I just tried out an iPad 2 with my iPad beside it. My primary concern was graphics and touchscreen performance, as I am an artist who uses my iPad for sketching. The only app both had in common was Zen Brush, and there was every but as much brush lag on the iPad 2 as on my iPad. I wanted the 2 to be faster, but it just wasn't. I am now much less interested in the iPad 2.
