    I have a first edition iPad. While the iPad 2 looks cool, it doesn't seem to be that much better for me to justify the upgrade. However, there is one issue I have with the iPad that would cause me to upgrade. The 1st generation iPad seems sluggish to me when I open large pdf files in Good Reader or IAnnotate. Is the iPad 2 noticeably better in this regard?

    I have never owned iPad 1 but as iPad 2 has better CPU and double ram it definitely should give better results

    Try Cloud Reader and it can open very large PDFs without problem. iBook is not good opening large PDFs.

    There was another thread on this a few weeks back. The general consensus was that the iPad 2 was significantly faster with large PDFs in GoodReader. Not supper lightning faster than the eye faster, but faster.

    Sorry for the repeating the topic. I tried doing a search on pdf and it was too common of a term.

    No problem. Searching is always a good idea, but doesn't always find what you want. Which is why I only mentioned the thread instead of searching for and posting a link. :)

    I only mentioned the thread so I could spread the blame around, just in case you got an iPad 2, disagreed, and came back with blood in your eye. ;)
