I was looking at picking up an iPad 2 as the prices have dropped then I looked into buying an even cheaper refurb directly from Apple since the 1st gen models are nicely cleaned up. According to Apple's website, refurbed iPad 1's come with a brand new shell and battery. This is in the blurb on the website so you're getting in my book that's pretty much as good as new machine. However, I cant see any such statement regarding refurbed iPad 2 on their site. There is no mention of a new shell or battery. Is that because the case is un-removable even for apple or do you get some new parts in that model too?
