Man steve jobs should start a religion with his cult following. People are selling their ipads for low 200's people are standing in line for almost all day. Just to get an ipad that is pretty much the same thing. Most of them already or did own the first ipad. I can understand wanting one but waiting in line for one never. Not even a 10 person line would i wait. I will live by this statement apple products are and always will be overpriced. If the ipad cost less money wouldn't more people buy them and buy more apps which in return would still be more money.
Apple is a great example of a successful business but I don't understand the need to control everything. To me it's like if I made the ipad first but I put my face as the background and nobody can ever change it. People would be like I love the ipad but can you remove your face as would like a different background and I say tough don't buy it if you have a problem. That's pretty much apples stance on alot of things.
Apple will eventually lose this battle to android, it might take sometime but unless apple has some kind of alien technology, it is guaranteed that android will overtake it in the next few years. But for the meantime a 200 ipad is a really good deal and apple make really quality products.
I will own an ipad2 when prices go under 400 in the next few months which it as the more people that buy the more people sell and sellers competing and get desperate leads to low prices.
To any potential new ipad owners here is my advice and you will never lose:
1. Craigslist is your best friend
2. Lowball everybody
3. Be patient, its just a toy you can wait
4. Sell before next announcement, and always sell more than you paid. (If you bought low you will be making a profit)
5. And you never need more than 16gb and 3G is a waste of money (get a smartphone tether for free, and unlimited data helps)
