I've had an iPad 3 and been very happy with it. It's getting a little choppy under iOS 8, so the new iPad Air 2 made it time to upgrade. I went onto Craigslist to see what I could get for my iPad 3 64GB (Verizon LTE version) and when I typed in "iPad 64GB", I found a newly listed mint condition 64GB iPad Air, Space Gray for $375. I quick haggle later and i get the guy to let it go for $350. It's a huge update to the iPad 3 and I'm very happy with it. Yes - it's not the latest and greatest, but I'm also $300 (with tax) better off than if I'd bought an iPad Air 2 today. I'll check out the Air 2 in the store this week, but it's going to have to be really compelling to get me to fork out the $300 extra.
