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).

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
