    Buying an ex-ipad display
    Hi all

    First post and need some advice.

    Due to the company going into administration, I could get my hands on a display iPad for cheap.

    It seems to work just like a normal iPad but I was told that it is supplied specifically to be a display, with what I assume different programs or limitations.

    My questions would be:

    -Are these ipads really just an iPad or are they majorly different?
    -If they are one in the same, but i needed someone to clean/change anything in it. Could this be done by a computer person?

    Any help would be great!

    I think your referring to an iPad that was a display model. You didn't mention which iPad it is but I'll assume it's either the iPad 2 or 3 since the iPad 4 models are too new. You probably should have someone who knows about the iPad and how to use it to test it for you before buying. After buying it, you can reset it back to factory specs by attaching it to your PC or Mac running iTunes.
