Disadvantages: Lacking larger memories and 3g of more expensive i pads
i pad 2 wifi 16 GB
As one of the more affordable i pad this one is highly recommended. Smooth and sleek, easy to handle, it just looks and feels good to use. Great battery life, although it does take a while to charge. I was sceptical about i pads, I mean who needs one when you have a computer and a Smartphone right? Wrong. Not only are they fun, with apps running really well on such a nice screen size, but they are so handy for browsing the web, using money managing apps, to do lists, to watch catch up TV, the list is endless. An i pad has all the convenience of a phone with the basic features of a computer; you can read and download documents, even type your own. I adore the screen size, bigger than most tablets it is large enough to comfortably use, for apps, reading, browsing. While comparatively this i pad has a small memory it can run many apps without affecting performance, and 16GB are a more than adequate for this. The i pad 2 is really easy to handle and use, it soon becomes clear how to navigate round the i pad and it really is sensitive to every gesture, particularly useful when using apps. The wifi picks up and connects to networks easily making it ideal for using in the home and at wireless hotspots.
I have had minor issues with my i pad freezing until it is locked and unlocked, though that may not be a general issue. Considering it is a product you expect to use catch up services on the volume can seem quite low even at full volume at times, and the low memory doesn't allow much space for storing music or videos, although as it is a more affordable i pad this is to be expected.
Generally this is a great product for someone sceptical about tablets or who is on a more limited budget (students maybe) as it has all the features that distinguish i pads, although none of the luxuries that add to the cost!
Summary: A superb buy, an item you won't know you are missing until you have it!
