With the introduction of the new Retina display iPad Mini and iPad Air, Apple didn't discount only the original iPad Mini and the iPad 2, but also the refurbished iPad models. The refurbished entry-level first-generation iPad mini can be yours for $249, $30 down from $279 which means it is $50 less than the original iPad Mini, priced at $299. The price cuts have been applied for all Wi-Fi and Cellular configurations, not just the entry-level version.
The iPad 4 with Retina display now has the $379 price for the Wi-Fi only 16 GB version, which means Apple took a nice $120 off the original retail price of $499. It is also $20 less than the $399 iPad 2 that Apple has decided to keep in its offer. The refurbished iPad 2 is priced at $319, $80 off the original price of $399. All the refurbished iPad units come equipped with the standard one-year warranty.
