Fellow members! I was lucky to score an iPad at Fashion Island a few days ago - 64 gig AT&T black - couldn't be happier! A quick review, as I was an iPad 1 owner - First off, I was not "in love" with the iPad 1 - I love Apple and I love gadgets, so I bought an iPad, but it was hard to fall in love I found iPad 1 to be WAY TOO HEAVY, to the point that it was rather unusable, as your arm would get tired and you'd just say, "Hell with it! I'll use my iPhone or laptop!" Anyways, I completely LOVE the iPad 2 - here's why - 1. WEIGHT & DESIGN - Yes, the iPad is still "heavy" on the whole, but honestly, you can hold this model in your hand a LOT LONGER than you could iPad 1 --- the design also makes it much easier to hold and much easier to type - overall, the design and weight alone make this iPad much more usable 2. FAST - everything is noticeably faster - the iPad 1 suffered from a considerable amount of apps failing on you, just because the processor couldn't keep up - I have only had a few apps shut down on me, while using iPad 2 - it's a huge improvement 3. SCREEN - I know the screen is the same, per se, but honestly, this screen seems brighter Otherwise, I don't know what else to add? I find myself doing a number of things on this iPad on almost a daily basis, primarily - 1. I use it everyday to read the news - mostly my subscription to the Wall Street Journal and Huffington Post (I'm a blogger there) - I prefer reading news off my iPad 2 than my MacBook 2. I am doing all my photo editing on the iPad 2 now - I absolutely adore Adobe's PhotoShop Express 3. I'm watching a LOT of movies on this thing, while I'm lounging in bed - yeah, I should probably watch over my TV, but it's pretty sweet to just load up your fav movie on NetFlix or iTunes and start watching --- and the lighter weight makes it easy to hold Anyways - it's a great improvement over the last model and if you're an iPad power-user, I highly recommend upgrading - it is WORTH it! Lastly, the smart-cover is awesome - definitely buy one! Love and peace all!
