    I found the best deal last year on my iPad two weeks before Christmas in the Apple refurbished store. I have never had a problem with my iPad .
    Apple gives you the same one year guarantee as a brand new one.You can also purchase AppleCare for your product if you feel it is necessary.

    I remember last year, a couple of days before Thanksgiving I got an email from Apple telling me to be sure to go to Apple.com on black Friday. When the day arrived, Apple had an iPad mark down of something like US$100 and free engraving. Anyone else recall this sale?

    I don't remember that. That's weird though, Apple never changes or discounts prices.

    I do remember the same deal Black Friday only,I passed on it . When I decided I wanted one that is when I looked at refurbished iPads. The price was lower I believe about $50.00 for the 16g wifi compared to a new one.I waited and none were left. When I went back they had them and had taken another $20.00 off. That's when I jumped on the deal .

    That's refurbs though.
    I don't know if the OP cares but personally I want a brand-new device that hasn't been used and then wiped off and sent back out for resale. I just feel like something might go wrong.

    But this isn't a thread about me. So, Apple discounts refurbs on black Friday, I guess?

    Now, now Grayson, Apple do not just wipe them off and sell them on. What you get is an "As New" machine at a bargain price, check out this link for more details as we do like "good" information here http://store.apple.com/uk/browse/home/specialdeals/refurbfaq_popup

    Just to back that up, I have bought both an iPad and a White MacBook from the refurb store and you would not be able to tell them from new.

    I can confirm the same. I've purchased several Apple refurbished products over the years and no one could tell the refurb from new except for the box they came in. Same one-year warranty as new and eligible for Apple Care (extends the warranty to three years). I've never once regretted buying a refurb from Apple (or saving hundreds of dollars! :) ). The only downside is that you have to wait if you want to buy something introduced fairly recently...and you have to jump on the more popular products as they're usually only available for a few hours from Apple's website.

    Yeah... Yeah... Apple runs their quality control magic on them.
    I guess I am just weird about it. I just feel like something that didn't show up during the quality check will go wrong and I will be out of a device for a few weeks while my device gets fixed. And that can be detrimental because I use my iPad for everything at school and I can't risk loosing notes and stuff for a few weeks.

    But this isn't a thread about my refurb fears. :)

    I don't think I've ever seen brand new apple products discounted. Apple is very strict regarding their pricing and protecting their image, could be wrong but I dont recall seeing discounts.
