Tech: Get A 16GB iPad 2 Wi-Fi For $419.00 Shipped

Specifically, the online Apple Store has the 16GB iPad 2 Wi-Fi for $419 shipped. That’s for the black model, though you can also get it in white. Either way, it’s the lowest price to date on an iPad 2.

These are refurbs but don’t let that give you the slightest bit of pause. Except for being packaged in brown cardboard instead of the fancier white box, Apple’s refurbished iPads are indistinguishable from new. They have new outer casings, new batteries, and a full one-year warranty. Indeed, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: when it comes to Apple gear, buying new is a waste of money.
