Quality of refurb units?
I don't current have an iPad, but want one. I've been debating waiting for the iPad 2, but at a minimum that sounds like it will be several months away. However, I just discovered Apple's refurbished section and I like the prices there.
What is the typical quality of buying refurbs from Apple?
My only last decision would be 32 or 64.

32 should be fine - unless you will have long length periods where you are away from your ipad and cannot resync with iTunes. I have heard several people happy with their refurbished apple products. I personally cannot speak for the refurbished items.
I'm perfectly happy with my refurb. $429 for 16gb WiFi. There's no way you would ever know it wasn't new. The warranty is the same as new.
However, ONLY get a refurb from the Apple Store. 3rd party refurbs are a whole different ballgame.
Agree with Bob, I have always hears good things about the refurb units. They come to you as new! Same box and packaging.

Agreed. Refurbished units are of the same quality as new units. They even come with a new battery.
Yeah at this point in the life cycle if i where to by one i would get a referb without a doubt! Also its an ipad there is not much that could be wrong with one! And if you ever do have a problem, not created by you, apple will gladley replace it for you!
i bought a refurb macbook from them and have not had any problems with it

i have heard it said that buying a refurb can be better than buying new because it has gone through quality assurance twice

I purchased a 64 gig wifi iPad a month ago from Apple.
It's awesome. I recommend getting the 64 gig because you cant add to it later.
This my 3rd refurb unit purchased from Apple and all have been perfect.
I highly recommend Apple refurbs.
Apple Refurbs from the Apple Store are ALWAYS the first place I look. Time Machine, iPod Touch, couple other smaller items, they all are top notch and you will never tell that the are refurbs. Even have the same warranty and extended warranty options. And I agree that they very well tend to be even better than the new because of them being updated to the newest components since the original builds.
Just today I ordered a 32gb refurb. It seemed to be the best deal in the price I wanted to pay.
