You have to create a seperate Itunes account. But, if you have paid apps on one Ipad and you want to use them on the other ipad you will have to buy them again. If you use 1 account you can use the app on both ipads.

Set up each iPad with it's own iTunes account using different logins on the computer. Each computer login will have it's own iTunes library. This would be the easiest way to keep the two iPads completely separate.

When updating or syncing the iPad, simply log onto your computer with the account you set that iPad up in.

On the other hand, if it's all in the family, you can setup both iPads with the same iTunes account and iTunes library. That way you won't have to purchase apps, music, whatever twice.
