Let's start off with two little disclaimers > I'm not sold either way, just looking for facts (and opinions, mostly opinions) so > I have no pre-made idea that I'm basically coming here to validate Anyway. I have an iPad 2... and I've noticed that it just isn't as zippy as it seemed to be before. Browsing gets me a lot of page refreshes, some lag (likely because the one I play the most keeps adding more stuff to it), and sometimes reading the text is a bit... well... not that great. Anyway, I have a few questions. Some of them are probably really stupid, but bear with me. > Is refurbished good for iPad? > Is a refurbished iPad 4 still worth it? Or would I be buying something that's already obsolete? > Going from an iPad 2 to the iPad 4, will there be huge differences? Yes, yes, the screen is retina and beautiful for text. But how is the color representation? How is the sound? How is the Wi-Fi strength? How much worse is the battery? If it has a dual core CPU just like the iPad 2, how is performance in comparison? > What will the backup actually backup? I don't know how my games work for their saves (Final Fantasy Tactics, Clash of Clans, Avengers Assemble, Plants vs Zombies, Magic Piano, and Temple Run 2). And does it rely on being on the same iOS version when you restore? Can you even restore your stuff from one version of an iPad to another? I suppose that's all I can think of, other than the obligatory "If you have anything to add, feel free to do so".
