iPad 2,4 - The Improved iPad
When I discovered that along side the New iPad, Apple had released a new model of the iPad 2, the "2,4", the search was on to find one. Thanks to the assistance of a few people on the web and a very helpful guy at the Apple Store in Perth I was able to find out which serial numbers determined which iPad 2 was the improved version.
After phoning and visting a number of Big W stores I eventually found what I was hoping to find at Big W Livingston (WA). The lady that served me was very helpful and patient with my unusual query.
Anyway I purchased what I was hoping to be the iPad 2,4 and sure enough after installing and running Linpack (free app) I was over the moon to discover that it was indeed an iPad 2,4.
Now you're all probably wondering, what on earth is an iPad 2,4. Well it's the 16gb wifi only iPad 2 (black or white) which has a smaller CPU and thus has an alleged 11.7 hours battery life (compared to the original iPad 2 which only has 10.1 hrs, same as all other iPads actually). However upon testing I've found that the battery will last closer to 20 hours. Awesome!
The reason I've given Quality a rating of 4 stars is that the wifi signal is showing low whereas my iPad 1 sitting right next to it shows a full signal. I also experienced a wifi dropout (just the one so far) which I've never had with the iPad 1. But this issue, if I recall correctly, has been known to occur with all iPad 2's since they were first released. It could be something to do with a smaller antenna or wifi chip...???
But anyway, overall, after putting up with iPad 1 for so long, iPad 2 is so much faster and responsive.
Highly recommend this product over the New iPad (iPad 3) which has issues.
I made my purchase at Big W instead of Apple Store as the price was way cheaper plus I earned Reward points.
Oh and not to forget, if you're interested in getting the 2,4 version, check the back of the box before you buy and ensure the serial number starts with either DMPJ or DMQJ. Again not all stores have them. Those with newly received stock should have them. Good luck!
