Ipad, Tablet or .

My daughter has accidently broken her ipad 2 and we are thinking of maybe replacing it but with what we are not sure. She is 15 and doing NCEA and a lot of her work was on her ipad and it has been in to get fixed but is costing a lot to get fixed so thinking it not worth it and getting something else just not sure what though. She doesn't want a galaxy tablet (not sure why as I love Samsung but then that's just me) and not sure if we should get her a different phone or ipad / tablet any ideas thanks

An iPad is a tablet.

Anyway, why not stick with what she's used to?

In the Android world, the only tablets worth looking at are the Nexus 9, the Nexus 7, the Galaxy Tab S and the Sony Xperia Z2 (in my opinion).

Before a decision is made (and I'm considering getting the microwave popcorn out) teach her how to back up important documents to the cloud.

iPad 2 can get on special now for $299

2nd hand good condition 3/4 can be had for $300 to $400.

Don't buy an iPad 3 - they're horribly slow and were basically a mistake in the first place (that's why they were so short lived).

4 is fine but they hold their value well enough that youre better off buying new.

where can we get the ipad 2 for that price ? and yes I told her that all need to be sent to the cloud if she has an ipad again

Refurbished on 1day earlier this week, not much help but they will have them again.

I disagree on the iPad 3rd gen, I'm still rocking one and its fine. A lot faster than the 2. Was so short lived cause apple changed to Lightning plug and wanted to be universal across devices

It is absolutely not faster than a 2.

The problem with the 3 is the screen resolution was quadrupled from what the 2 had without adding enough extra graphics horsepower to actually drive it.
