    At this time would it be worth it to upgrade to 4.2? What would I lose or gain functions with this upgrade?

    I upgraded on the first day it was available. I really forgot how my iPad was before the 4.2 update. If you are not a jailbreaker, upgrading to 4.2 will turn your iPad into a new machine.

    Jail broke made sense for iPhone to unlock the device, I simply don't see a reason to jailbreak on iPad.
    Back to the original topic, UPGRADE right now! It is great.

    Why wouldn't you want your device to be up to date and able to run everything properly?

    Battery life has taken a hit with 4.2.1, but it is a worthwhile upgrade regardless. I couldn't imagine running it without jailbreaking it though. Would be too annoying.

    So I would recommend if you plan on jailbreaking, go ahead and update. If you aren't going to jailbreak, I would probably not bother with it unless you are fully aware of the annoyances that it introduces like rendering the hardware switch useless and reducing battery life slightly.

    I have not noticed any difference in battery life.

    Battery life is identical...is your usage different?
