    I am selling a 16gb iPad Mini 2 WiFi in Space Grey. It comes boxed with an official Apple charging plug and lightning cable.

    I would describe the iPad as being in good condition, there are some minor marks on it which I have tried to highlight in the photos below. The screen has some very light scratching on it (I could not see any of these scratches when the iPad was on).

    The outer bezel has some marks and there seems to be a small pinprick dent near the charging port (see picture). Non of this impacts the working of the iPad.

    Price and currency: ***dropping price from 115 GBP to £108 GBP ***
    Delivery: Delivery cost is included within my country
    Payment method: BT
    Location: High Wycombe
    Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
    Prefer goods collected?: I prefer the goods to be collected

    Hi - thanks for listing this but now having read your description of the condition and seen the photos, I think I'll pass.

    Ok. No problem. As I said I tried to point out the worst bits so probably made it sound worse than it is. But I can understand if it does not meet your standards

    I have dropped the price to £108, there must be someone in need of this great iPad mini. iOS 12 has speed improvements in it so this will be a great device.

    No thank you. At that sort of price I will just keep it as a spare to control lighting etc

    An iPad Mini 2 in better condition than yours (no scratches, etc) can be had for about £85 to £90 on eBay.

    Fair enough. A couple of points though. There is a price point below which it makes more sense for me to keep it. Secondly, I have tried to highlight the bad points on the iPad to ensure the buyer is not disappointed. So the condition isn’t as bad as I have made out, something you can’t be sure about on eBay

    I agree there is usually a price point below which you may feel you are better of keeping it. Then again, if at any point in the future you wish to sell you might be offered significantly less (especially with electronic devices).

    I'll raise the offer to £70. That will be the very final offer from me.

    Let me know if you change your mind as I will be looking to buy an alternative within the next day or two.

    sorry mate, I would not be able to let it go that cheap, especially now that iOS 12 has now made it really fast again

    I don't think an IOS update will have much, if any, boost in speed, maybe a negligible amount but I am still going to make one absolutely last take it or leave it offer before I move on. I won't go any higher especially with the marks and the dent near the charging port. But the offer will still save me £10 to £15 against buying it elsewhere (even though those will be in excellent condition).

    Offer £75
