Now that the new A6X one is out, the refurbs just dropped $90!

If you're getting a WiFi model, then the difference will be quite marginal for a lot of uses. Not sure why you would get a 16GB iPad mini for $329 when you can get a 10" with a high res display for $379.

I'm thinking the smaller one will appeal to people who are looking for a smaller footprint from a weight and size standpoint. I don't think they're trying to chase the same user for the two devices. What I would be surprised with is if someone has a 9.7" version and buys the 7.9" version just for the hell of it. I'm not one to judge others on how they spend their funds as I'm sure we all have our vices (if its not Apple products, its something else, investments, cell phones, home theatre, etc.)

But overall, that is a considerably better price point for a refurb 10" tablet by Apple.

3rd gen refurb would be a great deal as it basically have the same specs as the 4th gen except for a faster processor and lighting connector. Personnel I find the 3rd gen performance to be very good already and nothing uses the new connector yet.
There's a sucker born every minute.

I think that they are at least in part looking to get those users who want an iPad but couldn't until now afford one; for these users the refurbs are a much better value as an entry-level iPad. Between the A5X and the Retina display which the iPad Mini doesn't get, I do think that the refurbs are better value for most.

If a larger size tablet is what you want, this is a great deal compared to the iPad mini (just an extra $50 more). I can't justify getting another tablet though.

Since an hour ago, when Apple introduced the 4th gen iPad, with a claimed 2x faster processor.

I'd buy one if we didn't have the iPad 3 and the dormant Playbook already

This is a fantastic price considering that an ipad 2 still goes for $399. These "refurbished" ipad 3's may actually be brand new. I have had an ipad 2 for a year now and there's absolutely nothing wrong with it yet I'm very tempted by this.
