    Well I think it makes more sense to get an iPad with either 3G or 4G broadband access as well as wifi.

    iPad in general is a great device.
    However, if you take iPad 2, there are a few features missing: Siri is not available, in case you needed it, and it has lower screen resolution than iPad 3 or 4 with their retina screen display.
    There's also the question of how long it will receive the latest software updates.

    If all this doesn't matter, and you get it for a good price, then don't hesitate to purchase it.

    Yes, you will be able to watch movies on an iPad 2 and much more.

    As Apple is still selling the iPad 2 as an entry level full size ipad, this would suggest that they will still be offering updates for this iPad into the future.

    Enjoy!

    I have a 64GB iPad 2 - works and looks great.
    Just for fun I rented an HD priced movie from iTunes and could not tell the difference in picture quality, from less expensive SD content.

    I think you'll be very happy, while staying within your budget, with an iPad 2 wifi only device.

    Still have my iPad 2 running 6.1.2 Jailbroken & still running strong. I do everything with this thing lol, the A6 chip is faster but the A5 is still an awesome performance chip. Siri is kinda like a want not a necessity.

    And to support all positive info, I am running iOS Beta3 on my iPad2 and despite the occasional reboots because of beta software it runs just fine. So at least for a year more the latest software will be with your investment.
