    Hi, I'm not much of a tech-y but what is the difference between iPad 2 and iPad? I am a happy camper with my iPad, but there are now iPad 2 and iPad3? Is it worth the investment to "upgrade", so to say, to another iPad (i.e. getting iPad2/3) ?

    If you are thinking of upgrading, it is worth waiting for the iPad 3, even though we are not sure what the upgrades will be. I upgraded to the iPad 2 even though I still loved my iPad 1! I have no regrets but I suspect the iPad 3 will be even better....better camera for a start.

    I agree with michali. Wait for the 3. The display on the iPad 3 is supposedly much clearer compared to the iPad 2 in the level of 2x2 or 3x3 pixels. In the big picture, unless you're running extremely high-res Blu-Ray videos, you won't notice any difference in terms of display. The 3 is a bit thicker than the 2, but the 3 is Siri readily available, whereas the 2 isn't. Aside from display resolution and Siri, there isn't much of a difference. Same screen size, same cost. If you're not AS tech savvy, wait for the 3 to get a bit more savvy. If you really don't care, go for the 2. However, if you're looking for the 3G model, wait for the 3 if you want to get your feet wet with iPad.

    No one knows the dimensions or specs of the 3 yet. It's all speculation right now.

    for me the main difference is the ability to mirror a video output display. the iphone 4 and iphone 4s had this change as well. I really want to upgrade both of my devices.. ipad 1 and iphone 4 to the new ones so I can hook them up to a projector but its a big investment.

    The features of Ipad1 and Ipad2 are most likely the same. Check out the latest Ipad, its cool. Then its up to you to decide if you still want to keep the old ipad that you have or you can trade in your ipad. There are heaps of websites where you can check out free quotes.

    iPad vs iPad2 vs iPad3

    iPad2 has cameras, iPad does not. iPad3 is rumored to have better resolution cameras, a good thing as those on the iPad2 are terrible.

    iPad2 has a processor greatly faster than that on iPad. Rumored to be yet faster on the iPad3.

    iPad and iPad2 have same screen resolution. iPad3 is rumored to have much better "retina display" like the iPhone 4 has.

    Bear in mind that any information at all about the iPad3 is speculation and rumor. I had the iPad first and gifted it to one of my daughters when I upgraded to the iPad2. I'll probably do that again (I have three daughters) in March when the iPad3 comes out.

    From my opinion, if you don't by yet, just wait until new iPad unveiled so can choose, also ipad2 will be lease expensive
