Apple has dropped the price on some of its refurbished iPads, offering an additional $50 discount on the iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G and the third generation iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular.

Earlier this month, the entry level iPad 2 with 3G capabilities was priced at $399, but now the tablet can be purchased for $349, a total savings of $180. The entry level third generation cellular iPad was previously priced at $459, but can now be purchased for $409, a total savings of $170.

The price drop applies to all refurbished second and third generation iPads with cellular capabilities, regardless of storage capacity. With 32GB and 64GB of storage, the iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G is priced at $429 and $529, while the 32GB and 64GB versions of the 3rd generation iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular cost $499 and $579.

Apple is not offering further discounts on the Wi-Fi only versions of the second and third generation iPads, which remain priced at $319 and $379 for 16GB, respectively.

As always, the availability of refurbished products from Apple's online store is subject to rapid change. Refurbished units include the same one-year warranty as standard products, plus a new battery and outer shell.

Thanks, Phil!

It's been awfully quiet in apple land - think the have something up their sleeve or just spec bumps and thinner bezels?

I think they may be working on something bigger because it is just bad business to hold off this long on almost all product updates and only delaying the tick tock upgrades that Apple has become dreadfully known for.

Or is it a return to the focus on software that made OSX so great originally? Tough to say.
Or they were projecting a disappointing holiday season, so products that were originally planned for Q1 '13 were released in Q4 '12?

I'm very happy to see Apple begin to reduce & adjust prices to a more competitive level. It's a great way to make it possible for more people to buy Apple products.

Especially since its my opinion that Apple does an outstanding job on refurbished units. While I cannot speak from first hand experience, those people I've come in contact with over the years,that do own refurbs speak highly about them.
