    Not that I've found. I've checked the education side of the Apple Store and didn't see any discount available.

    Ok Thanks, didn't think they would!!

    Another way of getting a cheaper iPad i thought is getting refurbished one but their are not any on the apple site so i don't know whether they are offering them.

    How do you expect a price drop when production can not meet demand? Huh

    apple has sales for back to school, but the iphone/iPad most normally doesn't go on sale.

    There is little chance of discounts with the iPad. Heck, they do not even list the iPad on the refurbish items. I can expect them not having any refurbish units in stock, but to not even list them, says a lot.

    Yeah, this.

    They are going to use any possible refurb units for warranty replacement, nothing else... at least not for quite a few months to come.

    It's been 2 months since the release, I think it's far too premature to expect there to be anything "used" on the market.
