    So I previously owned an Air 2 but traded it in for the Pro 9.7 inch so I like what it was capable of. Anyway I work in child protective services and my work iPad recently broke down and due to budgeting they can't provide me with a new one. So I was thinking of getting myself a cheap refurbished Air 2 as a replacement to take into the field and I was also hearing rumors that the IOS11 beta was working quite well on the Air2's. So I wanted to get some recommendations as to if it's a good idea and what not and also to keep in mind that my budget is very limited. Thank you

    Yes, that would be a good solution. Another option to consider is buying a used 9.7 iPad Pro. In about a week, the used market will be flooded with them and you might be able to score a deal that is comparative to a refurbished Air 2.

    The Air 2 is still very functional and plenty powerful. I would look into Apple refurbished store online, they have available models and it comes with an attached warranty.

    Another option is the 2017 iPad (starts at $329 for 32GB). Display is not as nice as the Air 2 and it's around 30g heavier but it's got a faster processor and amazing battery life.

    I'd like to thank everyone for their support and recommendations. It helped me quite a bit. Ultimately, I decided to go with portability so I'm gonna go with the Mini 4. It might be a little dated but it's still a great device and according to what I'm reading on these forums it seems to be handling the iOS 11 beta very well.
