It wasn’t that long ago that Apple debuted its first large touchscreen tablet, the iPad. While it has since created many more versions, the original iPad still stands up very well to its newer siblings and offers plenty of features for anyone who just needs basic tablet functionality. The iPad 1st Generation 64 GB model with Wi-Fi is a solid machine and great for many users or as the first computing device for a kid or teenager in your life.
Sure, newer iPads may have more bells and whistles, but sometimes that can be more frustrating or distracting than helpful. If you only need basic, straightforward functions like Internet access, touchscreen capability and a few apps, then a simpler tablet like the iPad 1st Gen can be a breath of fresh air. Its simpler layout and limited functions are also a good way to give preteens and teenagers their own device to use for schoolwork while keeping them from getting in trouble or getting too distracted. And even if the hardware is older, you still get access to the full app store, with all of its amazing tools for work and play.
The display still holds up as well, with a beautiful picture that is great for playing videos or games. A strong Wi-Fi connection helps you access all your favorite sites or download important information from work. Some kind of mobile device has become almost essential for many jobs, and the lightweight iPad 1st Gen can help you take your work with you easily or make the most of your commute. It’s a versatile device that has aged well.
