When it comes to one of the most popular selling or most wanted tablets, the Apple iPad comes on top but it is far from being among the most affordable tablets in town and that's why Android tablets from China also seem to be gaining ground in the market.

It is almost impossible to associate the word cheap to iPad but n Nigeria, anything is possible. How do you buy an iPad at a good deal? How can one by cheap iPads in Nigeria without having to spend a fortune.

I first took a visit to one of the best online shopping websites in town and noticed that the cheapest iPad on offer was selling at NGN90,000 and this was for the iPad mini(16GB, 4G, WiFi).

I proceeded to another online store, a registered Apple dealer in Nigeria and the listed price for the Ipad 3(64GB+WiFi) which was on promo was at N95,000. This one didn't come with 4G.

The third online shopping website I went to was also a popular one but they have ran out of iPad mini which was the cheapest they offered. Yeah, iPads are selling fast in Nigeria and it seems the ipad mini sells faster probably because of it's portability and price.

What is a resaonable price to buy an iPad in Nigeria? Does it then mean that there are no ipad versions that sell for below N70,000 at least? Well, in Nigeria, anything is possible.

In case you didn't already know, there are different versions of iPad and they come with optional features which can also reduce the cost of price you have to buy them.

There are different iPad generations and these include the following:

iPad (2010)
iPad 2 (2011)
iPad 3 (2012) a.k.a The new iPad with retina)
iPad 4 (2012)
iPad Mini (2012)

Older ipads like the original iPad 1 are probably the cheapest you can find in the market and they would probably be second hand or refurbished. You may also find other cheaper ipads at the computer village and electronics shops close to you but they would be refurbished or fairly used.

The bottomline is that, if you want to buy cheap ipads in Nigeria, you may either go for the affordable new ones or the used ones and these are mostly older generations.

However, there is a third way to buy cheap ipads in Nigeria, if you are so keen on saving some money for a device - Just buy it directly from the Apple store.

I've been buying a lot of things online at sites like Amazon, eBay, Nike and Footlocker and so I decided to proceed to the official iPad store owned by Apple to see how one can buy ipads from Nigeria. Yeah, Apple does have an official online store where they sell their own iPads direclty and this is probably the best place you can buy the cheapest newest iPads online and get the features you want.

The cheapest Apple iPad I saw on the Apple store was a refurbished iPad mini(Wifi+64gb) and this was selling at just $279(N45000). If you include the cost of dhl shipping to Nigeria, you may pay at most, an additional N15,000 and this brings the value to around N60,000. Yes, that is the cheapest price of iPad I've seen you can get and that is for refurbished mini without 4G.

If you would rather go for a new but affordable iPad from Apple, well, the cheapest new one you can get is the iPad mini and this starts selling from just $329 which comes with 16gb memory and WiFi. If you include other things like more memory size and 4g, it would cost you more.

In summary what am I saying?

You can get cheap iPads in Nigeria in the following ways:

- Buying used or refurbished Ipads at the local market or from the Apple store
- Buying the new iPad mini
- Buying an iPad without the 3G or 4G.

If you intend to buy straight from the Apple website, you just need the services of a US mail forwarding service and then use their personal shopper service to buy the Ipad on your behalf. It would be shipped to Nigeria within 5 days using DHL or Fedex after they've received the goods from Apple. You would just need to get a Visa or Mastercard from your bank for this.

Actually, you can ship any ipad to Nigeria using a US shipping agency. That's why I wrote this post. Just sign up with a US shipping agency and then use their personal shopper service to buy any iPad you want.

Re: How to buy Cheap Apple iPads in Nigeria Reply by Felix Okoli on Tuesday November 19, 2013 at 14:8:23:

I don't think there are any new or latest ipads selling at that price. You may however find older and used ipads at that price in the local market or from sites like OLX.
