$850 for an iPad 3 16GB WITHOUT 3G
Are you kidding me?
How bad do you REALLY want it?
Notice it's being sold in Princeton where the per capita income is one of the highest in the USA.
You'd be surprised at how much things sell for on craigslist. The markup isn't that crazy, really. I sold a 32 gig wifi last year during the ipad 2 craze for $900.
I really can't believe people pay this much more for something they can have for about half the price if they wait 2 weeks...
I'm not a scalper but statements like that make me tingle.
FYI iPad 3 scalpers in London are already at it. Check these ads out:
Where would you expect them to list an $850 iPad, Camden?
What's worse is that on ebay their selling refurbish iPads 2 16gb wifi models for $525CDN when Apple sells them for $369CDN or new for $419CDN.
I also have a 3rd gen (32 gig wifi) on craigslist right now, but I just wrote give me an offer.
Have had zero offers so far
Patience is a virtue for a reason.
why post so early on craigslist? the people that respond now will probably flake on you by friday morning as more people dump theirs for sale...
For that price, I'll be willing to sell my new 32 GB en route.
It's the truth... I plan on keeping my ipad but if they are selling for $300 above cost, then I'm willing to sell it and wait 3 weeks to get a new one. I can't just ignore $300!
If you live in a $4 million apartment in China/HK/etc. that doesn't really matter
keep us posted
Craig's List is mostly full of mouth-breathers, especially when it comes to overpriced tech items. But, what's worse, is that the person will probably sell it.
woohoo might be able to get a free ipad 3 if prices stay this high
especially when I still have my iPad 1 & 2. I wouldn't mind upgrading to new 64 GB + 4G.
i was planning on selling on of my iPads. Look at this guy selling it before it even gets here on ebay.
another guy locally selling his iPad
The eBay guy already has 6 bids, with a high bid of $650, for a 16GB model, really?!
the thing that sucks about ebay is the paypal fees AND shipping. i just posted my white iPad 64 gig LTE - Verizon on craislist for $1500. Let's us see how many people will bite.
I plan on selling my 2nd one I bought. Originally it was for my wife but she's content of keeping her iPad 2. So Im gonna sell it, but if the money isn't right, I'll just return it for a full refund. Both mine are being shipped FEDEX so since I work for them, I will more than like have access to it early. Im gonna post it on CL a day early that I have iPad 3 in-hand and see who wants it early for $$$, if not I will just return it.....But i have a feeling once my wife sees mine, she is gonna wanna keep her new one after all...Stay tuned!
P.S.: OP, $850 is a realistic price he will prob get for that 16GB. Some people have enough money to where they don't care about over paying on prices. Im not saying its the smartest thing but if you have the cash it doesn't matter. For the last 12 years i have been paying $500-$750 for unlocked smartphones, so to me its not unrealistic for an iPad for$850...You should see how much unlocked iPhones go for when they 1st are announced. A 16GB new iPad will sell for $850, of course thats contingent on selling at the right time. The best thing about america is its a free market and the market will determine the price. No one is putting a gun to any buyers head forcing them to pay premium.
I have already seen them on ebay sell for more. Check these babbies out. $4500 for three, $1600 for one. 16GB Wifi $900 Local Pick Up Only!
I'm probably going to wait a month or more for mine, but there's just a tinge of a craving to go out and try to buy one at the Apple store on Friday for the chance that I could make $100 or more through Craigslist. It's just that it would make me feel
gross, and waiting in line for an iPad that I have it in mind to scalp would feel awfully hollow.
But kudos (and eww) to the people who can do that and feel okay about it!
I like you. You're one of the good ones. And nice sig.
