Apple has knocked £100 off the price of the first-generation iPad. Undoubtedly a move to clear the shelves before the arrival, on 25 March, of the new version, the upshot is that buyers can avail themselves of the older, thicker, heavier model for less. The 16GB Wi-Fi only is now £329, down from £429 - which is what the 16GB Wi …
Quick way to make some cash this, sell a ton of iPads on ebay with a 24 hour auction, undercutting everyone by 20-30 quid and still make a profit.

Advent vega - I have one and am using it now, a great piece of kit for £249. Apple need to get the new ipad at £329 to show a bit of respect.

I'm in the US, but a refurbished, clearance first gen 16GB iPad 3G cost me $479. Not bad at all, for what it is. I didn't really see what was supposed to get me so excited in the iPad 2.
