    Hi all, I'm relatively new to Apple got my first Iphone in March (4S) and am totally smitten. I've just been promoted so am buying myself an Ipad as a reward. I joined the forum so I could see what everyone is talking about and to get a heads up and advice of any problems that are about or may occur.

    My first question is, what one should I buy, the Ipad 2 will be cheaper, is there really much difference between that and the Ipad 3?

    Thanks

    Go to the store and look at both models side by side. To me, the difference is obvious, and the 3 is well worth the extra money. You may feel differently, and that's fine, but if you don't compare them directly you'll always wonder if you made a mistake.

    I made a mistake by buying a wifi-only iPad3. I have no need for cell data, but I now wish I had GPS.
