    Myself Alex Noudelman, I want to buy iPad 4. I have read about this iPad and its functionality. But not sure, would it be a good decision to buy iPad 4.
    I want to use iPad 4 for my personal use. Let me know, it would be good choice if i buy iPad 4.

    Thanks,
    Alex Noudelman

    Well, the iPad 4 is still a current model and they do work well. However, for not much more money you could just get an Air which has some upgrades and will have more update cycles since it's newer as far as the system software is concerned.

    If you can get a great deal on the 4 then that's fine. It's a good product. But if the cost difference much then go for the newest model.

    What specifically will you be using it for?

    I'm guessing your name is Alex Noudelman...

    As far as your question, the ipad 4 is still relevant and a lot easier on the budget than the ipad air assuming you are willing to sacrifice a little more heft.

    If you aren't completely relying on a huge screen, you could get the Retina Mini at the same price, and it has the A7 chip, etc. It's a smaller iPad Air, and it's a bit cheaper. But, by now you may be able to find some decent discounts for the iPad Air, or you may be able to find a lower price for a refurbished Air.

    OR, you could wait just a little later into the fall and get an Air even cheaper. Even though it won't be "New" anymore, and you would still be in the iPad 4's situation, (a generation behind) but you would get another year before it is 2 generations behind, whereas this fall the iPad 4 will already be 2 generations behind.

    Not sure if that makes much sense, it's just hard for me to explain that. Pretty much, of you wait just a couple more months, you would get the Air at the same price as the 4. This would give you an extra year with the device for only waiting a couple months. If you get the 4, it presumably will be dropped after iOS 9 or 10, where the iPad Air would be dropped after iOS 10 or 11.
