    Hi everyone, What's the consensus for the best deal out there on a 16GB wifi iPad 2? I'm not interested in a used iPad but would pick up a refurbished one.

    I've been searching tonight and here's what I've found:

    Apple Refurb: $349 before corporate discount
    Micro Center (new?): $360:

    I had never heard of Micro Center but I saw them recommended elsewhere on this board. Is there a reason their price is so much cheaper than Apples? There site says they are an authorized reseller. Is it really a new product?

    Are there any cheaper options out there that I am missing?

    Just noticed that the Micro Center deal is in person only and that isn't going to work. So is the Apple refurb option the best deal out there? Anyone?

    There is only one factory refurb and thats from the factory, Apple.

    Looks new, reasonable price, full warranty, and eligible for Apple care.

    Agreed. Stick with the Apple refurb.
    I've bought two Ipad2s and 1 '11 MBP from Apple "refurb" w/o any issues.
    You get all the benefits of a "new" purchase and you save $$$.
    Can't beat that.
