    Oh good God, I’ve been pondering this for days and I have the iPad 1.  Okay, so here’s what I’m thinking: The 2 has the front and back camera.  Didn’t think that was a big deal, BUT you use the entire screen as a viewfinder and you can film too.  Plus, Skype with the front cam. Sweet!  It has a USB port, which mine doesn’t.  It’s smaller and lighter, blah, blah, blah. The screen is more high def.etc. Check out some of the reviews, they are more in-depth and professional than me. lol

    That said, I arranged to sell iPad1 to Gazelle for $340.00 and then I would turn around and get the 2 so the upgrade would cost me about $250 (I have the 16G wifi with optional at & t plan and it’s plenty of storage for me).  BUT the tsunami has created a HUGE shortage of parts and they are already sold out of 2s all over the place.  I don’t think I could part with mine for that long, so I don’t know what to do.

    Long story short, get the 2 if you can get your hands on it.  It’s the same price and you get the benefit of the upgrades.

    SO has been wanting an iPad and was waiting for the 2 to come out. He’s into all the specs of these things…some are what PP mentioned, another is that the processor is apparently a big upgrade too. So my vote it iPad 2.

    I’d get #2, partly for that freakin awesome cover, and partly for the cams.
