Mini Ipad... Craigslist vs. Retail

28 14 December 17, 2017 at 11:20 AM
This is strictly to be used as a gift for myself. A friend let me borrow their Mini on a trip and I loved it... lightweight, fit into a small purse that I have, and it did not feel awkward as the Kindle Fire (I love Amazon products but the Kindle just felt awkward to me when using it). I've never cared for Apple products preferring my Toshiba laptop and Android phone over Apple anything, but I do really like the Ipad.

Anyway I can buy a Mini Ipad gen 2 with 128 GB gently used on Craigslist for $200. I can also buy the gen 4 model at Best Buy for $300+ tax.

Which is the smarter choice? I'm a pretty frugal person and I try to buy things used to help the environment. I basically want an Ipad to watch Netflix downloads at work during my lunch break, use during a long flight for the same thing, send emails,basic internet browsing, and to take photos. I do not plan on storing music or many pictures (if any at all) on it.

The other alternative is to buy the Mini Ipad gen 2, 16GB for $130. I just thought $70 more for a lot more data was smarter.

Personally I would go on eBay you could probably grab a mini 2 16gb for $100 or so on Apple storage doesn't matter that much honestly unless your going to have over 1000 photos on it there is no reason you would run out of storage

Also if you don't mind the size Costco has IPad 5 on sale for $269 right now
