Engadget notes that TJMaxx is carrying iPads for just $399.  That’s a huge discount over the pretty standard $500 costs that traditional stores all over are offering.  It isn’t clear if these are refurbished models (which would fit with the pricing) and TJ Maxx’s rep.  According to Engadget, they are showing up in stores in New York and Ohio and some stores are supposedly holding back their inventory for Black Friday

I wonder how long it took to convince Steve Jobs that putting iPads on TJ Maxx’s shelves was a good idea.

Update: Some Marshalls stores are carrying iPads for $399 as well.
