refurbished ipad mini drop

After introducing of the new iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display yesterday, Apple lowered the prices of its refurbished iPads across the board. The entry-level (first-gen) iPad mini, for example is now just $249.

That’s down $30 from where it was before the new iPad announcements, and $50 less than a new one, which Apple dropped down to $299 yesterday. And don’t worry, Apple has discounted its full-sized tablets as well…

As noted by MacRumors, Apple’s fourth-generation iPad with Retina display is now available for as low as $379. Again, we’re talking about refurbished units here, and this price is obviously for the 16GB Wi-Fi model.

At that price you’re looking at a $120 discount. Not bad. And for those wanting a Cellular model, they start at $409, which totals $170 in savings. Apple also has iPad 2s on hand, which start at just $319 for Wi-Fi only.

If you’re unfamiliar with Apple’s refurbished program, it’s actually quite reputable. The company gives you a brand new shell, and battery, and protects it with the same one-year warranty that it offers on all new devices.

We realize these are older models, but for folks who don’t care about the latest and greatest, looking to score a solid tablet on the cheap, these are some of the best prices we’ve seen. Act fast, supplies are usually limited.
