Surprised

OK, I'm a bit taken aback by the interest - I was really just trying to decide where to shift it and how much to ask.

I'll make a decision on this tomorrow, but realistically I guess I'll check the BINs on Ebay, watch one auction and offer it on here (in order) to those who asked. It will have to represent a saving to the buyer over Ebay and yet be closeish to what I would get for it there after fees. There's an auction for the same thing (unwanted prize) here - are these people crazy?

Paypal and recorded/insured postage would be the method.

This is not a reconditioned or used unit - C2ribs was close, it was a reward for shifting a few pallets of product for a multinational. It's brand spanking still in the cellophane....

...I'm ASSUMING there's an iPad in there

It's means you cannot use it unless on a Wifi connection.

Ours is 3G which gives mobile coverage when not in a Wifi area. It's a massive feature of them to be honest, if you intend using it away from the home. It costs us 15 per month for limited usage. The good thing is when you get into Wifi range it converts over so you don't use your capacity unless needed.

If considering buying one its advised to try to get one with 3G even if you don't intend using it right away as its there when needed then. Once bought with-out you cannot upgrade it

If you have a smartphone like an HTC you can invent a wifi hotspot in the phone and tether the iPad to that though, or a laptop or indeed anything else. The GPS is a bigger issue in my view, as it makes Google Maps etc much less useful.
