    Looking at the IPad 2 at $399, it seems a bit over priced, seems to me apple should just get rid of it, and if someone wants a budget ipad they should go for the IPad Mini.

    Yes it is Overpriced at $399 !!!

    pretty sure the iPad 2 will be Obselete come 2013 and should be priced more at $149 to $199

    Bunch of Ipad mini lovers here.

    Ipad 2 at 399 is not overpriced. Its resales value is higher than Ipad 3.

    If Ipad 2 should be $199 then ipad mini should be $99.

    It might be overpriced but it shouldn't in anyway cost less than an iPad Mini.

    I agree with you but you'll be surprised at how many people would go for it in the store :eek: - there is nothing wrong with it (still got one in the house we use it all the time) but at $399 vs. $499 it's a no brainer. Heck, even the $329 mini is a hell of a lot better deal!

    Now, a refurbished iPad 2 vs. brand new iPad Mini, then that becomes a little harder to decide.

    A refurbished iPad 3 is $379, so yes, it's overpriced.

    Depends on how well you know your priorities and your usage of them. Even if they were the same price. Do you value a bigger screen or portability more? How important is Siri to you?

    Overpriced for whom?

    From a consumer's point of view it seems like poor value.

    From a corporate customer in the middle of a rollout of ipad2's (or ipod touch 4's) to the field, the price is less important. Apple would no doubt prefer to stop supplying old hardware, but that would annoy the corporates because their IT folks would then have to support two types of hardware (as well old-style dock AND lightning accessories). So instead of cutting off supply abruptly, Apple has priced them to deter further purchase whilst giving corporates some time (and incentive) to figure out a migration plan (to iPad minis?)

    I'd say that's exactly the conclusion you're meant to draw.
