It’s iPad upgrade time, but if you’d rather move your old iPad on before stumping up the cash for a brand new one, then eBay may be the place to check out.

As part of its Instant Sale system, eBay is currently offering some surprisingly competitive prices for the iPad 2, with potential sellers not having to wait for a lengthy auction process to complete before knowing a sale is guaranteed.

Depending on your particular flavor of iPad 2, you could be looking to receive anything between $290 and $475 via Paypal, assuming your device is in good condition…

Price-wise, a 16GB WiFi iPad 2 will net sellers $290, with the 32GB version raking in $340. Finally, the 64GB model is worth a whopping $420. The addition of 3G to the equation will result in a bounty of $355 for a 16GB version, $380 for a 32GB model, and a sum of $475 for a 64GB AT&T iPad 2.

It’s true that sellers could potentially receive more via a traditional auction, but this offers a quick fix and we all know us Apple fans don’t like to wait for anything!

Whether Instant Sale or auction, it may be worth pulling the trigger sooner rather than later. The more people that offer their iPads up for sale, the lower the price you will inevitably receive. It’s a buyer’s market folks!

Will you be selling your iPad 2 via eBay?

  • Won’t sell my iPad 2 because it’s jail broken and I enjoy the options that gives me for customization. Same with my 4s. But I can totally see why someone would sell, new iPad screen looks amazing.

  • Wow this story has a bullshit misleading title. Far to vague to let readers know which model one can expect to get that kind of cash for. Typical exaggerated, purposely vague news title no better than the bullshit AP headlines.

      Well, they of course want to sensationalize the situation to attract more readers ( cheap imo too). Yes, the ethical intentions (if any) may be questioned.

    • maybe it is an intelligence factor. the title is pretty straightforward. UP TO 475$. is that really so confusing to you it’s pretty spot on.

  • they really don’t give any room for leeway do they? either it’s perfect or it’s dead. they need to give a middle ground. somehow mine got dented in the lower right corner…of course on 3/7. prior to that it was in pristine condition because i baby my apple stuff. not sure how it happened…was fine when it went into the book bag in it’s protective case and such. when i took it out there was a dent. 🙁 i didn’t drop it, didn’t drop the bag…so i dunno. but they need to factor in more than just “perfect” and “dead” because there are more than 2 realities out there!
