I was looking in to getting a cheap tablet like the kindle fire for reading, and such. Well one thing leads to another does it not? I can, for about $30 more dollars, $230.00 get an iPad 1. However I was wondering how well this unit still functioned. I mean it has been years since I owned one and I am sure iOS 5.1 is much different. Should I invest in to the iPad 2? I mean I am just going to use it for simple reading, browsing, maybe some Documents with Pages, and simple games. I can play 3d games on my xbox or macbook, however I do use pages and numbers a lot, I remember pages ran ok on the iPad 1 when I had one (first year it was out) I don't know how it would run now. So I guess what I want to know is.
Does the unit run smooth, or is it jerky?
does it run rainbow 6?
How is the browser, is it smooth, or do you still see the check board a lot?
not knowing the new and more complex apps, Should I just buy the iPad 2?
Thanks fellas, and ladies (in advanced)
