Ipad 2 now? Or 3 later?
This is a discussion on Ipad 2 now? Or 3 later? within the iPad General Discussions forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; So I'm getting a refund, and its just enough for an iPad 2.

So I'm getting a refund, and its just enough for an iPad 2.
The issue is that I mainly want the 2nd for the cams and the extra boosting performance. But I'm not willing to give up my original iPad. I really want the iPad 3, which would be a more significant step up from my ipad1, and therefore worth it, but thinking that it's release is a whole 10 months away, I'm not sure its worth the wait. Though I'm most likely gonna get the third regardless of what I do now...
So fellow users, what do you all suggest? Should I get the ipad2 and also the 3 when released? just get the 2 now and not the third? Suck it up, and just wait for the thirds release? Should I just be one of those obsessive freaks who collects these 500$ devices?!
Edit: Ok so now my dilemma has changed to iPad 2 now, iPad HD in the Fall or iPad 3 next year....

I would answer you with this: if you are struggling with the idea of upgrading to the next iPad (2 or 3), then it means that you know the iPad 1 is still doing the job... The camera is a nice addition for videoconferencing, but the speed boost, I have my doubts as the iPad 1 is not a slow device by itself. And you'll get accustomed really fast to the new speed that eventually, you won't see it anymore.
Ask yourself, do you want to upgrade because of an actual need or because it would be cool?

Well The iPad is not slow, but I have notice it's been a bit slower at responding to some things (mainly the multitouch gestures and the multitasking bar). And yeah, I do close the apps regularly from the bar when I don't use them.

But though the step from 1 to 2 doesn't really justify me getting it as much as the 1 to 3 does, the fact that the 3 is more than 10 months away might be enough to make me get the 2. I will most likely be able to save up for the 3 in the 10 months... But then I will own 3 iPads; would that be overkill?
Iíd get the iPad2 now and sell your iPad while it still has good value to those who canít afford a new unit. Ten months is a long time to wait in tech-years.
If it's not broken, don't fix it. The iPad 1 is workin for you right now and you have an iPad. Wait to see what's coming up on the third one and decide from there. It's a win win situation if you thing about it. If the third IPad has features you like than get that if you don't think it's a significant step up from the iPad 2 than get the second one which will be cheaper at that time.
iPad 2 64GB 3G Black,
iPad 1 64GB 3G,
iPhone 4 32GB Black,
iPod 3rd Gen. 32 GB White.
The rule of thumb in technology products is to buy every second iteration. On that basis I would be waiting for iPad3.
I have an iPad2 and will be waiting for iPad4 before I upgrade.
I agree. I am going for iPad 3.
I was going to wait for the IPad 3 but decided to get the iPad 2. I am glad that I did. The selling points for me were the fact that the Ipad2 was lighter/easier to hold and the camera which enables me to video conference with my kids in college. You can always sell the IPad 2 and purchase the 3 as previously suggested on this thread. Good luck!
I wanted the Ipad when it first came out but waited and got the ipad2 , now I don't have an ipad because my wife has taken over on it , she loves it so much it is now hers . I am going to wait for the ipad3 to buy one for myself because I can't see having two ipad2s .
Ha ha ha........my wife won't touch my IPad2. She tried it once and hates it. She's stuck on her new laptop with mouse. So, I can't use her as an excuse to get an Ipad3 when they come out. Darn!
