The iPad is a sensible tablet solution for a very wide range of people. For those that want the latest and greatest, there are new model iPads available from $329 to $999.
There are also tens of millions of used and refurbished iPads that are no longer sold new by Apple. These models span the full continuum of price and features.
The most affordable iPads - the 2nd, 3rd, 4th generations and the iPad Mini - are still very practical for many people, especially if they are only using the tablet for a handful of features. If you already own one of these devices, they also make a great hand-me-down gift.
