Parted out an iPad will probably cost double what a brand new one does.

The PCBs and the chips are expensive in small volume!"

"and the best bit is, apple would not repair it, if something goes wrong...

i was going to buy one with cracked screen. i first was told by apple care ""just bring it in, and we will fix it for you"". then i have dug a bit deeper and have asked another apple care professional, if it really is replaceable in apple stores, he said to me, i would be turned away... i am not going to do anymore business with apple anymore. this iPhone is also the last one...

the way they make things is simply not good enough for me. if glass can be shattered so easily, why the $&@$ no one makes it out of plastic? i know, i am barking at the wrong tree..."

"I bought %70 of the parts needed to build one myself. But the eprom chips have the preloaded software from Apple. And not to mention the flash hard drive. What I did do was order from A web site called Dealextream about %50 of the unit. We in Toronto Ontario Canada have a mall called Pacific mall. In it has about 200 small china like stores with the rest of the imports for the Ipad. You are almost assured that most stores only carry Ipad 1 parts in stock. Cost to date is about $300

Good luck"
