Apple cuts refurbished iPad prices: mini starts at $249, 4th-gen cheaper than a new iPad 2 (Update: iPods too!)

From 9to5Toys.com: Update:¬†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.

One of the most highly touted features of the new Google Chromecast is its price tag, coming in at just $35. The Apple TV retails for $99 (Amazon sells it for $96) but includes a more expansive feature set including full mirroring capabilities, a beautiful user interface, physical remote and an abundance of compatible streaming services. In a possible reaction to the low Chromecast price, Apple has dropped a refurbished Apple TV 12% down to just $75 with free shipping. Although, this could be a planned price drop as Apple typically re-evaluates their refurb prices as products go through their life cycle. No matter the reason for the drop, at $75 with a 1-year Apple warranty this is our pick for the best current Apple TV deal. expand full story
