eBay opens refurbished Apple gear outlet
Prices are also conveniently reduced, so you can get a device like the third-generation Wi-Fi Retina iPad with 32GB of storage for $469.
On sale right now, eBay has MacBooks, Macs, iPod touches and iPads.
With iOS devices keeping their price steady for nearly their whole lifetime, getting refurbished devices is probably the best deal around, especially given the strong quality control they pass. And if you can’t find what you are looking for on the eBay Apple refurb outlet, you can also head to Apple’s own refurbished products center.

Apple should just open their own Refurbished Outlet for product returns and open a separate outlet for Re-Refurbished or Re-Returned Apple Products. But, what would they really name these two separate endeavors?

So they can charge a premium for used products and add to their pile of cash? No thanks.

how bad can refurbished be, when even their brand new ones have a ton of defects?
