    The new iPad Air 2 64gb LTE is $780 with tax while the refurb iPad Air 64gb LTE is $577 with tax.

    I've never purchased an iPad before and have only been using my school computer and iphone 5s. Considering the new macbook air is coming out within 4-8 months, I figured I'd upgrade my brick dell laptop to that. However, is the $200 difference worth it just to get the new iPad Air 2? Personally I think 16gb is out of the question considering iPad's tend to have music, movies, apps, etc. I found that out when I got my 16gb 5s and had to do a factory restore when I had 5 gbs of "other" and only 3 gbs of photos/apps/music leaving me no choice to wipe it if i wanted ios8. Thoughts?

    If you don't mind not having the TouchID, the iPad Air is fantastic. It was the best tablet only until yesterday.

    Get the refurb and save that $200 for when the MBA comes out.

    Refurb sounds like the better option for you IMO.
