Apple today lowered the prices of its refurbed iPads across the board. The Original iPad 16GB Wifi is now down to just $279. Meanwhile, iPad 2s are down to starting a base price of just $319, a price drop of $30 over previous $349 clip. Higher capacity iPads are dropped as low as $50 over prices set when Apple debuted the new iPad in March.
One reason for a drop could be Apple’s move to a “new iPad 2″ with increased battery life due to its more efficient processor which may be worth more than a $50 premium at #499.
It is going to be hard to find an excuse not to get mom that white iPad 2 now, isn’t it?
