Apple cuts prices of refurbished iPad 2s
Just in time for Christmas, Apple has dropped the price of its refurbished iPad 2s by $80, which means you can now grab a sweet returned iPad 2 for as low as $419. These are of course items that have come back to Apple retail stores or otherwise not been sold due to defects, but they've been fixed up, tested and certified, given a brand new battery and shell, and are good to go with a one-year warranty.
Sure, I bought my iPad 2 brand new, but I also spent another hundred bucks or so (I also went with the 32 GB -- the $419 price is for the 16 GB model). But if you're panicking about getting a sweet tablet under the tree this year, you won't find a better bang for your buck.
