Yes, it is. If you do not play games and if you just want to use your tablet to check you e-mail, browse on the web and read a book, iPad 2 is still a great choice for you.
Even though iPad 2 has its limitations, it is a good device to have in your house and maybe replace your old laptop. If you are not heavy user, iPad 2 is still the best option in the market. The touch screen works flawlessly and it is very accurate. Besides, it still has the recent updates from apple.
What about flash? Forget what other people are saying, iPad may not have flash but you can find apps that work just the same. You can open websites that need flash on your iPad.
The cameras on iPad 2, however, do not have a good quality. While the front camera is still VGA, The quality is good for video conferencing. The problem is when you want to take a nice picture using the rear camera which is less than 1 megapixel. The pictures do not look good and there is not flash.
Should I buy the iPad 2?
Yes, if you like a good quality product and do not mind having the second generation iPad without retina display. iPad 2 is still great for those who want to experience all that a tablet has to offer.
