Apple didn’t just introduce two new iPads today. The company also discontinued the model it introduced just half a year ago. That means you can now pick up refurbished models for as little as $379 from the Apple Store.
That’s a pretty spectacular price for a tablet with a 9.7 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel display, an Apple A5x dual core processor, and 10 hour battery life.
Of course, the reason Apple is marking down the price is because the company just introduced a new model with a faster processor and an entirely new docking connector.
In other words, if you pick up the older model, you may not be able to use some newer accessories designed to work with the new Lightning connector. But there are plenty of keyboards, adapters, and other peripherals on the market designed for the “old” model, so if you’re looking for an iPad that’s nearly as good as the new $499 model, this $379 version is a pretty good deal.
