Refurbished iPad 2 Models now Available at

It seems the trend of discounted tablets isn’t over yet. Word on the street is that HP is gearing up for another production run of its TouchPad slate, and even Amazon sounds like it wants to get in on the action.

But if the obsolete tablet or the rumored beefed-up Kindle haven’t peaked your interest, you might be happy to hear that Apple’s online store is now offering refurbished iPad 2s at a decent discount…

The Cupertino company is knocking $50 off of its latest tablet, as long as you don’t mind that it’s refurbished. Ok, so the deal isn’t as appetizing as Apple’s previous offering of $100 off its original iPad. But hey, a sale is a sale.

To reiterate, Apple’s remanufactured products are head and shoulders above the competition. The tablets receive a new back, battery, and they come with the same one year warranty that new ones do.

As usual, refurbished products are subject to limited quantities and frequent stock changes. As of this writing, refurbished iPad 2s are available in both black and white, and in several GB/carrier combinations. Deal, or no deal?
