Sure, but I've just stopped thinking in terms of comparing/competing between stuff a long time ago. Reason being, again, there will never be an end to the comparisons - it's a given that you'd expect a newer product will have better hardware and specs. It's a meaningless pissing contest. At the end of the day, the iPad, whether 1 or 2, is just a material thing. A useful thing, a cool thing, a fun thing - but ultimately still a thing which, at the end of the day, anyone who really wants to can save up and buy.
