We're thinking of getting a couple iPads for the kids. They currently have and old iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4. These would be dual purpose in that we'd use them for educational and non educational games, reading, and movies on long drives. We're doing a 32 hour (round trip) drive at the end of the year and thought we could get these rather than investing in a in-care DVD system. The problem is we want to make sure they can handle playing the games as the 3GS and 4 they have are starting to struggle on the newer games. The movies will be the biggest pain. With data caps there will be no streaming and a 16GB iPad won't hold much, but the larger versions get pricey. I can't fathom spending this much. Any suggestions? Will an iPad 2 handle most current games? Or should we go mini to get newer hardware for less price? Maybe we get an in-car DVD system and use the iPads for games/books. Just brainstorming and wondered what everyone has done?
