    Yes its a real good deal if you don't care for the retina display.

    If you need the space, yes.
    If not, go get the 16gb so you get the 1 year warranty.

    The retina display will only be noticable if you have the iPad 3 inches or closer to your face.

    Good deal for the seller. Considering you can buy new with warranty for a little more than used with no warranty.

    go to www.mac2sell.net to find out. I would offer somewhere between the price of a refurb at www.refurb.me and the price at mac2sell

    I wouldn't pay more than $350

    Lol, you're so terribly wrong. So very very wrong, you sound like you just bought an iPad 2 so you are trying to trash the new iPad. How can you try and talk down a 2048x1536 9.7" screen?

    Honestly, and I am not slating the iPad 2, because I have loved my iPad 2, it STILL is fantastic. However, when I upgraded from the 3GS to the iPhone 4, and then looked at my old 3GS a few months later, it was unbearable. It looked really bad compared to the retina display. I think something similar will happen with the iPad 2 as well.

    No.

    Sacrifice the storage space and go with the new iPad.

    I live in reality and don't need to escape to an alternate state of mind to believe scientific fact about resolution and distance.

    I sold my 32GB iPad for $400. I think it's a good deal considering the great condition and original packaging.

    what he meant was (The retina display will only be noticable if you don't have an iPad 2 to sell) like he still does.

    If you have terrible eyesight then this is true. The difference between a retina iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS is easily noticeable even at a foot away.

    That doesn't mean you need a retina display of course, but the best way to convince yourself it is not better is by never looking at it in the first place.

    To the OP: It is a fairly mediocre deal IMO. I sold mine for $450 with smart cover and dock in perfect condition with boxes 2 weeks ago. With the price drops the iPad 2 32GB will be going for $500, refurbs will be even less than that and still have warranty.

    Of course it also depends on your location. In large cities prices will be higher and it is a decent deal.

    But two things were different here: 1, the new ipad was not announced a week ago. 2, apple was not offering brand new iPad 2 for 400 dollars.

    Just keep in mind that those who supposedly sold their iPad for $___ amount have no proof.

    I could easily say I got $600 for my iPad when I sold it to a man at the airport about to board a plane who wanted one but didn't have the time to go to the store/shop.
    He was rich and money was not an issue.
    No one here can confirm or deny I got said price.

    You could get it for much cheaper on Craigslist!!! if you buy from the Apple Store you have to pay extra for the Tax... The $100 dollars off only waivers the Tax!

    yeah.... sorry bud. you need glasses. the difference between the 3gs and 4 was unbelievable. There is an enormous difference between the early displays and the retina and is completely visible. Retina display is a dream come try to any videophile or photographer or anyone concerned with clarity.

    Based on these responses, someone got a real good deal for mine.

    I sold my 64 GB White 3G AT&T iPad 2 for $450.

    No wonder it went so fast :D
