    It look nice, but bottom line for me personally, and the way I use the iPAD, I don't seem to lose that much.

    1. I am not into creating Music.
    2. I am not into editing Video.
    3. I am taking pictures with a real Camera.
    4. Video conf is nice but I hardly need it.
    5. Smart Cover ? big deal

    1. It is 31% thinner - Good.
    2. I weigh 15% less - Very handy when reading in bed.
    3. Fast Internal processor - That one I may miss. But maybe not.
    4. HDMI - Very handy. But I use my PC HDMI allready.

    Any othe Major Point guys ?

    I still love my iPad 1 and don't see a need to upgrade but would trade my 1 for a 2 in a second.

    The price is great, I wonder what this will do for the used price of an iPad 1????

    Typical apple, I can't believe they didn't even raise the memory, memory is so cheap. Anyway I got mine used for 350 so if anybody wants mine for 400 with an apple case that is the only way I will upgrade. Engadget already said the a5 doesn't make a difference because if it's dual core no apps are even made to handle that it will just act as one.

    And I'm I the only one that hates the new body it's too curvy. And I can't believe the body leaked again since it is the same as ces show

    You may have forgotten the 9x faster graphics?

    The more I read the more I realise the only clinchers would be the faster chip.

    Well I just bought 5.

    It's just a statement. It's not out yet.

    It sounds good for some but I already had decided that the 1 would be fine for 2 generations anyhow. I'm buying a new camera body this Spring and my Ipad still does what I need (and I do use it a lot for quite diverse things) so I kniw my priorities LOL.

    As for reading in bed I love my Propup. i don't even have to hold it. A good $25 spent.

    Apple doesn't specify the RAM, but it is safe to assume that iPad 2 has 512MB.

    I think it has 512mb. Kinda low. And it does not have 9x better graphics processing. If it did it would be like 2x better than any technology out today. Its a marketing thing. It might be 9x better in one respect, not overall.

    can't wait trip see out benchmarks though. Love the power vr sgx chip it uses.
