I'm in the market to buy my wife an Ipad and I need some advice. She will primarily use it to answer emails, plan activities, light word processing. read the paper and do crosswords puzzles. Looking at the Apple Store, I noticed the following choices:
1. 1st Gen 16 gb wi/fi with 3g - $399. Although I don't anticipate her using the 3g option and the monthly plans, this would give her the option to take it on vacation.
2. 1st Gen. 32 gb wi/fi - $399. Do you really need the extra space?
3. 2nd Gen. 16 gb wi/fi - $449 - the newest model but would it be a significant upgrade given what my wife wants to do with the Ipad? Do you think it will be more future proof than the 1st generation Ipods? She won't use the camera at all on the Ipad.
I'm really kinda stuck here and would appreciate any advice or suggestions. Also, is the Apple store the only place that sells the refurbs?
