That's a really good deal. In fact, it seems like it might have been stolen if it were that cheap. You can sell Minis now for 200 used, probably even more boxed.

It seems suspicious, actually. But if you know it was certified non-stolen you could resell it for triple of what you spent. Or just, you know, use it. It's a great device and the new ones won't be as light.

Got it on Ebay. It was actually $98.69 but Ebay sent me a $40 off coupon on any item, maybe because I sold like 15 things on there in the last 30 days. So it ended up bring $58.69. However the seller is new. I'll keep you guys updated and post pics when it comes in.

Seller is new meaning zero feedback meaning no ipad for $98. Period.

Not true. I was new to eBay, and just sold my iPad mini. I sent it out same day and the buyer seems happy. Some of us are just newer to eBay, even though my account has been open since eBay started.

Was yours brand new for $98? Didn't think so.

NIB 1st gen iPad Mini's are going for $250-$280. Prepare to file a paypal claim.

Sounds like when I tried purchasing 2 brand new iPhones a couple years back. It almost seemed like it was too good to be true. Shortly afterr sending the money, the seller stopped responding to me and things escalated pretty fast.

I second the paypal claim :p

I doubt this is legit, but hopefully you paid through Paypal, at least you can hopefully use your buyer protection.

Curious, care to send a link to the auction page?

and sometimes when you hear hoof beats, it turns out to be zebras rather than horses.
