For my dad's birthday in October I was looking to get him an iPad. He currently has an HP TouchPad that was on fire sale but he never uses it. He's really not too good with technology so I feel that an iPad would be much easier for him to use. I'm a sophomore in college so cash is really a factor and I was thinking about getting him an iPad 2 due to price. Do you guys think it's worth it or is the iPad 2 not going to be able to keep up with upcoming apps and programs (iOS 7). What do you guys think in terms of usability for the next 1-2 years?
