I got one also and paid £206 about a year ago. Been spot on .
I have ipad air 2 with latest ios and it's the highest spec one. Browsing using safari or chrome is painfully slow now. Wouldnt recommend
I use the wife’s iPad Pro occasionally and it makes you realise how slow the Air 2 actually is - it provides context.
I just bought a ipad2018 from cex for 250 grade b and not a scratch on it but the new version comes out on the 25th I think
It’s nothing to do with 32 or 64-bit, but the CPU architecture in the Air is 2 generations newer and it has twice the RAM so it is a lot quicker. Though I probably wouldn’t buy one now, the Air 2 or original Pro would be a better buy for longer-term, depends what you want to do with it.
