The iPad 2 is a great choice for a tablet. Considering the price range, the features are worth it. You don’t want hi-fi features so you do not have to pay a hefty price. If you want even a further reduction on the price, then consider buying a used apple iPad 2. You will not have to spend a huge amount, and your need will still be fulfilled. Secondly, when newer and better versions hit the market, you can resell your iPad, and buy a newer model if you wish.
Once you have decided that you are buying a used apple iPad 2, you will still need to find answers to a few questions before you get hold of the ever popular tablet.
iPad 2 is available in three different storage capacities: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. The capacity which will be right for you depends on how you plan to use the iPad.
If you plug in headphones in your ears the entire day long, and fancy keeping an enormous music library on your iPad, then opt for a higher capacity. Apple’s iTunes lets you store 20GB. This is good enough when compared to other music libraries, but the 16GB iPad just will not be suitable for you in this case. However, the iTunes Match offers cloud storage facilities at $25 per year. This will free up space on your iPad, and you will not need so much storage then.
If you like watching movies and series, then you need enormous space. The DVD and HD prints easily go over 1GB, and even the not – so -good – quality files will need a large storage capacity. The gaming addicts and photographers will also need capacity if they want to play games with amazing graphics and want to capture pictures of the best quality.
However, if you just want an iPad to check mails or surf the internet, then buying a used apple iPad 2 with 16GB of storage will be ideal for you. If not, then go for a higher capacity model, because you cannot increase the storage later.
iPad features Wi-Fi and 3G communication. Every model can connect to wireless networks but 3G is available in some models only. If you want to use 3G services, then you will also need to decide on a provider. Bear in mind that you cannot change the provider after buying the device. The difference in price of both the models is huge.
Once again, the choice depends on how you intend to use the iPad. If you want to use your tablet at home or work, then you’ll probably have Wi-Fi access, and will not need 3G. However, if you are a frequent traveler, then buying a used apple iPad 2 with 3G features will suit you better.
The iPad may be sleek and shiny but it still cannot handle bumps and harsh use without damaging itself. Investing in an iPad Smart Cover would be a smart choice if you can add a little more to the bills. You can also purchase an iPad stand when you are buying a used apple iPad 2.
