    I'm planning to pick up a refurbished iPad 2 3G AT&T within the next month and was wondering where I can get the best deal?

    I unfortunately missed out on the 16GB 3G model for $399 from Apple's online store earlier this month. Do you think a similar bargain will be offered in the near future?

    Thanks a lot!

    Apple refurbished products are considered by most to be a very good deal, as they're pretty much like buying a new Mac, except for the box.
    • Apple Certified Refurbished Products are only available from the Apple Refurb Store and are not sold by any 3rd party or local Apple stores
    • Educational discounts do not apply to refurb products.
    • Refurb products come with the same warranty as new products, and qualify for AppleCare
    • Refurb products have a changed serial number that identifies them as refurbished
    • Refurb products come with whatever OS version and software they originally shipped with as new
    • Refurb products come with the same items in the box as new products, only the box is a plain one, not the new box.
    • A refurb product could have some cosmetic signs of prior use, but rarely do
    • A refurb Mac may have some cycles on the battery, but not a significant enough amount to affect usable life
    • The refurb store inventory changes frequently, sometimes several times a day, and doesn't have any direct relation to upcoming product releases. What's available in the refurb store is determined by what has been returned to Apple.
    • If you're looking for a particular item, can alert you when it becomes available.

    Thanks a lot for the quick answer. looks like the ideal resource to keep track of prices. Way more convenient than checking Apple's website throughout the day.
