For $49 bucks you can get something that looks like an iPad but just doesn’t do anything. Here from the wonderful FAQ:
Do you sell working iPads?
For people browsing around this site with the idea they can get an iPad for $49, here the definition of ‘dummy’: ‘a model or replica of a human being’. And that’s exactly what we sell. We sell non-working – without electronica – ‘iPad-looking’ replica’s of iPads, not real iPads. The dummies, however, have real weight, and look really close to a real iPad, but the parts of the dummy model cannot be used to replace original iPad parts. We don’t sell any working and/or original Apple stuff, please remember this. We sell not-working, non-original dummies aka display models.
Can the screen be used to replace a real iPad screen?
No, the screen of the dummy is made of plastic. It is not not realistic to use it as a replacement for your real iPad.
Do the buttons respond like normal buttons?
No! They won’t respond when you press them.
Is the back made of aluminum?
No! It’s all plastic.
