Ok, so I've been using an old ipad 2 to just watch netlix in the kitchen while I do dishes. It does the job but it's slow and it has this weird "crash" every so often, sometimes very often, where I have to restart it to get netflix to work (and because it's slow it restarts slow). I don't want to pay too much cause it's not worth a lot to me (I already have an ipad mini - the last one - for my general ipad needs and I prefer mini for that anyways). But I'd like to get a faster/more up to date ipad to replace the 2 if I can get one cheap enough. My husband found a whoot deal for an an ipad air 2 64 gb for 280 and it got me thinking that is about what I'd find it worth. Anyways, I looked up prices and decided that the price isn't any much of a better deal for the air 2 judging from what I can find on ebay or amazon (granted I didn't check out hard drive sizes but since I need it for very little I can compromise on that). But... is it a good upgrade for both how much faster it will be over the 2 as well as how long it will stay mostly relevant (as in at least be usable as much as my 2 is now). or should I be looking at newer ones (I found for 300 I could find 2017's model but that's getting a little higher than I want unless it is a huge difference between it and the 2016 and I know myself, I have to put a limit somewhere cause I'll keep talking myself into"Oh, just a little more and I can get this"). Or even is an ipad air good enough if I can get it cheap (I realize most are going to be a good upgrade from the 2 but is an air still pretty relevant these days. Some ipads are better than others for long lasting, the 2 was amazing for how long it has been usable, the 3 was not a good one <- slower than the 2 cause of the screen change and no new chip).
