Walmart iPad 3 $449!....really!!

Went to Walmart earlier today and saw that they dropped the price of the iPad 3 16 gb wifi model to $449! Not bad huh?! Anybody else experience price drops like this at your local Walmart?

Considering the iPad 4 is $50 more, it's not as good of a deal as you're making it out to be.

Actually the 4 was only $10 more if you got in on the target $40 gift card deal.

Not at all... Considering you can buy mint used ones too like mine for 400 or less.

Arguably though, the 2 makes even less sense now, I'll give you that.

An iPad 3 would have to be $350 before I would consider it at this point. The 4 is at least $150 better just for the extra battery life.

I've always wondered who on earth would think that's a deal.

Now I know.

On Sunday, an Apple rep was on QVC, selling a 16gb wifi iPad 3 with a truly disgusting array of "accessories" for $779. Made my eyes bug out!

QVC is really bad. Ive also seen the 16 gb base ipad for close to 800 usd they also had a base 13 inch macbook pro no retina for 1750.

if you look them up they are also "best sellers" from them. thats just scary.

I saw them selling iPad 2's with some horrendous accessories for the same price just a few weeks ago. It was painful to watch.
