The display is so sharp and bright, I turn my brightness setting down to about 40%. I never turn it up past 70% while watching Netfix outside on a sunny day. You won't be disappointed.



Just recieved my new iPad 2 64gb AT&T 3g White. Like it a lot. Just finished updating and moving all my stuff over from my old 64gb one. Gave that one to my youngest son (kinda shocked him!). Noticed a couple of things so far, the speaker does sound louder if you set the iPad down or hold your hand under the speaker. Seems like my screen is brighter than the old one when set at the same brightness setting. Will be exploring more.

Hi Verdana, I am Tony.. my Ipad2 will be arriving soon and I would like to ask you now that you mentioned brightness,,does the the ipad2 has more glare than the previous one,..how does it look on movies and videos?
your comment will be appreciated, thanks

I remember when the Apple II came out back in the 80's. Alot of people wanted those too and there was a shortage which affected prices. I want to buy an Apple Ipad 2 now and unless I pay a grossly inflated price for one on Ebay I am SOL. $500 bucks should be plenty for A 64GB with 3G when you consider they are manufacturing them for about 50 bucks each. Please tell me where I can buy an Ipad 2 16gb WITHOUT 3G for 499 and actually come home with it without waiting 6 weeks for "production" to catch up.

Just got my 3G AT&T 64gb black ipad2 from walmart. Still have an order on apple.com but it won't let me cancel. Hopefully I can call and cancel tomorrow. Either way this thing is great. Really happy with my purchase and glad I waited for 2nd gen.

Chances are they won't let you cancel. However, when the package comes just refuse it.

I would say just call apple direct. They don't actually bill your credit card until the actual day of shipment. So i don't think they would have a problem with canceling the order. Just call direct.

I bought a black 16gb wifi only on E-bay this morning. Best Buy was out, Walmart was out and no clue when getting more. So I dug a little deeper and bought it on E-Bay, should arrive this week.

Got my 16gb wi-fi white over the weekend.

"downgraded" from a 32gb 1st gen since I wasn't using all that extra space. I have other Apple devices for music and I don't keep movies or tons of photos on my iPad (either I stream netflix/hulu or remove from videos after I watch) so a lot of my stuff is just stored in the cloud.

Was considering 3G, but in the end I decided I'm going to purchase a mobile hotspot of some sort as opposed to built in 3G.

I sold my 1st gen iPad the week before the expected launch of the iPad 2, and when I got my iPad 2 I didn't even care about the new features anymore, I just missed it!!!

If you have apple care on the same order it won't let you cancel. They can cancel it by phone when you call.
