iPad 3 - refurbished?

When will the iPad 3 refurbished be in the Apple refurb UK store?

Any ideas how much these will cost?

not for quite a while, and probably no more than 60 off

yup not even worth the wait. here is what you do: buy 2 ipad 3s, sell one for a profit, and your net price on the leftover ipad 3 will probably be cheaper than what the refurb will be.

How can I sell an iPad 3 for a profit? What do you mean?

We don't know. But think a week until launch, then fourteen days for anyone returning their iPad and then at least a couple of weeks to a month for it to go through Apple's system. I'd say at least 6 weeks, but probably months.

the chances of these things selling out within the first couple of days is very high, so you can buy one from apple for about 550 after tax and easily sell for 50-100 more than the retail cost on craigslist. use that money towards your own ipad 3 and there you go

I just bought a refurbished iPad 2 32Gb Wifi for just a tiny bit more than the price of a new 16Gb iPad 2 wifi. Very excited as it's my first iPad.

I never buy new Apple stuff. In fact, I bought my early 2008 iMac in late 2009 and it's still running smoothly.
I'm a poor sod, but at least I'm a happy Apple camper !
