If you want an iPad primarily to use as a media consumption device, a first gen iPad Air is still a really solid tablet. Today on eBay, you can grab an open box 16GB model for $270, or $130 less than Apple’s price. [16GB iPad Air, $270]
Alternatively, you can shrink the screen and double the storage for the same price with an iPad Mini 2. Spec-wise, it’s virtually identical to the first gen Air. [32GB iPad Mini 2, $270]
