There are even more testimonials from people who says that there is practically no difference between a brand new iPad and a refurbished model both concerning technical features or appearance.
Most of the people even if they understand that from the technical point of view a refurbished iPad may work even better than a new one, are concerned about the scuffs and scrapes that may appear on the used one. This is where the Apple policy makes wonders because all the scraped cases are changed and the refurbished products look just as the brand new one.
Another great thing about refurbished iPads is that they get a new battery to so you don’t even have to worry about that.
The economy you are making with a refurbished iPad is amazing: from $500 down to about $80. I understand why up to a point you would think that is something wrong with those refurbished products. But if you stop and think for a while you are paying that enormous amount of money just for being the first to touch that object. Is it really that important to you? Or do you just want an iPad that works and looks exactly the same as the new one?
It is true that not all refurbished products have the same quality and there are a lot of scam refurbishing firms out there. But with Apple products, really I can’t see a reason why you will buy anything but refurbished products. Of course, in order to be completely safe you should buy it from their stores. They even have a special section for refurbished items on their online store.
And if you are visiting their refurbished online store pretty often you will notice that Apple’s inventory is changing over time, and with a little of patience you will get eventually exactly the product that you are looking for. And you know what they say, better than an Apple iPad you will find only a refurbished Apple iPad!
I know that a lot of people are using the phrase “cheap IPads” but to me this is not entirely true. Cheap make you think of less quality and refurbished iPads are nothing but the best quality. It’s only in your head really, this stuff about buying new things in shiny boxes. If you would really be there and assist at in the making process you will see that there is really no difference at all between a new apple product and a refurbished one. And you will be so angry that you will have paid in the past so much extra money only for the idea of new.
All those being said, if money isn’t an option, go for the refurbished model only for the simple fact that it has passed a rigorous verification process before it has been sold by Apple. And you still get a one year warranty on it.
The only difference between a new iPad and a refurbished one is the box it comes in. Buy a refurbished ipad from amazon
