    I'll the Apple stores accept a trade in and give an allowance toward the iPad 3 .? Doubt it but thought I would ask.

    No, unless you are within the 30? Or 60? Day return period.

    Sell it to Amazon.com. That's what I did with my iPad 2.

    Thanks, think I will stay with the 2 for this yr. it's 3G and 32 gig so a nice little system for me. Been using it here in Aruba to Skype, pay bills, email, and generally staying connected with family in the US. It has performed well with local wi fi. Given the roll out for the new one, probably best to keep this and get my money's worth.

    Honestly the iPad 3 isn't really much of an "upgrade". The biggest thing you get is a clearer screen, which is pretty useless unless you are doing something that requires excellent graphics. IMO, apple failed with the new ipad

    That's why Apple did not call the new unit iPad3. Wait for iPad3 for the "major upgrade".

    Don't get me wrong. I like Apple products. But too many people overhype them for what they really are, especially in phones when the android platform is ahead of iPhone

    Does Amazon offer better prices for buy-back, then say Craigslist or Ebay?

    Neither of those guarantee you a known amount. Amazon does as along as you properly state the condition of your device. I think if you want to maximize your returns, use eBay or CL and hold out for the price you feel you need. If you want quick, easy, and certain, then consider amazon or a similar service (amazon offered me more than gazelle did). Ymmv.

    I don't think it is overhyping if the features offer something meaningful to the person in question. Frankly, the screen resolution of the 1st and 2rd gen iPads were a big issue for me. Thus the new screen is exactly what I need and want on such a device (I used mine everyday since I got it for both work and play). This may not be so for you and others, which is why it is good to have options.

    I agree, options are a great thing. Some will find the new features worth getting or upgrading to and others like me will just stick with the iPad 2. All good.

    The "new" iPad also has a quad-core processor a significant upgrade over the iPad 2 plus a full gig of RAM
