Apple came out with the iPad 2 today, and to completely suck the oxygen from the room for all other tablet PC competitors, they’re blowing out the old iPad models with hefty discounts.
How hefty? A hundred bucks off on the base 16GB WiFi iPad (now $399 on Apple’s Clearance page.) If you want to go even cheaper, they also sell refurbished models of the same specification for $349. The refurbs come with new outer shells and batteries, so they’re just as good as new models.
If you’ve been waiting to pull the trigger on one of them iPad thingies, but you didn’t want to drop half a grand on one, now might be a good time to get one. Here at Castle Frostbite, we’ve all been enjoying the 32GB WiFi iPad we bought last year–it really is a terrific little device, tons of fun and surprisingly useful. (I’ve even written a few novel chapters and short story bits on it.)
