    Also the screen seems better. Can't say why offhand but maybe it's the reduced glass thickness.

    Very happy with the upgrade and my daughters very happy with their iPads1
    Thanks! thats the review im looking for. I guess ill be sticking to my pad for awhile if that's the case
    iPads are like TV's. You start off with one that gets shared. Then before you know it someone just has to have their own. So we get another. Finally, everyone has their own. We don't share phones do we?

    Look at the thread " How did I ever get along without my iPad".

    Performance wise, iPad2 is much better ... this will show up in more demanding apps, like iMovie and Garageband. There are new higher performance Games that are being developed. iPad won't be able to play them as they don't have the graphics support. However, iPad is fine for e-mail, internet stuff, puzzles, even word processing, etc.

I wanted the new bits they added and found them worth getting a new one, i got twice the memory and it cost me 50 quid more than my first, good news for me.
    And my point at the start was that whatever you buy, people are going to expect more than they get, your never going to get it as it is held back for the next model. You will land up when the ipad 3 comes out there will be people saying well it should have had this that and more, ill wait for the next. If you can justify to yourself then thats all that matters. Have a great time with which everone you guys have or like.
    I don't think Apple is holding back for something to put in the next model. Here's why I think that way. Apple is in the process of developing cutting edge technology ... look at the combo GSM/CDMA special chip it takes time and effort, testing to do that. It just wasn't available til this fall. Apple is implementing Thunderbolt in all their desktop and high performance laptops, including AIR. They hold a patent on the concepts to put Thunderbolt in iPad via an adapter. Now they just have to add the controllers to make it all operate. And remember one thing, it is the software that makes Apple so much better. iOS5 is coming ... but it will be September. There are no other computers with Thunderbolt offered. Before you know it, Apple's will be transferring back and forth at warp speed, while the rest are still diddling along with USB2.0 ... OMG.

    So it is all about working towards their master plan. Most of the competitors didn't even start til Apple had sold 15 million units in a market segment that didn't even exist. Now Apple is leading, and has a huge head start. So when you say they are holding back, it is only because it takes time to put out a finished product and full support. The competition is scrambling to play catchup with not ready for market offers. Look at Xoom, Galaxy, Playbook, etc. Enough, but you get the drift.

    Try reading just what i said, whatever is brought out, there will be those that say it should have had this in it or that in it. And Apple will always hold certain things back to go into there next as they are working on the next all the time. You said it yourself (only holding back because of putting a finished product out) Im not knocking Apple, i have always bought there products, they are always quality build.

    Apple own the Market. Nothing comes close...Galaxy HTC etc. Just not anywhere near. And we have the dual core CPU. I used to be a hard core gamer.... Good when hanging around studios waiting to my turn to track in bass or whatever. I think I will buy Dead Space, just to see if it's as good as the reviews say. Not going to fill this with games though

    Of course. Sell your iPad 1 online or craigslist. Then buy an iPad 2! It's all about the new toy!

    Pretty much every Android tablet has a dual core CPU as well though. It remains to be seen if the Tegra 2 can be brought up to the speed of the A5 through drivers, but the Samsung CPU/GPU in the new Galaxy Tab is actually faster. I agree though.. I don't have my iPad for games.
