    Does anyone know why the wifi versions hold their value more at resale?

    I I've just completed a bit of research and have found that the 16 wifi only version of the iPad retain their value more. The more storage you have and 3G facility the less its worth at worth at resale. Does anyone know why?

    This is not true, there is no reason why the specific model would hold its value at resale more than the others.

    Well I've checked quite a few of the companies that buy iPads to resell in e uk and it certainly appears true. I always buy the 64g 3G and lost more than half the price at resale.

    Maybe the wifi model is in higher demand?

    The wifi version would appeal to a broader audience. The 3G Is limited by the provider it is programmed for (AT&T, Verizon).
