Just purchased an iPad 2 refurb from the Apple Store. Watching it travel from China to now Memphis TN and hopefully to me on Monday, April 30. Long time Apple user from the days of the Apple II+ through a series of Macintoshes. Currently have a 2008 Macbook and a 3rd generation iPod. Getting the iPad to have something with a larger screen than the iPod to carry with me most of the time. Decided on the iPad 2 16GB wi-fi refurb because of cost considerations. Higher screen resolution on the new iPad is nice, but I think that for my purposes, the iPad 2 will work well. Looking forward to suggestions on and assistance with using my new toy.
