Hi guys,

A few days ago I found a website that is selling cheap iPads 2 50% off. It's cellularintelligence.net
The thing is that I'm not sure if they are legit or not. I couldn't find anything about that company on google (was looking for fraud infos). I was wondering if someone could confirm it for me before I decide to buy it from them. Thanks!

I would stay away from anything like that (50 percent off). Usually some kind of scam.

Well, just checked out that website - certainly looks legitimate but cannot believe their pricing on the iPads, e.g. I have an iPad2 Wi-Fi 32 GB - the cost at that website is just $349 (trying to determined if the iPad is a refurbished one and what the warranty may be?).

Now the same 'refurbished' iPad2 from the Apple Store is $499 (HERE), only a $100 savings - hard to believe but will keep my eye on this thread for further comments - my wife keeps 'eyeing' my iPad - :D

Did you ever buy the Ipad? I am in the same situation as you and I am concerned about the legitimacy of this site.  Please let me know any information you have about them. Much obliged.

I looked at the site and on the front it looks ok I suspect they are shipping out of china direct but cannot confirm. Only users whom have purchase would know where the product was shipped from. One just has to be careful when you see deals like this as the products are under cost.

I don't trust anything like this. But apparently iPhoneKing87 joined this forum today just to post in this thread twice about how great the site is and happens to have ordered from them and knows 3 other people who coincidentally have also, with one even receiving it yesterday, defying all odds of miraculous timing!

Yeah, sorry....I would give it a pass. A very wide berth. You know the old saying: if it's too good to be true, you're just being paranoid so be sure to give them your credit card because everyone's on the up-and-up and there are no scams on the internet.

I wouldn't risk it... Just buy one from retail. Seems all too fishy and the 3 hasn't come out yet. If they are legit, I question if those are refurbished. If so, I still question how they are managing to sell a refurb for that cheap...

If this is a good reliable place to purchase then go ahead.

I will be straight to the point dealer margins are about 5% sometimes retailers will discount 10% but rare as they loose even major retailers like best buy may get an extra 2 points but that is it.. So how can this on line site sell at 40-50% off and survive. Some times when you order on line you are in fact invoiced for hong kong and you become the importer plus responsible for GST or sales tax. As far as I am concerned the red flag is up and unless I receive more information about this site I would be very very careful before parting with my funds. It is possible they are in fact refurbished iPads which makes more sense. This is my personal opinion only.
