Old iPad gets juicy price cut

Written by


$399, €369 for 16GB model
As expected, Apple has slashed the price of the original iPad by 100 bucks in the US, so the entry level 16GB model now goes for $399.

Mind you, the extra $100 will get you a dual-core processor in a somewhat more portable package, but it’s still an interesting offer. In Germany the old iPad is now available at just €369, which is a slightly more substantial cut.

This places Apple in the rather awkward position of offering good value for money, something that rarely applies to anything from Cupertino. For example, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab costs €399, but there are still some cheaper dual-core tablets from the likes of Toshiba and Point of View.

In any case, if you don’t feel the need for a dual-core processor or webcams, the old iPad is a rather good choice. (Even Nick agrees. sub.ed.)
