    I've not bought a refurbished iPad 2 but I have a refurb iPad 1 along with a refurb MacBook, both were excellent buys and aside from the box they come in they were indistinguishable from new......I'd recommend any Apple refurb.

    It varies, you just need to keep an eye on the refurbished section on Apple.com store page. I've had some pretty decent discounts.

    I bought a refurbished MacBook Air. Works great.

    If you can wait, you'll see a price reduction on iPad 2 once the iPad 3 is released. Perhaps even before the actual release. We should get an announcement in Feb.

    I just got my refurbished Ipad2 10 days ago. 16g wi-fi+3G. It came packaged just as a brand new one would. The only difference you will notice is the shipping box. It states refubished unit. Apple installs a new back and battery after it passes their QC. It carries the same warranty as a new one. So far everything works as advertised, why wouldn"t it? and if not back to apple it goes.

    Apple does great with their refurbished products.
    I would suggest always buying a refurbished iPad over a new one.

    I wanted a refurb and called Apple to enquiry. Bubba there helpful as he was said they had none in stock. 2 weeks later out of the blue Bubba called me saying they had one of the exact ones I wanted in stock as a refurbished product!

    Great customer service and a great product. It's as new as far as I'm concerned

    just got my refurb on monday. ipad2 / 64gb / wifi+3g. indistinguishable from new. very happy, so far.

    @tbaker... price discount on the ipad2s looks to be $80-100 across the line of models. ipad1 models are really limited, but discount is higher. price will probably drop once the ipad3 is officially announced or at least when they start to ship.

    I have been looking for a refurbished ipad2, 32gb, WiFi only, on the Apple Store site for over two months. there have been none listsed. Is it going to be an impossible task to get one from Apple?

    You just need to keep trying, in the UK they normally have some listed........don't give up.

    I just checked the store and they have 16gig iPad2 available in black or white. I have bought a refurbished iPad2 32 gigs back at the end of November 2012. This size iPad is very popular. There are 32 gig iPad 3 available I just checked

    Thank you, Gabriel and Matt... I look several times a day, and I wil keep doing so. I don't need the 3G, retina display, or Siri. It's for my preschool grandson for educational videos, etc. just wonder if 16gb will be enough for those apps.

    Refurbished apple products are better than original in my opinion, (they have actually been tested more thoroughly to ensure they work, they don't want to get the same device back again.)

    I think a 16 gig iPad is enough for a pre-school person. I'm way past pre-school, I have a 32 gig wifi iPad 2, and after a year of owning it, it still has 20 gigs storage space. It has over 80 apps, over a 100 songs, over 200 pictures, and several ebooks. Save time and money and buy that child the 16 gig iPad! LOL.
