It wasn't even that price on Black Friday.

I could see it being the 3rd gen iPad going from $429 to $399. But, I don't get why they aren't advertising the 32GB or 64GB proce more, those are the ones I would think people would buy.

And here's another twist on this story. LA times says $399 for 3rd gen ipads....
I'm so confused now.

It looks like all the sources are running with the same incorrect? info and no source is listed.

Everyday is repost day on the internet. I cringe when you only hear it from a single source. Here is a fun one...

So far no one here has been able to confirm it. Those who have actually gone to Walmart found that there is no knowledge of the sale.

So far I haven't been able to find any confirmation that iPad 4 is on sale for that price. I hope it turns out to be true because then I'll definitely get one as that's a great price.

Note that this is only for personal accounts. I tried to upgrade my work phone last night at BB and the retailers can't do business upgrades.

SAD Verizon and ATT!

Yes, this story is rather embarrassing for the "Apple is a luxury brand" crowd....

Hey people will turn anything into FUD these days.

I'll say again Walmart discounting iPhone means nothing. If it was AT&T, Verizon or the Apple Store turn people would have something to talk about.

See and its because of companies like this that everyone and their mother has an iPhone. Miss the days when the iPhone cost you a pretty penny.

doh!

I just this morning put in an order for the ipad 4 wifi at Apple.com. Too late to cancel. Anyone know if they charge a restocking fee if I return without opening?

$127 for iPhone I can confirm. iPad I cannot.

I don't believe Android products are better (except the huge screen factor, Apple is too stubborn and a lot of us switched away from iPhone for screen size issue alone), but with the price of Nexus 4/7, Google is forcing everyone to lower prices to compete. The difference is Google doesn't need profit on hardware to win, once Apple loses the profit margin they will get wrecked.

Sorry Apple fans I really believe Apple stock value will be very similar to Google/Microsoft three years from now, and that is a 50% drop vs the current valuations . . .
What sort of bizarro math are you using?! Apple has a current forward P/E ratio similar to Microsoft at around 8.5 (which is crazy low...except Apple's future is currently brighter than ), while Google is at 15. Factor in the fact that Apple pays a 2% dividend while Google pays none, and Apple stock is technically a very good buy. Heck, if you run the numbers and assume that Apple growth stays flat from here on out, it should still be priced higher than it is now.

Why would you order from Apple? Even without this Walmart Deal, Target is offering it for 499 plus a $50 target gift card. Microcenter also has the iPad 4 for 459. I was able to price match at target so I bought mine a couple days ago for $459 and got a $50 target gift card.

It would be nice if the Apple Store would match Target and give you a $50 iTunes card, or match Microcenter's price.
