    That iPad looks like it took a 9mm on its base. What are intending to do with it? Use it for parts?

    I picked it up several hours ago for $25. I think that's a steal. I'm going to replace the screen & use it for school. The screens worse than the pics show

    What about the bottom part next to the home button where it looks like the plastic parts look bitten out? Will you be able to replace that part?

    Easy enough to fix but if there is any deformity in the frame I use a dremel to file the glass to suit.

    No idea, I'm gonna take it to this local shop & see what they quote me on it. That probably explains why the screen moves on its own.

    You're buying an iPad with a damaged screen?

    Edit never mind giving you paid so little. Wonder how much it will cost to repair though

    Easiest way to tell is that it is missing the second microphone on the rear casing- as such, it is a first gen mini.
