Refurbished iPads from $349, free shipping
Tempted by the “cheap” Android tablet you see advertised online? Take a deep breath and consider an Apple Certified Factory Refurbished iPad first, which comes with free shipping, a full + extendible AppleCare warranty. And, the icing on the digital cake is the App Store and the 100,000-plus iPad apps.

If a 3G iPad is on your mind, picking the 16GB model for $449 might seem the better bet. However, I would peg the sweet spot as the 32GB version for $529 — double the capacity for $80 more.
