    You could try Apple.com, go to the store page then try the refurb link.

    Try Craigslist. I'd be a little cautious though. eBay may also have some, happy hunting!

    How low are you willing to go to buy a used iPad?

    Maybe you should wait a little bit. Since the ipad3 is coming out, who knows how low the ipad2 will go down to. Right now the new iPads are going as low as $70 dollars/refurbs for $80. So maybe a little more waiting might bring it down to your price..and mine!!

    Regarding buying an iPad from eBay or Craig's List, are there any guidelines or "things to watch for" when buying from a non-Apple source?

    Thanks in advance!

    I've never done it, but I'd say just use common sense. If it's too good to be true, it probably is. I'd say eBay is more trustworthy since it's monitored, unlike Craigslist which is just a place to post your own ads. Make sure that the iPad works and doesn't have any problems, etc. Craigslist has its own list of tips and things to watch for on their site. Good luck!

    Wait until the 3 comes out and buy a 2. Prices will dramatically be reduced.

    Do you really "need" one or just an excuse to buy one ;) if you can wait, that would be the best thing to do...
