Well that stinks. I'd like one too.

But yes, that's a good deal.

That's also subjective. What's considered the best size varies from person to person. The Mini will fit in most jacket pockets, but come summer time you're not going to wear a jacket. I had an iPad 2, and never felt it was an inconvenient size, the 3 is a little heavier and ticker than the 2; I now have a Mini and while its a little more convenient to carry around I do miss the bigger screen.

The only way you'll know for sure is to try it out, but 300 is a very good deal.

Thats a mega steal man. I just bought a ipad 3 16g wifi for my wife from someone on CL for $400. Right now thats about the cheapest you'll find used in excellent shape.
Same one on the Apple store referb site runs $349 but at check out after everything is said and done its $415 and id have to wait for it, my deal was fair.

I wouldn't spend $300 on an iPad 3 whether new or used.

Why not? They are only half a generation old and still perform quite well from what I have seen, plus for a first iPad/tablet its a steal of a deal

EDIT:

Aghhhhhhh. This is an old thread that was cached in my browser
