Apple iPad 2
The 16GB iPad 2 remains in Apple's product line, but is much more budget-friendly thanks to its $100 price cut. As Apple is keen to point out, the iPad 2 is just as impressive as it was before the latest iPad was announced. Old model or not, the iPad 2 is still a wholly legitimate proposition. The dual-core A5 processor provides plenty of performance, with zero hang-ups or lagginess during everyday use. The iPad 2 is fully compatible with iOS 5, expanding its capabilities to nearly match that of the new iPad. If you don't care about the Retina display or taking pictures with a tablet, do yourself a favor and keep a hundred dollars in your pocket by buying the iPad 2.
