With new software or operating systems, we want the best electronic device that we can have.
Get On Track
It may seem that the more expensive iPads could offer more technological opportunities, the cheaper ones can have their advantages too.
Best For Small Budgets
In the long run, it could be better to buy a cheap iPad. When you spend less money on the device itself, it gives you more available cash to get extra apps and gadgets to go with it.
Some of those extra gadgets could be extra hard drive space, a keyboard, travel mouse, speakers and a case. Or if you want to use it like a pro then you can learn from gurus like iPad Pete or expert Jason Owens. Check out what’s best for your budget:
- Budget Tip #1: Refurbished iPads; if you are looking to save money on an iPad, try shopping for one that is refurbished. Refurbishes units can be just as good as brand new ones. They have been taken back to the factory, rebooted and their software and operating system works as if it was brand new. The Apple store actually sells a good variety of refurbished iPads if you are looking to save money. The refurbished iPads are usually almost $50 less than the brand new ones.
- Budget Tip #2: Visit eBay; you can also visit eBay and find iPads that are used or just a day or two old. Every once in a while, a customer buys an iPad, then decides it isn’t the right one for them. Instead of taking it back to the store, they list it on eBay to sell. Sometimes, college students buy them for a short time, use them and then resell them. Often, you can get a good deal on a used iPad and still get a great working device.
- Budget Tip #3: Kindle Fire; another new similar device on the market is the Kindle Fire. It can do just about everything an Apple iPad can do. You can check your email, watch movies, read books and surf the Internet. A Kindle Fire is almost half the price as a brand new Apple iPad and offers some of the same features.
- Budget Tip #4: Wireless vs. 3G; when you buy an iPad, you also need to decide which features are more important to you. The more features an iPad has, the more expensive it is going to be. Some iPads offer just Wi-Fi only options. This means you will only be able to use the iPad where wireless Internet is available such as your home or a hot spot. Most public places anymore have nearby Wi-Fi access, so it wouldn’t necessarily be a problem. The more expensive iPads have 3G Internet access and you have to buy a data plan from companies such as Verizon or AT&T.
Don’t just limit yourself to retail stores, and don’t forget about learning how to use your iPad effectively!
Give yourself some time, so that you buy an iPad that fits your needs and lifestyle-without spending too much money.
