    I was online looking at the refurbished iPad 2 and saw special pricing 399 for iPad 2 wifi + 3g 16gb. Does anyone know the price before this offer? :D

    How come they don't have any refurbished iPad 3? Do you know when they'll offer that?

    Thinking about picking up another iPad. Thank you :D

    They don't offer refurbs of current generations until shortly before the introduction of the next model.

    Seems April/March is the time where Apple introduces a new iPad but they've been known to change the time before (iPhone got pushed where the iPod event normally is; Sept/Oct vs June/July).

    In fact I would seriously doubt the iPad 3 would show up in Q4 of this year since its holiday season and I'm sure Apple would want people to buy them new instead of refurbed.

    I would guess Q1 2013, but remember the end of the world is supposed to happen in december so you might never get to see the iPad 3 in the refurb section. :D

    such encouragement! :eek: :D

    Do you know what the price was on the refurb before this special offer?

    Okay, I think I see it. Save 120, 24 percent off.
    Never mind that's the original pricing brand new.

    That's a good deal. The 3G 16GB refurbed model was either $449 or $529. I forget which.

    Hi everyone. I went out and decided to get another iPad 3.
    I am a bit bummed. When I opened the box the item was not brand new... It was dirty with crumbs and a few permanent scuff marks. I called the store and told asked them if they're selling used items and saying it's new and I will be in for a NEW one. :mad:

    That's my story for now.

    I did it clean it a bit so the crumbs and dirty marks are gone. The scuff marks are still there.

    What would you have done?

    Scruff marks? Definitely take it back. I'm not even picky either but when you pay that much for a new device it better be nice and new.

    As for your other question I believe the previous price was $400 for the refurb 16GB. As far as I know the "limited time offer" isn't really limited in the sense it only lasts a week its limited as it lasts a couple of months (if not longer), I know the nano has been on its special price for about a year now.
