Having had a MacBook and an iPhone and used an iPad before, I certainly have familiarity with Apple products. However, I do know the screen resolution isn't great and evidently some consider the iPad 2 a relic.
The more I keep researching these, the more I keep talking myself in circles!
If you didn't know, Apple just discountinued the Ipad 2 and replaced it with the 4th gen at the same $399 price point. You can also look for deals on their outlet with all items coming with a 1 year warranty - http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/specialdeals/ipad
Since they just announced the price cut for the 4th gen, the refurb prices should fall soon.
