    Trying to sell my first gen 32gb 3g, but so far no luck.

    So right now, it is pretty much over, though it is nice to have a second one laying around the house for easy access, when the iPad 2 happens to be in another room.

    We can BOTH read The Daily at the same time, and I no longer have to play Words With Friends on my itty bitty iPhone!
    That alone is worth the 500+, ISN'T it?

    I kept it because my son loved it.

    He is the only 2 almost 3 year old with an iPad that I know.

    They actually work out as great educational devices. He plays numbers, ABC, matching, sing along, read along (he just listens), and of course Angry Birds!

    That is a sensible approach. I was impatient and now have it the other way around.

    Hmm, I don't get an iPad 2, as Im not considering to buy it, as though the iPad 2 is slimmer, lighter, but except the iMovie and Garageband are great upgrade, think about with iMovie maybe I don't need the iFunia video converter to do my video converting and editing~ However, to me, no SD slot, no Retina display, no much surprise...
    I think I would like to stick with the 1gen iPad and wait for iPad 3 ;)

    Nope he's not. My 3 year old has had one for a while. He has speech and language processing issues and there are a ton of apps that are good extensions of his therapy. Plus he loves to watch monster jam videos on YouTube :p

    Umm..I don't notice a big diff but i gotta say i love how thin it is...I think 1 was built better the volume rocker and buttons feel more durable the speaker set up seems better than the drilled holes...I think apple might be cutting cost like other manf's..I notice some speed diff but knowing it has double ram and dual core make me feel better...Did i mention how i love how thin it is! I think if it wasn't for the thin part i would have returned it and stuck with 1...But when i'm at hoem i pull off the smart cover and just enjoy how thin it is!...lol...looking foward to the galaxy 10.1 in june!

    I locked in a price for my ipad1 the week before the iPad 2 launched (gazelle.com). Bought my iPad 2 on launch day. Then I finally shipped off the old one, and I received the check last week.

    No regrets, I like everything about the new one so much better. Can't wait for the 1080p iPad 2 games to hit the app store! :)

    Selling mine. Have a buyer who will pay $600 and will wait until my iPad 2 arrives in a few days.

    I'm keeping my 16gig wifi iPad 1 because it's Jailbroke and I love the tweaks and customizations that come out EVERYDAY in Cydia! I'm sure once I can Jailbreak my iPad 2, I will sell it. I will probably put it on Craigslist for 325. I know I will get that much because most people on there are charging 350. I just sold a friend of mines iPhone 4 16gig for 500! It wasn't even able to be unlocked!(4.1 baseband). Craigslist is a great way to sell items locally, but you got to be careful who you deal with....

    Or $700 shipped (tracked, fully insured) to anywhere in the U.S. 3 months old (I had to replace my original one back in January), under warranty through May, in PERFECT condition, always with anti-glare screen protector (leaving that on and throwing in another new, unused one) and in a Macally Flexitpad clear case (like the Belkin GripVue), which will stay with it, plus the original box, documentation, cable and AC adapter PLUS a full-sized Bluetooth keyboard.

    Too good to let go.

    I just got a ZaggMate for the iPad 1. It's not going anywhere. The iPad 2 is in field test. Each one has different job sets. Common data is in the Cloud.
