My buddy buys and sells idevices (ipads etc) for a living and owns a company that repairs laptops, smartphones, tablets etc..
I was considering buying an ipad 3 used from him 64GB ($350) but not sure if that's good ? Or smart ?
I really just want something I can web surf with, and watch movies and recorded TV shows from my WHS2011 based media server.
I know Mediabrowser has both android and iOS aps, as does PLEX so that might be the two best options ??? IDK ?? Seems like since wife is Pregnant she's less tolerant of the Denon 3312 AVR and dual subs late at night so I have been watching on my iphone with headphones sometimes and surprised it's nearly acceptable. Thinking a bigger screen would be better though...
What is cheap way to do this ? Literally will only be used for watching or surfing the web inside the home. I already have enough cell phones, laptops and PC's to sink a ship... Trying not to spend too much without making a mistake. Seems like every time I grab a "cheap" option I regret it later not going all in. But I am hoping this is an area where a cheap something will be ok ??
Any better options to do what I want other than a $350 ipad ? Looking for value. I do appreciate faster CPU's, or higher resolution displays but in the end something near 720p and bigger than my cell phone is probably fine.
