Have you been holding out, waiting for the right deal on getting an iPad? Why pay the high price of new when you can get an iPad 2 at significant savings?
For the last several weeks, OWC technicians have been hard at work restoring pre-owned iPad 2s to as near new quality as possible and now they’re ready to go. We’ve got all the versions available: Black, White, WiFi only, or WiFi+3G in either GSM (AT&T) or CDMA (Verizon) versions starting from $325.
Everything has been thoroughly tested, repaired or replaced, so you’ll encounter no issues with functionality. Buying used means the units are “broken in” to save you that heartbroken feeling from doing it yourself. While some minor wear may be apparent, the digitizers and front bezels are new and these units are fully functional. And if the minor blemishes from everyday use are an issue, you can always install one of our NuGuard Shell 2 or one of our many other cases to hide the imperfections completely.
Buying from OWC means buying with confidence, so these units all come with a 14-Day Money Back Guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied with your restored iPad 2 for any reason, simply contact OWC Customer Service within 14 days of your invoice date to request a full refund. No hassle, no restocking fees – that’s the OWC Difference.
So, while some things are just too good to be true, these deals are just too good to pass up. Get yours today.
While we are not in the habit of announcing products before they’re ready to launch, we decided to let the lid off of this one a little early, as it is quite exciting. We’d like to introduce you to our new PCIe-based SSD.
This card has a “stackable” design, allowing you configure the drive in sizes between 60GB and 2.oTB. This is done using individual miniPCIe daughter cards that attach to the main card. There’s no requirement for all the daughter card slots to be filled at once, which means you can easily expand capacity over time as you need it.
The main card is based around the Marvell 88SE9445 SATA RAID Controller and the individual daughter cards will feature a SandForce 2200 Series controller. It’s compatible with both Mac and PC, and as such, will be the first Mac supported PCIe SSD solution of its kind.
We’ve got more details and performance numbers in the works; stay tuned to the OWC Blog for more information on pricing, performance, and a projected release date in the very near future.

Just a few days after the 10th Anniversary of Apple’s first retail store, our favorite Cupertino-based, fruit-themed computer company seems to be planning something.
According to several rumors sites, there have been a number of “suspicious” activities from the Apple camp:
- Overnight shifts for Saturday night have been assigned—and they require a cell-phone lockout and an NDA!
- Mysterious packages of equipment arriving at the retail stores.
- Large amounts (in the GB range) of password-protected data labeled “training” have been downloaded from Apple corporate.
- Mandatory staff meetings at all Apple Stores on Sunday, mostly in the AM.
As it always is within the Apple ecosystem, whenever Cupertino makes some “secretive” moves, the conspiracies start flying. This instance is no exception; the theories being bandied about include:
- iPad-based POS System - This is entirely possible. Apple recently updated to using iPhones/iPod Touches for the stores’ sales floor. An iPad could make for an interesting approach – using larger images for products, etc.
- “Setup Stations” Replacing the Genius Bar - As we mentioned in OWC Radio #54, Apple has been moving more towards a focus on “personalized setup.” The equipment that’s arrived could be stations where Apple staffers can help a new user get things set up and ready to use, rather than at the Genius Bar itself.
- iCloud - We all know Apple has that gigantic data center in North Carolina, and there have been rumblings about this service for a while now. Plus, there was a significant “burp” in service to an extremely large number of MobileMe subscribers earlier this week. Perhaps somebody threw a switch, and these were the people who had slipped through the net.
- Early Release of OS X 10.7. Lion - It’s possible Lion is just about done, and the level of secrecy around this whole thing is about right for a surprise OS release. However, with WWDC coming in just a couple of weeks, it would be a bit of a raspberry to developers hoping for a final SDK at the conference.
So what’s do you think is hiding in those boxes behind the hose black curtains? Whether your theories are probable, plausible, possible, or just plain ludicrous, we’d love to hear ‘em!
