    Amazon has been suggested. Others crop up occasionally. Good luck

    Check out ebay seller:. Surplusbydesign
    They are in Ontario, test the playbooks before selling, accurate description, and free shipping.
    Looks like they have used 32gb's for $120 and 64gb's for $170
    'Used' usually means lightly. Get a battery monitoring app like Battery Guru and it will tell you how many charge cycles it has had.

    Looks good.
    You're probably going to get a UK charger though.

    There are used 64GB Playbooks in Mississauga for $127.48 with free shipping.

    But the one I bought says it's still boxed never opened. At that price I was surprised.

    64 Gb is the way to go, REMEMBER though, these things DO NOT LIKE TO BE FILLED TO CAPACITY. I did this once before a trip to AK, I loaded
    it up with about 10 movies and it already had my complete CD colection on it (ripped to WMA Lossless). This left about 3 GB left. I noticed almost at once that the unit was laggy, Apps would open ok, but they seem to slow down on closing. It was like it was having a bad hair day.

    Keep that in the back of your mind, and also, try no to play with the default icons on the main dock. Don't make folders in it, and try to keep at least 3 of the original icons in it. The os does not like it.

    Found out the way we all find things out. Trial and error.

    It does seem like a very good deal.
    I hope it works out better than your last one.

    Yeah, very good deal. Hope it comes through. You already have a rapid charger. Only potentially bad thing is the seller history. He's basically doesn't have any.

    That's what I'm worried about. I've emailed him twice hoping for an answer. If not I'm pulling out of the purchase and buying from staples.

    If you found one at Staples, and you don't mind it on credit, you might just get it. They aren't in stock at a lot of places. Unless they have good inventory. Then return it if the eBay one show up. One in the hand is worth two in the bush. Gooseberry bush?

    Good idea. I like to fully charge before I turn anything on. Especially with PB that goes through OS update. You don't want to lose power during that. Hard to wait but should only take 3-4 hours.

    Don't be in such a hurry. You can leave the rapid charger on while you are setting it up over wireless. If you have good wireless speed should get it done in less than an hour.

    Well, actually it is. I've done it and Battery Guru will report that both are plugged in.

    The Travel rapid charger can be attached wire left or wire right. The dock does not allow much else.

    For a used playbook it is in great condition. No wear and tear that I can see anywhere. Most I need to worry about is battery. But I'm at 63% now and fully updated.
