Buying Apple-Certified Refurbished as close to buying brand new as you can get.
Brad's Deals Editor David,
Get an Apple Certified Refurbished iPad Mini 4 16GB (in silver) for $279 plus free shipping at Apple Online. That's $50 less than a new one and Apple Certified Refurbished iPads include the same one year, extendable warranty as a new iPad, as well as a brand new battery and outer shell. It runs on the A8 processor and features the very high resolution retina display and a finger print ID home button. Sales tax is charged in most states.
