"Shopping channel QVC, of all places, has a pretty good iPad deal going on right now. It's offering up Apple's magical and revolutionary device (in a 16GB Wi-Fi version) along with a ton of accessories for US $749. In that price, you get the dock connector cable, a silicon sleeve and stand, a clear case to put it in, a headphone splitter cable, two different screen protectors, and another case/stand to use. If you were planning to buy an iPad and all of these accessories anyway, that's as good a deal as you'll find."
Let's see, new iPad cost $499.00 USD from Apple, so this would mean the accessories were valued at $250.00 USD. I checked the QVC site and they list the following: "Includes iPad, dock connector/USB cable, power adapter, silicone sleeve with stand, DC charger, clear TPU case, headphone splitter, two screen protectors, case stand." This doesn't sound like $250.00 of value to me, but I suppose it's one way to get an iPad you didn't have credit, or enough cash on hand to buy one outright, since they break up the payments into 5 installments. Quite a premium though it seems like to me, what are your thoughts?
