Curious if the remaining stock of iPad 3s will decrease in price by $100 or so.

Thoughts?

Apple selling refurbished iPad 3. They probably pulled remaining new iPad 3 And recycle the screens to have available stock for refurbished iPad 4 exchanges in store.

I'm thinking like Walmart or Target. Places like that. I sold my iPad 2 a few days ago and got a Note 10.1...now I am considering returning this Note. I'd be fine with the iPad 3.

A lot of people who've ordered refurb ipad through Apple recently reported that their orders are shipping from Shenzhen, China.

Personally, I think Apple is selling new ipad 3rd gens as refurb to cover a drop price and clear stock so they would not have to make an official price drop and disappoint a lot of people. Just my thoughts. It would also save $$ on ink to print the pretty retail boxes. Sent from my iPhone 5.

Well, they have already done that with the announcement of a 4th gen.

Price drop?

My 3 week old iPad 3 is now practically worthless.

Yea I'd say that's a f**kin' price drop.

It's practically worthless? Are you insane? The new one has a processor bump, a new connector, and a 12W adaptor. Yours didn't magically stop working. SMH.

And if its 3 weeks old, return it.

The patern I'm noticing is that the US folks are having little trouble returning their recently purchased 3's for 4's, even those over 30 days.

Here in the UK however, there's much, much less tolerance for returns in general. Where in the US they'll say "sure, you're a valued customer, we'd like to keep you happy". Here in the UK it's more like "stick it pal, you should have waited".

Yea I'm pretty upset over this...

I was able to return mine for a full refund after 3 weeks and im in Canada. I showed them my online order for the refurb and asked to reduce the price.
