    That's very good...I'd be inclined to put it away, you never know what might become collectable, and a brand new one, boxed is mint.

    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.

    Dang. You got more than a steal. You made out like the federal government!

    How did you get this? Was this from a penny auction?

    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.

    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

    By all means keep us updated. I hope it works out for you but it could be a scam just as easily.

    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?

    At that price, I would open it just to make sure the person didn't put a rock in it and then seal it back up.

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