My better half's netbook has died so I'm thinking of getting her an iPad to replace it. I'm a big fan of Apple kit (this is being typed on my 5 year old MacBook Pro that is still going strong) so am not really interested in other tablets.
So my dilemma - they're all expensive, but how much to spend? I was originally thinking of a refurbished first generation model, then thought, well I might as well pay another £50 or so and get a refurbed 2nd gen. Now I'm thinking what about this new one?!
The apple store has a refurbed 1st gen for £239, refurbed 2nd gen for £289, or brand new for £399.
16GB wifi is plenty, no need for 3 or 4G. I'm leaning towards the refurbed 2nd gen but what if I finally get round to editing the 2 years worth of video footage of the kids, maybe I could do a better job on a spanking new one?!
Anyone got experience of the different generations, does the brand new one really do that much different to 1st/2nd gen?
