Would you buy an IPAD 1 now?
I was just getting ready to pick up an Ipad at Walmart after seeing there is a Music Video Playlist available on the APP Store.
Now I see the Ipad2 is going to be released.
I guess I could still buy it, and enjoy it then return it before the 15 days, this way I can see if there are any bugs in the Ipad 2 when released.

I'm sure you've seen the 'iPad2' topic area on the iPad Forum website and all the videos.
OK - you can get an iPad1 for a lower price - I think I'd advise (and my advice isn't worth much!) to try an iPad1 out and see if it suits you. That lower price could be attractive....

Here's a question. Which is the better value? An iPad 1 16gb WiFi refurb from the Apple Store for $349 or the same version iPad 2 for $499. I'm happy with my iPad 1 and if I were buying today I would probably go for $349. There's just not enough new features (for me) to justify an extra $150.
Now, iPad 3 will be a different story.
That's a good point. Were I buying mine today, I might just do that-get a $349 refurb. I consider that a deal and a half! I wonder how many people are going to go for this as their first option.
Just to ask about these refurbished machines. I had cause last week to have my iPad changed. I was assured it would be for a brand new machine and not a previously used one. Now I am wondering if they would be so low as to dupe me...? I do hope not.
Heard a similar conversation next to me at the Genius bar with an iphone4 being changed. He was also given same assurance after asking same question.

Generally they give you a refurbished unit, but it also depends on availability. However, I have always bought refurbished units when I can and have no problems. They look and act the same as new. My wife is still using her 14" iBook G4 that we bought refurbished years ago. Do not even try to take it from her. And when she does give me permission to upgrade her laptop, my BIL is waiting for it.
I would consider buying an iPad1 only if they were half price or less for a new unit.
Money grows on the tree of persistence.
I'm sure most would at that price. However, with the release of the iPad 2 they are more than reasonable. If you want a garage sale priced iPad 1 check out Craigsloss or Evilbay.

It would have continued to do so if the iPad2 was never announced.
