What is an 'Ipad 2'? My sister just bought one from apple for 329 - I thought they only sold one model, starting from 399?

Whats the difference other than retina? Will it have a lightening charger?

Has the Ipad 2 been out for ages? Did releases go:

Ipad 2

Ipad 3 - old charging port

Ipad 3 - Lightening charger

Should I tell her to swap it for the 3?

cosmetically not much although it is slightly thinner. the main difference is hardware, no retina display or lightning port, older processor and graphics chip. for day to day usage its still a fine machine.

apple always do this with the iPad and iPhone when the newer versions are released the older outgoing model is reduced in price, presumably just to get rid of stock but it is a good way to get an new idevice a little cheaper.

PHiL you'll be hard pressed to find a deal on the retina iPad, best route to get a couple quid off the price would be topcashback at 4.04% off at the apple store which ends tomorrow.

Go on Amazon and buy a PAYG Sim from Three, currently £11.47. Gives you 3GB which lasts up to 3 months
I use my iPad a fair but but usually have wirless so one of these usually lasts me the full 3 months.

Why not tether your mobile's 3G to your iPad?

Just download PDAnet on your iphone/blackberry/android and its straightforward from there.

I’ve got a bit of a cash windfall coming my way and I want to know if I really need an Ipad mini. I have a 3 year old macbook that works fine and a Sony Xperia on giffgaff (£10 a month free data etc). I’m not really in a position to sign up to a 24 month 3G/4G contract with three and would only go with Wifi, so do I really need one? Hoping someone can talk me out of it Sticking out tongue
