New ipad2 or refurbished iPad 4th generation?

Looking for an iPad for a gift. 16GB is more than enough for what it will be intended for, so that's not a factor. Is new really better? I have read the specs for both and leaning toward 4th gen due to retina display, etc. Any suggestions?

  • When Possible always buy the Biggest & Newest Model your chequebook can handle, Be Careful 16GB is not a lot at all , Remember that iOS takes some of that space, so does other configurations.
