back to article Apple cuts iPad price

Apple has knocked £100 off the price of the first-generation iPad. Undoubtedly a move to clear the shelves before the arrival, on 25 March, of the new version, the upshot is that buyers can avail themselves of the older, thicker, heavier model for less. The 16GB Wi-Fi only is now £329, down from £429 - which is what the 16GB …

    Quick way to make some cash this, sell a ton of iPads on ebay with a 24 hour auction, undercutting everyone by 20-30 quid and still make a profit.

    Advent vega - I have one and am using it now, a great piece of kit for £249. Apple need to get the new ipad at £329 to show a bit of respect.

      Since when did the 'premium' product on the market only cost up to a third more than the cheapo?

      Sometimes the difference is twice or more.

    Oh please

    The Advent Vega is more suited for geeks than normal people. I mean you have to install a custom ROM just to get any functionality beyond the basics..

    Just ordered one

    I'm in the US, but a refurbished, clearance first gen 16GB iPad 3G cost me $479. Not bad at all, for what it is. I didn't really see what was supposed to get me so excited in the iPad 2.

    Front facing ipad 2 camera will actually be of some use though I don't doubt.

    Unlike the front facing cam on my Samsung GT, where no working Android apps have been released to utilise this. Well Tango kinda works, if you can live with not actually being rightway up on the screen (90 degress seems to be the standard displaying of your "avatar").

    Just checked the UK Website

    And the new prices are in place, but not on their reconditioned units which are now mainly more expensive than the brand new ones. Must admit if an official refurb 16 GB unit were to get down to £200 I might actually be tempted.
