    on Oct 24th I ordered a refurbished IPad 3 at the Apple site for $379. It is coming from China, so there is a good chance it may even be an new, unsold IPad3. Can't believe other sites are still asking $499 for the 16gb version. When will the prices drop?

    Very true! I bought mine whilst on holiday, together with a case. Made a massive saving on both items. I now buy all my IT stuff when in the States and find a general rule of thumb is that what you pay in dollars there, you pay in pounds sterling in the UK.

    Perhaps not a financial Advantage but if bought from John Lewis in the UK it comes with a two year warranty, and their sales service is second to none

    Very interesting Thomasp, I have just started using John Lewis. I will have a scout around in future as it is just that bit nearer than the Apple store.

    Hmmm though. I did come up with this one at Walmart, where the better prices would be assumed. They want $399 for a refurb, (not new) white 16GB Wifi only which is actually $20 more than the Apple Store refurb. They also are out of stock as of this writing. And it seemed to be the best price I could find overall. So my thinking is that a refurb at the Apple Store might just in fact be the best deal and the Apple Store of course does not sell the 3 brand new anyway.
    Purchase the New iPad, 16GB for less at Walmart.com. Save money. Live better.

    You can try palshare.org if you can be patient. They have the ipad 3 64GB for $250 shipped. It's listed as $200 but they charge $50 in shipping. They're perpetually out of stock at this price. I kept trying day after day for a week and a half before I was lucky enough to finally snag one. They have an annoying survey fill out you have to do but hey, at this price I didn't care.
