    Hi there ,

    I,ve got a deal with someone for an Ipad Air 16 gb Space Gray , full box , with very little use for 160 dollars . Do you think is worth it ?

    I,ve used for 6 months an Ipad Air 2 with 64 gb 4 g which I,ve got for 650 dollars but I had to sell it in order to get an Iphone 6 .

    Sounds like a good deal to me. All you need to do is check the prices of refurbished and new iPad airs to see its a good price. 16gb might not be enough space depending on how you use it but for $160 I think it's a good deal.

    That's a great deal. The storage may be an issue (depending on your usage) but a lightly used iPad Air for less than $250 is a steal.

    Here in Romania we don,t have official apple stores , just resellers so there are not refurbished ipads .
    I think the storage is enough for browsing web , listening music , editing some photos , youtube and watching movies with moviebox .

    That's a great deal! I have been looking for a used Air for my wife, and the cheapest I have found in decent shape has been around $250-$275.

    1GB RAM on the iPad Air is terrible , constant refreshing


    Better just paying extra as it's more future proof

    160 USD for an iPad Air is a great deal, assuming there are no problems with it.

    That's a great deal. The iPad is the only Apple product I buy with the base 16GB and have no problem. If you're using it primarily for web browsing, email, light apps, you'll have no issues with the storage or 1GB ram.

    I just got it . There is no problem with it , just the volume down button presses harder . The ipad is not as fast as the Air 2 i,ve had . I can see the lag on ui with ios 8.3 , but for 160 dollars i,m happy .

    Really 1GB terrible and constant refreshing? Maybe if you have an iPad Air 2 but i think the iPad Air and iPad mini2/3 work like a charm on e.g. iOS8.3

    I agree with you that ofcourse if you have the money to spend ofcourse an iPad Air 2 is more future proof (full 50/50 split screen support in iOS9 for example).

    That sounds like a great deal man!
