Hmmm - as much as some of the iPad air features/improvements intrigue me I cant get away from the pretty good deals(likely to get even better) on the 4th gen iPad refurbs. I could save hundreds of dollars and/or get more storage/cell support for the same money as a new Air. Portability isnt a huge thing for me and Ive never minded the weight of the my iPad 2. Im likely going to pass my 2nd gen ipad to my daughter so Ill need something to replace it. Just curious if any other prospective iPad buyers are actually leaning towards a 4th gen iPad at these good prices? Im like 80% leaning that way. Can get a 32gb verizon model for like $550 bucks shipped from Apple(refurbed). Its $200+ less than an Air.
