We have had a bit of a splurge in the household over the last six months with four new apple devices crossing the thresh-hold.
- iPad Air 2 128gb (Mine)
- iPad Mini 3 128gb (wife’s)
- iPad Mini 3 64gb (6yr olds)
- New Apple Tv 5th Gen 64gb (Mine)
- iPhone 5 64gb (Wife’s)
With the exception of the Apple TV (more on the Apple TV in a later post) each iPad has been purchased as a refurbished device costing a heck of a lot less than the full price. Initially purchasing my lad one (he was unlikely to have been fussed with the odd dent or scrap, especially once it was in a bumper case) as we did not want to splash out for a Mini 4 but did not want to be limited to a Mini 2 32gb. Settling on a Mini 3 64gb.
We was so impressed with the quality that one for myself and one for the wife quickly followed with an iPhone 5. Admittedly the original iPhone purchased was scratched and dented but this was quickly replaced. I would normally be upgrading my phone in October, although I have no desire to upgrade yet, I will seriously consider a refurb in future.
