iPad 2 16GB WiFi $349 (13% savings), 4th generation iPad $449 (10% savings), more

apple-ipad-retina-displayUPDATE: The iPad’s on Ebay have sold out

UPDATE: Ebay is now offering the 4th Gen. iPad (16GB Wi-Fi) in black or white for only $429.99 shipped. This is $20 less than Walmart’s deal for the same condition (NEW) iPad.

Walmart is rolling back prices on every in-stock iPad 2 and Retina 4th generation iPad while supplies last. This deal nets you a 16GB WiFi iPad 2 for just $349 (13% savings) or a 4th generation iPad for $449 (10% savings)

We typically see a couple $50 price drops over the course of a month (typically as an eBay Daily Deal), but a sizable discount for iPad 2 is certainly much more rare. Jumping up to a 4th generation iPad will get you a beautiful Retina display, faster A6X processor, the new Lightning connector and other performance bumps. If you can get by without those upgrades the iPad 2 is still a capable tablet.

Sale prices are available for multiple storage capacities, colors, and WiFi/cellular models. Browse the entire selection here.

iPhone 5s for $549, 5c for $449 (both $100 off) unsubsidized at Virgin Mobile

iphone-5s-5c-$100-off-virgin-mobile-unsubsidized

We knew Virgin Mobile was launching the iPhone 5s and 5C today but we weren’t expecting a $100 off starting price. That’s what’s on offer today from the Sprint subsidiary (Sprint will also knock off $100 the subsidized plans if you are a new customer – so much for loyalty benefits).

Virgin’s plans are the least expensive out there, especially considering they include unlimited data and start at $30/month.virgin-mobile-rate_chart

Belkin announces Express Dock for iOS devices w/ adjustable dial to accommodate cases

Belkin today announced its latest product for iPad with the introduction of the new Express Dock for iPad. The dock comes with a built-in 4-foot Lightning connector, and thanks to an adjustable dial you can position the Lightning connector to accommodate cases and dock just about any iOS device:

Belkin’s new Express Dock has an adjustable dial integrated to the back of the dock. When turned, the dial raises or lowers the Lightning connector that connects to your iPad so it will work with a variety of case sizes and styles. It makes every day docking faster and more convenient—even with the case on.

While Belkin is branding the product the Express Dock for iPad, the company says it will work with iPad 4, iPad mini, iPhone 5, and iPod touch 5th generation. That means you’ll likely have no issues with your iPhone 5s either, but there’s no mention of 5c compatibility.

The Express Dock is available through Belkin.com and select retail partners starting today for $59.99.  Read more

Apple is now shipping new iMacs, but savvy buyers should hold off just a bit longer

apple-imac-new-9to5toys-deal

Apple quietly updated their entire iMac lineup yesterday and they are pretty much the only game in town currently shipping the new desktop computers. This spells trouble for savvy buyers looking for a deal. It will take a week or so for authorized resellers (Best Buy, Newegg, B&H, etc) to stock each iMac model and only then will we start to see any sort of appreciable discount. It should be noted that MacMall is currently showing a $5 discount across the board but they are not specifying ship times. Amazon is also offering preorders.

Authorized resellers typically offer the best deals thanks to potential tax savings (at the time of purchase) and a higher propensity to offer discounts as way to be competitive. We saw $50 discounts only a month after the new Haswell MacBook Airs were released, so it shouldn’t be too long until the new iMacs see a price drop.

If you simply hold of purchasing a new iMac it is best to go directly through Apple and use any discounts that may apply to you (education, military, corporate, etc). If you are planning to add AppleCare to your new iMac be sure to grab it from an authorized reseller as their prices typically trump Apple direct.

Apple Airport Extreme 5th Gen (Refurb): $75 shipped (Reg. $180 new)

Today only, Dealfisher is offering a 5th generation, manufacturer refurbished Apple Airport Extreme for $75 with free shipping. This is as much as $116 off the new price from trusted retailers, $105 cheaper than Amazon’s new price and the cheapest refurbished price we can find by more than $20. The AirPort Extreme, model MD031LL/A features WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n, wireless printing, and provides “data transfer speeds up to five times those of 802.11g wireless networks.” It’s compatible with Macs, PCs, as well as your iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. More details below the fold. Keep in mind that for an extra $25,  Apple has similar refurbished options which come with a one-year warranty, so some might be inclined to spend the extra $25

Apple iOS device sales: iPad 64GB 3G: $180, iPod touch 32GB 4th-gen: $170, 5th Gen: $259


Some solid deals from around the web on Apple’s iOS products, the lowest we’ve seen for these configs…

First up, Cowboom has a used iPad 64GB with AT&T 3G for $179.99 with free shipping. That’s by far the lowest price we’ve ever seen on a 64GB iPad with 3G. This would make a great kids’ iPAd loaded up with videos or a kiosk.

Next, OneSaleaDay Wireless has a 32GB “new open box” iPod touch 4th Generation for $169.99 shipped. This is an all time low for a 32GB 4th generation which Apple replaced with a 5th generation a few months ago.

Finally, step up to the current iPod touch with a 32GB iPod touch with the same “new, open box” offer from Ebay for $258.89
