    I might end up picking up a retina Mini after the announcement if the prices are right. Does anyone remember how much refurbs drop after the new model is announced?

    I'm also considering refurbished, maybe an Air or even a 4.
    Guess we'll find out soon enough.

    Just bought a refurbished iPad 4 for $299. Only difference is the box, otherwise it's a new iPad.

    This is something I'm also looking to do in upgrading to a retina mini 32GB. There really isn't a fixed price Apple drops the refurbs too like they do when they drop previous-generation products down $100. I wish they would, as it would be easier to gauge. Right now the retina mini discounts are $60-130 off retail depending on the configuration. My best guess is that these will stay the same, but be reflected off the new retina mini retail price.

    I just picked up two refurbished iPad Mini 2 64GB for $349 each - seeing that before the announcement the 16GB was $339, this is totally worth it.

    The iPad Mini 3 is not worth the extra $ for just a touch ID.
