    Both my wife and I have iPads and ONLY since the upgrade to 5.01 have we suffered apps dropping out. We have manually tried to keep the memory usage as low as possible but it seems to make no difference. My iPad 2 colleagues do not experience this. I wonder if the developers have pushed to OS a bit beyond iPad 1? It is the only fault with a superb piece of kit - the most useful piece of IT I have evr owned.

    Yep. Pretty much every app is made for iPad 2.
    If only there was a way to upgrade the ram.....

    If they let people do that then there'd be no reason to release a new model every year

    I have iPad 1 and 2, both on 5.0.1. I'm definitely seeing more Safari crashes on both iPads since upgrading, especially on iPad 1. My diagnostics log shows repeated RAM crashes.

    I think Apple has pushed the firmware to a point that it's disruptive to owners. If they were upfront about things, they would warn owners, so they could decide whether to upgrade, or give people the chance to downgrade. As it is, they leave customers with devices that are sometimes less functional after upgrades. That happened with the iPhone 3, for instance, and led to at least one class-action lawsuit that I know of. I don't think the claimants won, but I see this as poor customer service, rather than a legal issue. And I say that as someone who isn't sue happy and who has gotten a lot enjoyment and use out of my iDevices. My iPhone 3 became pretty much unusable after the last upgrade, because Web surfing became Web doggie paddling instead.

    Given my experiences with iPhone 3 and now iPad 1 and 2, I probably will steer clear of coming firmware upgrades on iPad 1 and 2 if possible, to prolong their functionality.

    Yep, all those big, graphical apps require a ton of RAM. I really want to play Office Jerk, but it always crashes!
    All of us iPad 1 owners have been forgotten.

    Not forgotten. Every new apps and games, on every platform (PC, console, mobile), can be predicted will have a higher hardware requirement. For PC, we can upgrade any part as needed. But mobile devices, even laptop, can not do that. It is not their intention forgetting older stuffs, but technology demands more.
    A couple of years back, the biggest game capacity was around 10gb. So with a 250gb hdd u can install tons of 'em. But now, pc games are geettig bigger. 22gb is not special. So with the same hdd, u can only install a few. Do u have to upgrade ur hdd? Only if u need to.
    The answer is the same on ipad. Since we can't upgrade any hardware in it, the only question is, do u have to buy the new ipad 2 or 3? Only if u need to.

    I disagree. The CPU, RAM, and HDD in my laptop are all user-replaceable. I can upgrade my laptop any day.
