if youre getting the new one, with retina display, girrl do yo thang.
But, if you're going for the old one, nah son. I used my bro's (his is the one before retina display) um my kindle fire (first kindle fire not hd) gives a clearer picture. My 1995 t.v. I have right now gives a clearer picture, I wouldn't use it to watch movies unless you really want to.
Btw, you can buy apples refurbished on the apple site, I'm all about new things, but my mom bought one refurbished and you'd never know, it works wonderfully and looks brand new, etc etc.
