    Depends on what you want in an iPad and how much you can afford. What do you want to use it for? Photos and games? Go 3rd Gen. Cost, good enough camera and general all round iPad. Go 2nd. Think about what you want it for and what you do most with it. I have gone from a 1st Gen to the 3rd because I love photos. And the quality is AMAZING.

    Buye New iPad (3). I have both and the screen on the New iPad is so much better than the 2. I gave my wife the 2 when the 3 came out. Now, I hate using my old iPad 2.

    In the history of computing the wise choice is to get the latest, most memory and fastest processor you can afford.

    Whatever you will buy will be out of date in weeks. Whatever you think your storage needs are will be exceeded in months.

    My only exceptions are - don't upgrade software or OS until a month or more after release. Let someone else be the beta testers.

    Same with new hardware.

    Why are you confused? You can read about the different features, right? Isn't there plenty of info out there about the new features? It makes me think that Apple should have just done away with the old iPad so some people wouldn't be confused.

    iPad 3. Purchased the iPad 2 then compared it to the screen of a family member's iPad 3. Reading text on the screen was like night and day. The text was very clear and easy to read on the iPad 3, without the need to zoom in. Text seemed a bit fuzzy on the iPad 2. My eyes didn't strain while reading text on the iPad 3, in comparison to the iPad 2. I returned the iPad 2 for an iPad 3, and have been happy ever since.
    I also like the voice dictation feature on the iPad 3 as well.

    I had the same choice and after looking at both I went for the iPad 3. The screen is what did it for me. Also there was only about £100 between the two.

    I would have gone for the iPad 3 but money was tight. I got an apple refurbished iPad 2 for £399 instead of £559 for the iPad 3.
    Found it hard to justify the large price difference for my particular needs.

    The iPad 2 will do just fine for you. You should have time to get familar with it before the drool factor sets in for the 4th generation iPad.

    No one has mentioned it but to me the dictation feature is worth the extra money and upgrade from 2 to 3. The dictation feature is just
    very convenient and quite the timesaver. I'm dictating this right now and can dictate so much faster than I can type.

    Is this iPad 3's screen visibility that much greater than the two?
