Apple Starts Selling Refurbished iPad Mini Tablets
Of course, none of those device run iOS, and if you're already heavily invested into Apple' ecosystem, there's some obvious value in sticking with your platform. The iPad mini is also remarkably thin and light while retaining its premium polish. So, if you're in the market for an iPad mini but on the hunt for a deal, check out Apple's new selection of refurbished units.
As it stands, the only model that's currently available is the 16GB iPad mini with Wi-Fi + Cellular for Verizon in black. In refurbished trim, it's selling for $429, which is $30 less than retail (a 6 percent savings). That's not exactly a significant price break, but it's about the cheapest you'll find, and it comes straight from Apple. It's worth noting that even though it's refurbished, it's like getting a brand new device. It comes with a fresh new battery and outer shell, and all the retail trimmings, including a 1-year warranty.
Not digging this particular model? Well, now that the iPad mini has been on the market for awhile, it stands to reason that other models will soon be offered up in Apple's refurbished section, so keep your eyes peeled.
