Thanks for this OP! I have been shopping for a new iPad for sometime now, but the mini is coming soon, or the newer model, I don't know. How does anyone ever keep up nowadays?

Save $50! buy a refurbished IPAD
It would be nice to have that in the title too.

For 3G versions, do I need special data plans or any plan would work?

I have a prepaid Tmobile data plan w.o. tethering...

You need a micro SIM card. The iPad doesn't take normal size SIMs.

For iPad 2, you should go with a new unit since it's likely to use newer processor(32nm) than refurb.

2 points.. new is not much more,,,and there is NO ipad 3,,,,and C: why are there refurbed "the new ipad" already....hmmmmmmmm

Thank you for being incredibly anal.

And there are refurbed iPad 3s because when you sell 3 zillion of them, some will be clunkers. And some people will have buyers remorse and say that the falange next to the doohicky isn't working properly. They will be accepted for return even though they are functioning properly, returned to the factory, tested, and then sold as refurbed.

Wish they'll have the Wi-Fi only iPad 2 for $315 again.

I have micro-sim, so I would be fine to use the Tmobile prepaid data plan?

If purchased directly thorugh Apple online or at one of their stores you don't need a excuse to return. You can return any Apple product within 14 days no questions asked. Also Apple returns are not sent back to Foxconn. They are processed and refurbished in the US.

It makes more sense to buy a new IPAD 3 from a retailer that doesn't charge tax in certain states (MacMall, J&R, B&H, etc)

just got a iPAD3 at Target for about $419 last Sunday. Had a price match, $30 Target Gift card, and used the Target CC to save 5%

I'm not so sure about this anymore. I'm actually a diehard Apple refurb fan, refuse to buy anything but. But I've bought three iPad refurbs in the last two weeks (plus 4 or 5 Macbook Pros and lots of iMacs in the last couple years) and they all ship directly from China. So while its probably not Foxconn doing the refurbishing it doesnt appear to be domestically done anymore, which I used to really like.

Still, price savings aside, you have arguably a better product in the refurbs than the brandnews since if anything those have seen far more actual human attention than ones straight off the assembly line.

You would be wrong. Refurbished iPads are shipped direct from China.

The iPad 3 was up on eBay's daily deals yesterday, brand new for $469 and free shipping. Seems to pop up there a lot.

gekman--what ad did u compare it to

I've been watching these for awhile but recently decided to go with a Nexus 7 instead. No regrets so far.

Other than checking FW hourly... is there a way to get notified via email or rss when these 16gb iPad 2 refurbs are available again? =)

Picked up a refurb iPad3 16GB wifi for $379 today at Apple Store. You can sign up for alerts at http://www.refurb.me/us/ to find out when (and if) they are back in stock.
