iPad 3 (white, flat, finger on Safari)

Folks in the market for a high capacity-model iPad will be happy to hear that Apple has begun offering refurbished versions of its 128GB tablet in its web store at a nice discount.

Over the weekend, the top-end storage model for the fourth-generation iPad popped up on the company’s website, in a variety of configurations, at up to $140 off their original prices…

At the time of this writing, Wi-Fi models in both black and white are available with estimated shipping times of 5-7 business days. There’s also a white AT&T model shipping in 5-7.

The Wi-Fi only version of the 128GB tablet will run you $679, and the + Cellular $789. As noted by MacRumors, that’s the cheapest either has been since they launched earlier this year.

For those unfamiliar with Apple’s refurbishing program, it’s very highly regarded. Portable products like the iPad get a new back and battery, and come with the usual one-year warranty.

Of course, we’d recommend holding off buying a tablet if you can, for at least the next couple of weeks. Apple is expected to unveil new versions of both the iPad and iPad mini in October.

    Spending a few bucks more on the bigger, faster & lighter iPad 5, plus waiting for it would totally be worth it!!

    Store all my flac music on there ! Although I would rather on an iPhone because of more portability.

      iPod touch 5G has the best DAC and audio signal quality..

      • wicked4u2c

        I know. I would rather Dock out from iPhone or iPad for filterless as long as it I can browse web and listen.

      • bigtalk

        im an audiophile so ipod touch 5G is the only option

      • wicked4u2c

        I understand I can see, but would probably dac it out with V-Moda’s rather than on chip wolfson.

  • Ooooo, I can haz 128 GB of iTunes media…oh wait, I got a 2 TB HDD for a fraction of that price…pass.

    • Qiren_94

      So you can listen to your music and watch your videos directly on your 2TB HDD? Seriously?

      • Yes I can, ’cause my tablet has got a USB port….not my fault Apple refuses to keep up with the competition.

      • Abdl

        Carrying your Tab and your hdd all along like some sorta businessman or journalist….?!!

      • Don’t see what’s wrong with carrying an additional 1lb of stuff with me in my backpack, ready when I want it. Perhaps you’re some weakass link that you can’t bare the weight?!
