Horses for courses. If you can afford the top of the range iPad 3 - 64GB with 4G & monthly data contract - then that's the one to go for. If your friends can't afford that then the iPad 2, wifi only 16GB, is still a brilliant tablet.

Here's a comment I made in my review of the new iPad on my blog which I think sums the decision up:
"If you currently don’t own an iPad or own an original iPad your choice is a new iPad or a 16GB iPad 2. Comparing the 16GB models costs are £399 for the new iPad vs £329 for the iPad 2 (or £289 from the Apple Refurbished Store). Put simply you pay an extra £70 (or £110 refurbished) for the retina display and a better camera. If you want more storage than 16GB then your choice for a new iPad is the new iPad (bearing in mind the 1080p video capability which will take up more space, you may consider 32GB entry level)"
The above UK costs can easily be translated by visiting the online Apple store in your country. In the US, if you're considering a 4G iPad then this adds to the cost, but would also be a benefit.
Having said the above a friend was using my new iPad last week and is considering a new iPad rather than an iPad 2 based on the screen - it is that good.
Buy an iPad 2, so this way you can kick urself for not buying an iPad 3
The reason to buy an iPad 2 is because you don't want to spend what it costs to buy the new iPad. Nothing wrong with that. I'm thinking of recommending my dad to buy an iPad 2 and use the extra to get applecare+.
If you wont care about the retina display on the new ipad and the 5MP iSight camera better go with ipad 2. But note that Ipad 2 charges about 3h at 10% while the new iPAd more than doubled its charging time because of the huge 42.5 WH battery to power the A5x and the LCD.
Few simply step to buy any new gadget.
1) Go to online compare iPad 2 and iPad 3 features
2) Lookout both reviews on review websites
3) Also check the function which suit your requirement
4) Ask to your friend who use iPad
5) Decide your budget and personal requirement for iPad
After finding the all answer of this entire 5 step, you don’t need to any suggestion.
I was in the same situation last week. Not sure if you have a Best Buy where you live, but, I went to one and loaded up a web page with very small fonts on both iPads side-by-side and the iPad 3 is MUCH sharper and easier on the eyes.
Have to agree with you. The screen is certainly easier on the eye. I wear glasses nowadays and anything that makes reading my pad is good for me. Totally loving this new iPad.

Buy the best you can. The iPad 3 is obviously the one to go for and will probably be out of date within a year.
