Shortly after yesterday's event, I received a press release from Gazelle.com saying that they were eager to buy up people's old iPads if they were upgrading to the new. The release said that they would pay $375 for the original iPad, and more, of course, for the other models. Very shortly after, Apple listed the original models (new) on their website for $100 off, and refurbs at an even greater discount, starting at $349 for the basic model and $479 for the 3G. Wow. It seemed odd that Gazelle's offer was so high: I could buy a refurb for $350 and sell it to Gazelle for $375. But as you might expect, two hours later, I got another message from Gazelle, saying, oops, they were adjusting their prices due to Apple's sale. So check out Gazelle if you want to sell your old iPad and upgrade to the new. Here are the prices they originally offered:
· Apple iPad 16GB WiFi: $375
· Apple iPad 16GB WiFi+3G: $446
· Apple iPad 32GB WiFi: $437
· Apple iPad 32GB WiFi+3G: $522
· Apple iPad 64GB WiFi: $463
