    I have an iPad 2 and I'm considering trading down to a gen 1...the price difference is huge, $350 on apple website! I could use the extra funds for other ventures, that's for sure. Are 1st gen users still loving their iPads? Loosing movie is the biggest con I'm facing at this point. I'm not a big gamer, so slower processor and lessor graphics are a huge factor.

    Can you all help me think of other pro/cons to help me with my decision! Thanks guys...

    Why would you lose iMovie (if that's what you were referring to)? It's available in the App Store and you could simply download it to the iPad1. If you were, in fact, referring to movies that you have on your iPad2, then they could be transferred by sync with iTunes on your PC.

    I have an iPad1 and, like you, don't play games so blindingly fast graphics is not an issue for me. Of course, I'd like an iPad2 when the supply 'drought' has finished but, for now, the iPad1 is fine....and no screen bleeding problems!!

    All the literature I've read lead me to believe iMovie is only applicable with the iPad 2, am I wrong?

    iMovie works fine on my iPad 1.


    I just got my iPad 1, and would love to have 2. One for other trade seems fair, but paying you something extra for it??? I rather buy a new one from Apple.

    I dont use app store, so I must have missed it. But indeed it works on iPad one, latest version at that.

    To be honest, two core CPU is better for web browsing. Web is sluggish on iPad one.

    I own both and I would say if you def could use the money go for it, seems like your fine with loosing iMovie, but there is a way to get it on iPad one. I personally like iMovie on the iPhone 4 better, for the fact that it can capture much nicer video Nativly then iPad 2! IMO

    Also I personally feel the iPad one was built better! Although iPad 2 wins in sexiness lol! I love my chubby pad! I am never selling it! But I will indeed sell iPad 2 for an iPad 3. Just a thought. Hey you Might be able to sell the 2 for more than you bought it for I believe supply is still tight so you can also make some money and make the chubby pad be even cheaper! :ipad-front: ;) (do it lol)

    I would have been ok with kepping my first gen ipad but I was running out of space and I had to go to a 32 gig model so I went ahead and upgraded to the ipad 2.
