No other gadgets out there holds their value as good as Apple's devices.
I Paid $599 for my 32 GB iPad 3 when it first came out, and in this Best Buy Black Friday sale, the iPad 3 is still going for $549 (32GB), with a $75 gift card! iPad 3's are holding their value pretty damn good. All iPads, no matter which models on the used market fetch very nice prices. People go apeshit for iPads, even the used models.
Maybe you should go buy an Android tablet instead. Go pay $500, and see if you can get $99 for it afterwards. Based on your rather strange and pathetic reaction towards the amazing ability of Apple's devices to retain a very good value, you'd be crying like a little whiny girl, had you bought anything else.
And even though Apple's products have an exceptional ability to retain their value, even years afterwards, that shouldn't be the main reason which motivates somebody to buy a tech device. If you're purely interested in value and things that don't depreciate after time, then go buy some precious metals or something, or even better, go buy some AAPL!
