Hello, I am soon going to be on the market for a new iPad, and am wondering what the community thinks would be the best for me. I am currently using the 32gb iPad 3 ("new iPad") from March 2012. The iPad still runs, although its web surfing is a little slower than I would like, but entirely usable. The reason I'm in the market for an upgrade is that the battery does not last as long as it used to (down to about half of its capacity), and I am also out of storage space to rent movies for plane trips having to constantly manage apps to download new ones. I primarily use my iPad for: - Surfing, News, Flipboard - Games (primarily Hearthstone, and Lara Craft Go/Hitman Go) - Netflix, HBO, ESPN, movies on planes - Skype - Apps: Yahoo Fantasy, Weather, Yelp and TripAdvisor I have no interest in taking photos with the Pro, and I don't usually use the speakers on my mobile devices making two of the Pro advantages non-issues. Would you recommend the iPad Air2 or the new Pro9.7? The air2 with 64gb is $499, and the Pro9.7 with 128gb is $749. I'm fairly certain that I could get by with the 64gb for the next 3-4 years. I guess it comes down to if the $250 + tax is worth the speed increase? Any other opinions?
