    From what I have read, it is supposed to be the bomb.

    Thanks for that, but a $200 credit for something that cost almost 1k does not seem like a great deal. I'll just keep it as an e-reader

    How the hell did it cost almost 1k? Also, it's worth way less than $200 now. You are crazy not to trade it in.

    the Surface Pro costs > $1000. The iPad Air is way cheaper than a grand unless you want the 128GB, Wifi, Cellular model (which is approx $850).

    had i known about this i would have traded my 1st gen in for a 16GB Wifi unit. i figure they will do it again though: once something is put on sale, it usually go on sale again.

    I doubt they will offer this tradein on the ipad 1 again. I'm sure there will be other sales on the ipad air though. Esp with black friday coming. I would guess you will get it at $429 on black friday.

    She was saying her ipad 1 was 1k. But I guess maybe she bought a loaded ipad 1.

    well she's never going to get anywhere near a grand for her ver 1 ipad now. the most loaded series 1 ipad is only worth about $70-$80 now.

    correct. Which is why she is crazy for not wanting to trade it in for $200.

    if the sale worked for them, they will probably offer something later. My ver 1 just sits here doing nuthing; it can sit forever.

    also i can't see anyone really needing a lot of storage in ipads now: for $25/yr you can get itunes match and store all your music, etc. in Apple's cloud and have access to it almost anywhere. if i can download music and documents in the city subway i'm ok,

    I picked up an iPad Air last week. If you're still using the original iPad then upgrading to the iPad Air is a no brainer... The difference in performance, screen quality and weight will blow your mind up Wendy style! :c
