    Try a refurbished unit from apple. They are better then new.

    Better than new? So they tape a $50 bill onto a new one and send it to you?

    No. But where else are you going to get a 'new' iPad 1? The refurbs are the closest to new and some people claim that they are actually better then new due to there detailed refurb process.

    GameStop buys and sells iPads. You can likely find a "GameStop Refurbished" iPad 1 with some calls or by searching their website and locating inventory from online.

    Try Cowboom. I have been seeing a lot of deals posted on their site related to first gen iPads.

    I've purchased three 32GB 3G iPads from Cowboom.

    iPad #1 was in physically great condition, but the screen had some SLIGHT issues. Slight discoloration in certain areas and some backlight issues. However, there were zero scratches on the screen. 1 dead pixel. Barely noticeable. Warranty had expired

    iPad #2 was in great shape all around and the screen was in great shape with 1 dead pixel. There was 1 tiny nick on the screen. Warranty expired.

    iPad #3 was in overall great shape with one small, fine scratch on the screen that is not visible during use. There may be some burn in on the screen which I find odd, but I can only detect it when facebook is loading. This iPad was never registered, so I was able to register it as new and I have a full one year warranty now.

    The prices varied from $220 to $240 plus tax. Overall I've been pleased with them and delighted to have a warranty, but I wouldn't count on being that lucky.

    These were all considered condition grade 6 on the web site.
