Apple iPad 3rd generation tablet down to £280

A popular eBay retailer is currently selling the Apple iPad tablet (third generation) for as little as £279.99, a significant discount off the suggested retail price of the device. That offer includes free delivery and 280 Nectar points.

Although it is a refurbished model (one that has been refurbished by the manufacturer itself), it does carry a full one-year warranty and comes with its retail box.

The tablet, which carries the product code (MD328B/A) and was released back in March 2012, comes with a 9.7in Retina Display which has a resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 pixel, four times that of the iPad 2. The Google Nexus 10 has the upper hand though with an even higher resolution.

It runs on a dual-core Apple A5X SoC clocked at 1GHz with a quad-core GPU, has a rear 5-megapixel iSight camera with a front-facing 0.3-megapixel Facetime one, 16GB onboard storage, 1GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, up to 10 hours battery life and is a mere 9.4mm thick.

The Apple iPad 3 was replaced last year by the 4th generation iPad which carries a faster processor, comes with 4G/LTE capabilities and has the new Lightning connector (rather than the old 30-pin one).
