    I think apple really got it down pat with the iPad2- the apps are better and it does not freeze anymore (my first one did and was slow w everything).

    Interesting... One of my fellow employees who updated from the iPad 1 to the iPad 2 said the exact opposite! He said that he's noticed apps crashing more than they did on his iPad 1!!

    Anyone else have any input on this?

    I have both and agree with the first post. My iPad 2 works far better.

    The iPad 2 works better. Multitasking, or just switching between apps is much smoother and apps crash less. On iPad 1 apps were often force closed due to low memory.

    Same here. My iPad2 flies in comparison to my first Gen.

    Yep, the Ipad 2 is a great device. I was going to get an Ipad 1 but waited for the Ipad 2 to come out. And when I compare it to others who have the first Ipad you can tell a difference in the speed.

    Mine is not iPad 2, but works well too. Well, iPad 2 is working better, I think.

    As a developer, this thing caused us nightmares for a while. It is much, much better from a tech viewpoint, but the graphics drivers that sit under the hood are not as stable as for the old iPad.

    We've fixed our own problems, but I think moving forward it's bound to get better as new firmware updates come out.

    That's interesting to know, thanks for that! Always good to see from a dev viewpoint.

    I have 1 and 2. I still like my 1 just fine. 2 is faster, but 1 is no slouch. My apps are stable on both. Both of mine are in identical cases and colors (black), and I often forget which one I'm using. I don't play games, though, and maybe there's a big difference between 1 and 2 when it comes to that; I wouldn't know.

    I bought a second iPad because I wanted a backup while charging and synching. I would've been happy with a second iPad 1, but figured iPad 2 might get a generation or two more in firmware updates.

    I bought my husband an iPad 1 on clearance, and he's happy with it.
