Apple to refund recent iPad buyers

iFans who recently bought the first-gen Apple tablet are in line for a £100 refund, Apple has confirmed, after it dropped the asking price following the launch of the iPad 2.

According to ElectricPig, in order to claim your cash you’ll need to take your receipt to an Apple store to prove you splashed out on your shiny gadget between February 16th and March 2nd.

Provided you do that within 14 days of the day of purchase, the Apple sales folk will pass on the cash “without any complicated returns or exchanges”.

The offer comes after Apple slashed the price of all iterations of the original iPad by £100 when bought sans contract.

You can now grab the entry-level 16GB Wi-Fi only edition for £329 – making it some £170 cheaper than the soon-to-land rivals in the nascent tablet space, the Motorola Xoom and BlackBerry PlayBook

Alternatively, if you’re more of a top of the range kind of chap, the 64GB model with 3G and Wi-Fi is available for £579.
