    It's now flooding with iPads. People are trying to get $450 for a 16 gig wifi. Apple is selling refurbs for $349. Its hilarious.

    I have even seen some people make posts advertising the the Applestore price.

    I see a few for $275 and such. Those will get sold.

    I sold mine last week for $400.

    Psyched for my iPad2

    that seems pretty fair.

    I'd say as of today the 16 gig wifi should be fetching $300 if its in immaculate condition with original box/charger/cable. and a really nice case.

    even less come march 11

    You bring up a good point. It's not super easy to see the refurbs on Apple's site. There might be a few suckers who pay $450.

    I'm going to start lowballing people down to $100 so I will having something to play with in line on the 11th.

    I'll just use it as a coke mirror once I get the iPad 2

    Would you purchase a 32gb ipad 1 3 months in with case and receipt and camera connection for $350?

    I want the iPad 2 so that my wife and I can facetime when I'm away and with our families, but that deal sounds too good to pass up. What is the expected iPad 1 value 2 generations out (ie when iPad 3 comes around).

    I went on craigslist tonight looking for some cheap prices and notice they are extremely high as well.....I guess the general public is behind on the new prices.

    I sold my 32GB for $400. It was my 1st offer and I wasn't trying to play the haggle game. I cut my losses and just sold it.

    That's the problem. Too many iPads are sold! -ha

    the people selling them for $275-$300, don't they think it might not be bad just to have a $275 item themselves?

    It just seems at that price, you might as well keep it.

    Yeah because it's their fault that the buyer offered to buy it at the asking price...

    Got $465 for mine. I was pretty stoked. I guess if you do the math it will only cost me around $60 more to get the ipad 2 (16GB). Can't say its a bad deal.

    Are you guys new to craigslist lol? You don't lowball yourself when you're selling something. You list high and wait for the emails(there will be emails). If someone takes your high offer, score! If not, you look at all the emails from the people asking "will you take $xxx for it?"(you're going to get these even if you lowball yourself because CL people LOVE to haggle), choose the highest offer and seal the deal.
