I may have a specific requirement that may necessitate the purchase and utilize an ipad mini, simply due to it's smaller size and therefore considering making the move by selling my absolutely mint, very lightly used original 1st generation ipad (black) with 64GB + ATT Wifi and much more, all listed below. I might consider some sort of trade for an ipad mini, depending on how it's configured and it's condition.
I am the orignal purchaser (from the Apple Store) of this ipad and if you read what is included, all I'm including is ideal for not only personal use but as a gift for budding student who will also be able to utilize the included combo bluetooth keyboard/foilio case, three tutorial ipad books and everything else listed.
The ipad will come in it's original Apple box with virtually all paperwork/packing material just as packed by Apple with wall charger etc. No marks, scratches on ipad screen that I can detect nor anywhere else on the ipad, front or back. Maybe slight signs of handling by human hands, thats all .I had a screen protector on screen since day ! but recently removed it and put ipad back in its box when I considered selling it. I am also including the following with this ipad:
1. The original very thin Apple brand foilo ipad case (a few scuff marks on this case from doing it's job), which I purchased new from the Apple store. From what I recall, it cost approx $39.00. I don't think I have the packaging it came in but if I do, it will be sent along.
2. The Kensington Keyfolio Pro Performance Keyboard/Folio case with original box and instructions with built in wireless Bluetooth. It's essentiall new (un-used) This is the deluxe version with real keyboard keys, not the cheaper rubberized keyboard. It was marketed for the ipad 2 but my original ipad slides into it alright with just a slightly bit off center in it's surround due to the thickness difference of the two ipads. Works perfectly and this version also allows swivaling of the ipad to use or type in the horizontal or vertical orientation! Sells for approx $99.00 and price tag is still on box.
3. I have three brand new, never read (too busy), sizable books written specially for the 1st generation ipad that go into detail operation and all sorts of instructions on both basic and advaced set-up and techniques utilized with this model. The books are entitiled a) ipad "Portable Genius", b) ipad "The Missing manual" and c) "My New iPad, A Users Guide". Each book cost me $25.00 and the book store price tag is still on each one. Since books are weighty, I would suggest if you want them to in this purchase, to have me ship the books seperately from the ipad and other items, by US Postal Book rate, to lower the cost of total shipping charges.
Price for everything is $295.00 plus shipping (additional fee for those using Paypal). Other methods of payment might be accepted, depending on references etc. I'm pretty firm on price as it may not otherwise be worthwhile for me to switch personally. Ipad Auctions on the bay for this ipad in similar conditon with absolutely nothing else included have gone for at least $299 to $359 and higher. With all I'm including, I believe it's an exceptionally good buy. Once purchased, I might need a day or two, to simply transfer apps etc. and pack things up...but I will be as super quick as possible.
For reference: I've sold many time on all the other usual photo forums as well as 10+ years on ebay with a perfect 1300+ feedbacks (no neutrals or negatives). Thanks!
