Default [Q] Is this worth buying used for $80?

My kids broke my Lenovo Ideatab A2109 and I need a quick replacement. Would this be good for $80? Anything I should watch out for? Thanks.

$80 is a great deal for a tablet that, 3 years later, is still receiving dev work from the community and on CM11 / Kit Kat, among other things.

16 or 32GB?

32GB for certain, 16GB probably...

Some of it depends on the shape it's in.

These aren't half bad tablets - pair it with a bluetooth keyboard and a touchstone and it's pretty much great.

The batteries are pretty old, so they don't last. If your happy with a short battery life buy it.

Honestly, some of this will depend on who owned it previously, and how they abused or charged the batteries... and the rom you're running on it...

My daughter will watch between 4 and 5 hours of netflix before having to find a charger... which I don't consider bad... *shrug*
