We cannot deny that the iPad is a very expensive gadget. It is so expensive that some people have to starve themselves to have one. Old iPad users tend to sell old iPad so that they can have a new one. Some cannot even afford to buy apps so they just use the basic functions of the iPad and enjoy the built-in apps instead.
