Apple Offers Refurbished iPad Mini and 4th-Generation iPad for First Time

Apple has listed the 4th-generation iPad and the iPad mini on its Refurbished store for the first time. There is an extremely limited selection currently, but discounts are $30-$40 on the mini, and $50 on 4th-generation iPad models.

$30? Why bother? Apple is going to have to do much better than this with all the new Android tablets coming out.

lol @ people whining "not enough discount"

you really would pay $40-50 extra just for a pretty cardboard box? :eek:

If you put a new and refurb unit next to each other you wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

When a refurbished unit is sold, does that count towards the "total sales" figures that get cited?

If so, then aren't refurbs getting double counted, once when it is sold new the first time, and again when it gets sold refurbished the second time?

My impression is that Apple sells a LOT of refurbs.

Target 5% from RedCard already covers that difference anyways. And yes, I like having a new product, tearing off the factory seal.


Apple Refurbs are as good as new. I have purchased many. Never experienced anything other than a like new product in a different box.

However, I'm certain Apple would rather you purchase the "Real Deal." :rolleyes:

And? I signed up with AT&T for a two year contract with my iPad mini and got it for $359. Sure, I have a contract for two years, but thats how long I keep my Apple stuff :) By Gen 3 of the iPad Mini, there will be retina and I am sure lots of other goodies :D:apple:


This does not seem like a good deal seeing you can get a $700 iphone for $200 by signing a 2 year contract...
