For those who have an IPad, specifically just the WI FI model, this thread is aimed at you. I am thinking of getting my DH a 32 gb wi fi IPad...first gen, for his 40th bday. To make it a bit more affordable, I was going to go for a refurb. Would you recommend this, or should I bite the bullet and get him the IPad2? I see that it has a faster processor and is thinner. Mainly, he would use it for playing around, reading the paper, surfing the web and putting movies on it for the kids to watch in the car, etc. No serious high tech stuff. No Skype-ing. Is the first gen just fine for that? Does it load web pages annoyingly slow on a wi fi signal when the pages have a lot of graphics? That would get on his nerves eventually, I know. But, I also know that he thinks as cool as the IPad is, it is a bit overpriced for what is essentially a big IPhone (which we both have already). He is a gadget guy, though, and I know he would like to have one for the fun of it. So, save some $ and get a refurbed first gen, or spend extra and go for the new one? Thanks!
