iPad 3 16GB £315.00 (and others) 64GB is now £439.00 and 64GB+3G is £539 -"refurbished" @ Apple Store

*** 28/10 update: 16GB and 32GB BACK IN STOCK ***

http://store.apple.com/uk/browse/home/specialdeals/ipad

The iPad 4 may be coming out, but the 3 is still a fantastic tablet with the ultra high resolution Retina display and one which will be supported for a long time yet.

Now reduced by £84 (~ 20%) at the Apple Refurbished store. It's worth noting these units are indistinguishable from new and include the full warranty. Actually, as previously, they're probably just unsold new units due to the new model and not even refurbished at all.

This makes it cheaper than the non-Retina iPad2! It's also the lowest price this has ever been.

Full range available including the 32GB and 64GB, plus 3G options. For example the fully specced 64GB is now £439.00 (£120 off) and the top of the range 64GB+3G is £539.

Originally released March 2012

    "refurbish"

    yeah right, these will be unsold/cancelled order new ones

    get these now because as of tomorrow the next batch will be used returns

    If they are cancelled before sending out surely they would be sold as new again? I'm sure there will be lots coming in over the next week or so that have been returned but ordering now doesn't guarantee an unused return. Unused returns will probably start coming in in numbers as off tomorrow.

    They dont sell them as new anymore. The only thing they could be used for is to replace damaged ones under Applecare. It is unclear whether Apple will replace anything taken in now with this iPad or the new one. My guess is like for like

    It's usual for Apple to just move existing stock of products they change into the "refurbished" category. They don't sell replaced product ranges as new, even if the devices were never used.

    New or not, these "refurbs" will usually come in a different, plain, box like this:

    Excellent find. Ordered. Thanks

    So am I right in saying Apple will literally open up (for arguments sake) 500 new / stock iPads, chuck the retail box / packaging away, then repack them all in white boxes and sell as refurbished?

    Never buying another ipad. When it's full you're stuffed. Filling a 16GB will not take long.

    You can keep most stuff in the "cloud" these days, music, books, apps and only use space as needed..

    That said I went 64Gb for £439 :)

    Indeed but not everybody wants to use cloud. I bought into Apple initially but now I am fed up with Apple's whole business plan. They make great products but seriously how useful is a 16GB tablet. With the price of SSD falling so quickly, where's the 128GB tablet?
    Only tablet I would buy now is one with a card slot or USB.

    As a (previous) 16GB iPad owner I get your point, however recently the cloud made it much more useful, I've moved all my music there and barely use 1GB for it now. All my videos are on a cheap NAS too. So plenty of space left and a very useful tablet.

    Now with 64GB I don't know how I'll fill it all!

    The problem with SD and USB slots on tablets is they're always limited. Other platforms like Android don't let you move apps to to SD cards for example, and having USB sticks sticking into tablets all the time misses the point entirely.

    wow that was quick to phase out the Ipad 3. Good price though. Heat added

    Nice. 32gb for £369. Bargain.

    I see the space argument - but in that case buy big.

    I have a 32GB iPhone 5, and will shortly be getting a new iPad 16gb to replace my current 16gb iPad 2.

    All my music goes on the iPhone - so the only space I really use on my iPad is for apps/pictures/videos (and if I watch a film on there I always delete it afterwards) so I never come close to filling it! All depends on your preferences!
    If this were my sole device, I'd be going for at least a 32gb or 64gb.
