One Apple Authorized Reseller said Monday it currently has stock of all new iPad mini Wi-Fi and iPad 4 Wi-Fi models, which it's offering with free shipping. Meanwhile, eBay has just launched a new section of its website dedicated to Apple certified refurbished products.

iPad mini and iPad 4 in stock



Readers without ready access to an Apple retail store can skip the two week wait times for an iPad mini from Apple's online store by placing their order with AppleInsider sponsor MacMall by calling 888-338-6102. The Apple reseller says it has stock of all new iPad mini and iPad 4 Wi-Fi models, which it's ready to ship out immediately with free shipping.

MacMall is also besting Apple's post-approval financing of 6 months no interest, no payments (if the iPad purchase is paid off in full within 6 months) by offering an additional $20 discount off the total order purchase for finance customers. The reseller also only charges sales tax in California, Illinois, New York, Tennessee, Minnesota, Georgia, North Carolina & Wisconsin. Apple charges tax in all states.

Similarly, MacMall continues to offer readers the lowest prices anywhere across Apple's entire Mac notebook lineup when using the links in AppleInsider's Mac Price Guide and applying coupon code APPINSDRMWB36316.

Those looking to upgrade to one of the new iPads can trade in their old model at a number of services that offer cash in exchange for old iPads. Click here to check trade-in values for the first, second and third generation of iPads.

eBay's new Refurb Apple Store



Meanwhile, eBay in recent days launched its new Apple Certified Refurbished Product store. The store currently lists a handful of MacBooks, iPads and iPod touches. eBay says each product has passed through a quality inspection by Apple and comes with a full one-year warranty. Additionally, all iPads and iPods include a brand new battery.

eBay and AppleInsider also recently teamed up to create an Apple product auctions web application, offering readers a streamlined view of the auction website's Apple product listings, with advanced controls to help filter through tens of thousands of listings by model, year, price, and more.

The web app is currently accessible as a beta at www.appleinsider.com/auctions/ and feedback and feature requests are welcome at appleinsider.auctions@gmail.com.
