    iPad 2

    64 GB

    Wi-Fi + 3G

    Mint condition (no scratches or dents or anything)

    How much could I get for it on Craigslist or eBay or maybe here on NBR?

    Someone on another forum sold the same model to a co-worker for $450 and he said he probably could have gotten more. My guess between $450-500.

    You can buy a new one from Best Buy for $730 (they still have most of the iPad 2 models in stock) so keep that in mind. No matter what condition it is in, the iPad is still a year old and used. I can tell you that most people putting them on Craigslist in my area are getting around $600 for theirs. Others are getting more because they are including accessories, the original box, and other things.

    You can always look on eBay and see what the average rate is. Just don't expect anything close to $720 though. However, if you do find a someone fool enough to buy it for $720, you should go for it. I suggest putting it on Craigslist (or whatever) for $675 and see what happens from there. If no one responds, lower the price by $25 and push it back to the top. Keep doing that until it is sold.

    Edit: I sold my 64GB wi-fi only iPad 2 for $500 but it included the original box, a preinstalled screen protector ($20), translucent blue plastic back that works with Apple's Smart Cover ($20), and a neoprene sleeve case (came free with plastic back). Maybe I got a good deal, I don't know.

    I'd say it's a fair deal for both of you.

    I had a guy agreed to buy my mint 32GB white wifi for $425, this was a few days after the iPad 3 announcement. In typical Craigslist fashion, the guy was never heard from again after we set a time to meet. I left the listing active but there were zero inquiries.

    Fast forward to two days ago. I relished it with a firm $425. Had two emails with phone numbers within two hours, both straight up said they'll buy it. Sold it to the first guy that showed up, an hour later.

    My point is, seems higher capacity iPad 2 are holding well, interest seems to have gone UP, based on my experience.
