I currently have an iPad 2 32 gb. It's been having some major issues lately. The home button only works sporadically and the power button is no longer working. If it's asleep, I have to hold the power button down for the slide to power off screen. The rocker bar for the volume doesn't work. I'm thinking it's time to replace it. I'm getting ready to start UCLA Extension classes and it requires an iPad, so I have to have one. Unfortunately, money is a big, big problem right now, so I'm looking on eBay to get a replacement. I just can't afford even Apple's refurbished ones at this point. I can't qualify for credit right now either so I can't just sign up for a Best Buy card or anything. There's that Presta website which is basically a rent to own but you know their markup is going to be ridiculous plus they only have the 16gb versions of the iPad 2, the 4, and the Mini. Any suggestions here on which way to go? From what I've read, the 3 shouldn't really be an option. I also don't think I really need a 3G model so I'm looking at WiFi only. Thoughts?
