    Hi, i'm new to this site and I would like to know where besides ebay is a cheap place to buy new or secondhand iPad 2? I'm not in the US but I might have someone who can buy it there for me.
    Thanks in advance

    Personally, I wouldn't touch eBay with a 10 foot pole for high value items; too much chance of getting burned.

    However, if you go ahead make sure your payment is protected. I know Visa is OK, not sure about PayPal, and stick to trusted vendors.

    Alternatives are refurbished units from Apple, if you want to save some money and do it safely.

    Sorry, next time I'll read the question. I see you already discounted eBay. Mea Culpa.

    Well, there's Kijiji. That's all over Canada. Don't know if it's international.
