    There's no difference in quality between refurbished and new iPads. They come with the same one year warranty as new iPads. The only difference is the lower price of the refurbished units.

    This is my first iPad and it is a 3rd generation, 32gb Wi-Fi only. I certainly made a good choice so go for it. I love my iPad.

    I would definitely go along with Barcamad there. The 3rd gen iPad has the beautiful retina screen, is fast enough for anything I need, has a nice stable WiFi connect, and I find it just great to use. I simply don't have any criticism of it at all. If you can get hold of a new or refurb one, grab it!

    Because you don't download music or movies now doesn't mean you never will. The 'Pad has a way of changing people's leisure-time behavior. Also, many game apps take up a bunch of megs. So go ahead and get a 32-gigger; you'll thank me later.

    That seems a little expensive but you don't say what gig the iPad is. dchristo gives good advice, go for the best you can afford.
    Good luck, you won't regret buying an iPad.

    Hopefully not £, but $ at that price. I love my 3, and am so glad I got a 64 GB model, I didn't think I would use it (or the storage) that much but decided to go for it anyway. And I do use it!!

    The iPad 3 should be getting full iOS updates for a long time to come.

    I scored mine from a local big box store in December 64 gig verizon for $580. I actually took a 4 back that I had just purchased and kept the three. The three has the old 30 pin connector and you can find a ton of accessories on Clarence. There is little if any noticeable difference between the two. And I play some pretty intense flight and driving games. I suspect as mentioned above that the updates will keep coming for some time.
