From 9to5Toys.com: apple-store-refurbished-ipad-mini-9to5macUpdate: Refurbished iPods are getting some price drop loving as well! Apple has knocked $30 of the price of iPod Touch 32Gb 5th generation models. They are now available for $219 with free shipping or in-store pickup. That’s $10 less than a new 16GB iPod Touch, which doesn’t even have a rear camera.

In light of today’s product announcements, Apple has slashed the prices of iPads in its refurbished online store. The first-generation iPad mini now starts at just $249, a drop of $30 from the previous refurbished price, and $50 below the new retail price. All other configurations received either the same $30 price drop or a $20 dip. If I were in the market for an iPad mini today and wasn’t willing to pay the Retina premium, I would most certainly opt for the Apple refurbished mini and save $50.

Also, the refurbished full-size iPad 4th-generation with Retina Display is now priced at $379. That’s $20 below the current retail price for an iPad 2 and includes a Retina Display, Lightning connector, and souped-up specs. It is without a doubt a better purchase than the nearly three year old iPad 2. Models with WiFi + 4G connectivity received at least a $40 price drop as well.

Apple refurbished devices are generally regarded as “good-as-new” by past purchasers and come with the same 1-year warranty as their new counterparts.
