Now that Black Friday is long over, you might feel sorry you didn’t get any of those discounted iOS devices on November 25th. Don’t worry too much - if you’re okay with using a refurbished iPad, now seems to be a good time for it. Apple has just slashed prices on its latest tablet by $80 to the pretty affordable $419 for the basic 16GB Wi-Fi-only version. Both the black and the white versions get the discount, and when bundled with the free shipping, that’s a truly temptive offer.
iPad 2s with more memory - the 32GB and 64GB Wi-Fi-only versions - also got their prices slashed to $499 and $599 respectively.
The same sweet discounts are also applicable to refurbished iPad 2s with 3G connectivity. You can get those now for $80 to $100 less than the price of a brand new device. For all of the products, the standard one-year Apple warranty applies. Is this enough of an incentive for you? Hit the source link below, if so.

soooo, pay $500 for a new device, or fork over $420 for a used one. That's still more money then I'd be willing to spend on a used device.

That's an awesome deal! ...Wait... No it's not. It's still $200 too much over its smaller yet capable-of-everything-the-ipad-2-can-do brother, the ipod touch. Why doesn't anybody realize that its the same exact thing as an ipod touch only way more expensive, less portable, but... has a larger screen? No thanks.

Tho it is less portable, I could never give up my iPad. It is much easier to get around everything on, and it is just plain convenient. Granted, I would have never paid full price (my college paid for most of it), but now that I have it, I love it. -Sent from my iPad 2 :P

I used to think the exact same thing. Until ive used one and seen how useful they really can be. it depends a lot on whether you have a use for them. they help college students a lot and its also nice to play some games they offer in full screen. i dont think its needed but it is something nice to have.
