Our Deal of the Day today is the Apple Store - Original Apple iPad Cheap!.
Offer: With the announcement of the iPad 2, Apple has heavily discounted its remaining stock of the original iPad. You can get recertified iPads for:
16GB Wifi iPad [refurbished] - $349
32GB Wifi iPad [refurbished] - $429
64GB Wifi iPad [refurbished] - $529
16GB 3G iPad [refurbished] - $479
32GB 3G iPad [refurbished] - $559
64GB 3G iPad [refurbished] - $659
Remember, factory refurbished iPads carry the same warranty as new ones and are essentially (but not legally) new.
Keep this in mind if you are scouring Craigslist for a cheap used iPad. The cheapest I saw was $349 for a 16GB wifi version. Prices should drop even more as the month progresses.
Alternatively, if you want a cheap Android tablet, consider the NOOK COLOR. These have been rooted and custom ROMs have been made. They also have one of the best displays with 7" LCD running at 1024x600 on a IPS panel.
