I have a 3rd generation iPad 16GB with WiFi only and it's in great shape. I need to sell it because of medical bills, so it's unfortunate that I have to get rid of such a great product.

What would be a fair price to sell it for?

As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay (including completed sales), or Amazon for prices of similar models, to get an idea of what a reasonable price may be. Then adjust the price to account for condition, configuration, remaining AppleCare coverage (if any), etc.

If you're listing on Craigslist I'd recommend asking $380 and see where it goes from there....It is hard to pinpoint the value of the iPad 3 to the general public when it was passed on by Apple so quickly after launch.

the market price is $309. anything less that would pretty much be ripping you off since they are in very high demand. I personally recommend selling on www.glyde.com it is very easy, you chose your price, and you get ~90% of the profit. sites like gazelle, you just mail in the device, but you only get $200 for a mint condition 3rd gen. however, if you sell online, like to glyde, gazelle, etc. MAKE SURE YOU INCLUDE THE POWER CORD!!!. Glyde will only give you $121 vs $309 if you dont have the power cord. so if you dont have both the cord and the all outlet, it would be a wise decision to go buy a new official apple one for $29. I would not do ebay because there are alot of scammers out there for iPads. cragslist would be my next option. i would sell around $309 (market price)-$379 (how much apple charges for a refurb ipad 3rd gen). hope this helped;)

Thanks to all...

I have a chance to sell it $325. Is that good?
With a refurbished model available for $379, I'd say sell. Sure you could hold out for a little more, but we're talking 20 bucks tops.

I just did something similar with my 4th gen iPod touch 32GB. Refurbs are $179, and I got an offer for $130 and took it.

Good luck!
