One of the Apple product library’s secret superpowers is longevity. Seriously: Apple has actually run into problems because their iPads simply refuse to die, so users never have to go buy new ones.
That means that their line of refurbished products is actually a solid investment. So if you don’t mind a couple of dings on the brushed steel frame or the perverse knowledge that someone else has maybe watched porn on your iPad, why not take a look at these deals here?
Apple iPad Mini 4 (Certified Refurbished)
The iPad Mini may be small but remember: we live in 2019. TV shows are streamed, video games are a job, and tiny devices pack a lot of power. In this case, it packs a 1.5 GHz dual-core A8 processor and a beautiful 7.9 Retina display. And hey, you know that famous ten-hour battery life that all iPads have? It’s got that too.
Maybe best of all, this particular refurbished iPad comes with an “A” rating, meaning it’s in near-mint condition and has suffered almost no signs of previous use beyond maybe some minimal scuffs or marks.
Normally $799, you can buy yours right here for just $399.
