    Hello iam new to the forum and wanted to ask a few questions.. Ive never really owned an ipad personally and iam a little confused on whether i should get ipad 2 or 3. Iam well aware of the new upgrades on the new ipad camera retina screen etc..If someone can offer any advice on pros and cons from both i would greatly appreciate it. Just dont wanna get ipad2 then regret it. In terms of money i could get either one.

    thanks

    If you have the money I would go with the 3. Why spend money on an older product when you can afford the newest most recent one.

    Applechick is right since money isn't an object. And you've already stated that you are well aware of the upgrades on the new iPad over the iPad so I'm confused as to what else there really is left for us to tell you!

    From all the reports I have read there don't seem to be any major cons to the iPad 3, so I would go with that .

    I was having the same dilemma between the 2 and 3. I know it looks the same side by side. But I went ahead and spent the extra 100$. You don't wanna buy the 2 and then say I should have got the 3. You want to get the newest technology when it is available. There are rumors speculating about a mini iPad that might be announced on June 11 if you can wait till then.
    But my opinion get the 3

    I guess you'll have to elaborate on this statement since it doesn't make any sense at all without some comments attached to it!

    Yes I think it's worth going for the 3, if you intend to keep it for quite awhile you might as well have the latest so you can get as many updates as possible for the longest time. Besides its amazing !

    This is going to be my first iPad also and I decided to buy the new one. The display is a major plus for me because I read a lot and I like that it has a better camera. So I think you should go with the 3.

    My wife just got her ipad and when she and I were in the store you could clearly see the difference. I just went and bought the 64GB for myself. You should consider the $$$$ and make sure that you buy the 4G version if you remotely think that you will ever need it. Keeping in mind that you can use your smart phone as a hotspot. We love them and the 3 is much nicer than the 2 and I don't think I will ever need my laptop again.

    You've made the right choice as long as you are happy with it for the price you pay. I am with the 3.

    To my eyes, the retina display is worth much more to me than $100. It pays and pays and repays for itself every day.
