Right, I'm faced with a predicament.

My friend has asked if I would like to buy his iPad 2 off him for £200.It's used but in mint condition. I said I would think about it.

I've done some googling into different tablets and came across the kindle fire hd. Now I have a kindle and love it. But it is an old model and I would quite fancy an upgrade. But I also know that a kindle is integrated into the iPad, so that doesn't really help me.

The kindle is £50 cheaper, and I have read specs that say its on a par with the nexus 7 which is good. I have a decent phone (htc one x) so I'm not too bothered about the apps.

Which would you most recommend?

IPad 2 beats everything. Sounds stupid, but it does, and the ones in the stores are probs more expensive if its in great condition. If you have the money. Get it.

The ipad 2 is better hands down. You can do more with it.

I had a Kindle once and it's rubbish. Sure the adverts make it look good but it's completely useless… Ipad 2 is MUCH better. Although it does cost a bit more, it's worth it:)

I Would go for the Ipad 2, I had one and it was great, Apple product are always better quality, and there so much more apps for the ipad then the kindle,
So for me It would be the ipad, specially for such a price.
But its you who must do the decision cause its you whose going to use for the next 3 years.
Hope i helped.

Hey there, I just wanted to let you know a great place to get an iPad or any electronics for a good price is Kudu Bids. They are an online store that offers deals each day to it's members. I got a brand new iPad on there for more than half the retail price! They have a lot of great products for sale each day so if you want to save some money on a iPad check out Kudu Bids. Trust me, it is well worth it! KuduBids.com

Review from an owner of iPad 3 and Kindle Fire HD, should help you out on this decision:
www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0083PWAPW/

You would get the new Kindle Fire HD (With better features) vs Used iPad 2.So my preference would definitely be the Kindle Fire HD. The features which are better than iPad 2:
- 1280*800 @ 216PPI vs 1024*786 @137PPI
- Front camera for KF HD has 1280*1024 (1.3MP) while iPad 2 has 960 x 720 Pixel camera (0.7MP)
- HDMI out vs Tv out
- 1.2Ghz dual core HD processor vs Dual core processor
- 1Gb RAM vs 512MB RAM
