Let me start by saying this may be a wall of text and apologize in advanced. I've had my iPad 2 for 5 years now (bought it when it first came out) and it's been doing "great" for me, but it's starting to show its age. I'm keeping it on iOS 7 since iOS 8 and iOS 9 introduced less responsive interface which means I don't have access to the latest apps (Tweetbot is a good example). I use it mostly for watching Netflix, but when I first got it, I used it for web surfing, Twitter, Facebook, mostly as a consumption device. Sometimes I use Citrix to work from home as well. I see my iPad as being used more as a sitting down device on the couch instead of using my 15" rMBP. Here is my dilemma. With the new 9.7" iPad Pro being released soon, I'm at the point where maybe this is the time to buy a new one to future proof for another 5 years. Plus, even though, I'm not planning on buying an Apple Pencil or Smart Keyboard for awhile, the ability to get both later down the road is appealing. However, there also were pricecuts to the iPad Air 2 which also is appealing, but since it's almost 2 years old, I'm hesitant that it will last another 5. The way I see it I have 3 options: 1) Buy a new 9.7" iPad Pro. 2) Buy a refurbished iPad Air 2, 3) Wait and slog through using my iPad 2 and my rMBP more. I'm not sure which way to go especially considering I'm debating if I should get Wifi only or Wifi + Cellular even though I have a phone that I can use to tether. Also, my iPad 2 has 32GB and that's fine, but I think I would want to have 64GB for the future. Any thoughts?
