This refurbished iPad could be your new mobile work device, and it’s less than $235

TL;DR: As of September 11, you can get the Refurbished Apple iPad 5th Generation for just $234.99 instead of $260 — that’s a 9% discount. (And a much bigger discount on a brand-new iPad.)Tired of carrying around your laptop for work? Having a portable work device is convenient, but a tablet might be more convenient than a full laptop. This refurbished Apple iPad 5 could be a light, compact replacement for your work laptop, and right now it’s only $234.99, down from $260. 

A portable but powerful device 

If you’re used to a laptop, you might be hesitant to move over to a tablet. However, iPads have a huge selection of apps and hardware accessories, and the computing power to back them up. This one has a 9.7-inch multi-touchscreen and the Apple A9 chip. It also has a 1.2MP FaceTime HD camera, great for web conferencing. And the 128GB SSD should be sufficient room for a variety of apps and local file storage, though you could also supplement it with cloud storage. One of the main differences you may notice moving from a laptop to an iPad is the primary memory. This iPad has 2GB RAM, which you may notice in the performance if you run a lot of demanding apps. In terms of connecting online, this iPad is only WiFi-enabled. It also comes with Touch ID and Apple Pay already installed. Though it has been refurbished, this iPad 5 is certified to look and work like new. It has been tested, cleaned, inspected, repackaged, and it ships with all relevant accessories. The only sign you may see that it was refurbished is that the box may be generic — and the nice markdown on the price. 

An iPad might be your new favorite mobile workstation
