If you were holding out for refurbished iPads before you make the leap to this new technology, now’s the moment you’ve been waiting for. Apple’s now offering certified refurbished models in their online Apple Store. With the huge demand for iPads, we’re not surprised that a couple of them found their way back to Apple for repairs.

You can now get an iPad at a $50.00 discount. As of this writing, the 3G models are not available yet, but we’re sure it’s only a matter of time before the devices show up. Apple’s provided a nice little touch, adding a brand new battery and outer shell for the iPad, so you don’t have to worry about getting a scratched up device. It’ll look brand spanking new.
