We have been in the process of trying to figure out exactly "WHAT" to do for next year. We KNOW that are getting iPads for sure, that question has been answered. The problem lies in how to trade in, swap out, buy new, etc... Here are our options:
1. Sell our iPads to Company A, and they will come and package everything up. They grade each iPad on an A, B, C level - and give us the money after they evaluate them. We can then buy NEW iPad Airs from Apple with a one year warranty; just like before.
2. Sell our iPads to Company A, and they will come and package everything up, and then trade in for iPad Airs that are ONE YEAR OLD. They have been used with another "company," for a year, not in student hands. THEN the best part - they will give us a four year warranty. If something goes bad, we send the iPads to THEM and they take care of it!
I REALLY like option 2 because of the extended warranty, but I don't like the idea of buying one year old iPads - not sure on this one? Lots to continue to discuss and think about - but ultimately the school board will make the decision. Either way, we are saving WAY MORE money than the initial $55 that a company that Apple gave us offered!
