Considering ipad 2 - need some opinions


I am looking for some advice regarding ipad. I am interested in buying a refurbished ipad 2 mainly to save money. In our household we already have 3 ipads; ipad 3 cellular, ipad 3 and ipad 2 - all 16 gb. The problemis is that the current ipad 2 is shared between two kids: one is under 3 and the other 10. Without investing too much money, We would like to give them another one and here is my problem - should I go with 2 gen and does it make sense to buy it in 2013? I am familiar with both (2nd and 3rd gen's) and i know my kids wont care for things like retina display or even faster cpus; but my concern is about future iOS'es. Can we say that because the ipad 2 is still offered for sale, it will see at least iOS 7 or perhaps limited edition of 8?

Has anyone recently considered ipad 2 and bought one, is it still a smart buy even in 2013 when the hardware is technically 2 generatinons behind?

I appreciate any input.
Thank you
