etc) where would you suggest looking?
Or would you recommend I just bite the bullet and get it retail from Apple?

Either ebay via seller best_buy_outlet or sometimes www.macsales.com has used/refurb versions in their Specials section.
I bought an Apple Wireless Keyboard from macsales.com in January for $50 delivered. It's the MC184 version, not the earlier one. In fairness I use it with my MBP when using an external monitor and haven't gotten around to pairing it with my ipad.
More recently I picked up a magic trackpad vis the best_buy_outlet ebay seller for around $50 shipped. I'd previously bought a MBP 60W power supply from them and was happy.
In both cases the packaging was non-existant, but the devices were clean, not torn up, and more importantly work just fine.
