With the retail launch of the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display set for tomorrow, Nov. 1, the Apple Store has marked down the refurbished editions of the last generation iPad 4 and iPad mini in its own online store.

The Apple Store page shows the discounts. These are factory refurbished and certified by Apple, including with a new serial number a brand-spanking new battery and outer shell. Apple includes free shipping in the deal. The company charges sales tax in most states, as it does with its new retail products.

These devices all include the same one-year warranty that new Apple devices include.

Apple's website says:

We test and certify all Apple refurbished products and include a 1-year warranty. All refurbished iPad models also include a brand new battery and outer shell. Limited supplies, but updated frequently. Availability is guaranteed upon receipt of full payment.
