As you know, retail on that ipad was $730, before tax. I have one just like and would not consider selling it for $450.This guy wants to pay $450 for my Verizon 32GB iPad 2. He won't budge at $500. I need someone to tell me I'm not an idiot for selling it at that value.
That's nice. It's also largely irrelevant. With all due respect, buyers don't care what you paid, they look at their options in deciding what they're willing to pay. Figure on a probably $100 price cut on new and refurb ipad2 beginning tomorrow at Apple.com, maybe more at Verizon if AT&T does like they did last year (clearanced 3G ipads at $200-$300 off list). Those are the prices that matter, as they represent the buyer's alternatives.As you know, retail on that ipad was $730, before tax.
This is probably the best advice, if you can wait. There will likely be a flood of used units on ebay and CL over the next couple weeks if this year is similar to last year.Another thing to consider is waiting & try to sell it a couple weeks after the iPad 3 launches.
Turn the question around -- when you go buy an ipad3, would you spend another $450 on a used ipad2 to keep on the shelf as a backup?What's the point of selling the iPad 2 64Gig 3G for $340.00 +tax less than you paid? You would be better served keeping it in the house as a backup. Why is everyone so quick to sell an old model?
This. Is stupid. If you listen to this guy you're goin for a loss. Sell as soon as possible to get the higher price. $450 is a great price. After the announcements your resale value is gonna drop no matter what apple prices the 2nd gens at.Wait until Apple's keynote tomorrow; supposedly, the iPad 2 will still be sold at a reduced price. If that's true, then check the prices for the 32GB 3G (if the model is still sold, and if not, compare it to the model being sold and adjust accordingly) and price just slightly under Apple's price.
