Introduced last October, the iPad mini and fourth-generation arrived in Apple's online store for refurbished products in mid-March at modest discounts. The company's 128 GB fourth-generation iPad models introduced in early February have yet to appear in the refurbished store.

Rumors have indicated that Apple is unlikely to launch its next versions of the iPad and iPad mini until late this year, but the company has apparently still decided to reduce pricing on refurbished units of the current generation in order to attract more buyers as its supply of refurbished units has undoubtedly grown over the past several months.

Update: Apple has also knocked $30 off of the price of its refurbished Thunderbolt and LED Cinema Displays, bringing the prices down to $799 compared to $999 brand-new.

Not sure if I would say the prices were "slashed" maybe use "moderate discount" instead.

Many local stores sell NEW for $299. I would pay the extra $20 for new.

MR, don't use the verb 'Slash' when talking about a 6-10% price reduction. Makes you look desperate.

Hopefully iOS7 will help the iPad be more useful as a content creation device. I think there is a lot of potential for improvement in that area. Louder/better speakers would be a plus too.

Haha yes, I was expecting more like 20% or more to consider "slashed".

I was expecting a shocking price with the title...a modest reduction.
Though I guess on the larger ones it is close to $100 off REGULAR price.
