What is the oldest generation iPad that you would buy 2nd hand? (And what would you pay for it?)
The grand plan now that my wife is working and we have some of that disposable income that I’ve heard so much about, is to have 3 iPads for the kids, and a MacBook Air (2013/4) for the adults (maybe even 2 if I like the MBA enough to get my own).
jimhobo (11) already has a current model iPad.
paddihobo (6) is using jimhobo’s old cracked iPad Air 2.
vinnihobo (3) is using paddihobo’s old 1st gen iPad mini.
The cracked one obviously is what I’m looking to replace (then will sell the cracked one for parts - as well as my old 4th Gen iPad that was cracked 2 years ago, helping to off-set the costs). I’m also going to upgrade the iPad mini to a 3rd Gen - have seen them on eBay for about $200 which is reasonable, but I’m just not sure with the iPad what I should go with…
My sons’ primary school will require paddihobo to have his own iPad in Grade 4 (he’s in Grade 1 now), so in all likelihood I may need to buy a brand new device at that point… so I’m not wanting to go all out here… All I really know is that I don’t want another Air 2 due to the insane screen repair cost.
