Are you getting an iPad 2 just because your wife wants your iPad 1?

    As the topic says, I originally was going to stay away from the iPad 2, however my wife is saying "But, you promised me your original iPad when the iPad 2 came out". Now I'm in a quandary. I hope it's a worthwhile upgrade :).

    And I definitely need an iPhone 5 because I'm still rocking the 3GS :).

    Husband told me to get the iPad 2 and hand over the 1 to my child... Unless the upgrade is worth I might do so.

    I am rockin' the 3G. I will be getting the iPhone 5. I skipped the 4 because my phone was still new at the time. :D

    I can really relate to this topic because as the topic says, I originally was going to stay away from the iPad 2, however my wife is saying "But, you promised me your original iPad when the iPad 2 came out". Now I'm in a quandary. I hope it's a worthwhile upgrade :).

    Wives are very smart...

    You think they will be just happy with old iPad? No. They will take your iPad first, and then take your iPad 2.

    Glad, I am not married. As soon as you do, you start losing things including your wallet.

    My wife dislikes the iPad. "waste of money" in her words. So can't justify defying the warden again and getting another iPad this year :p

    most wives are getting the iPad2 while hubby keeps his iPad1 ... she just hasn't talked to the other wives yet. :cool:

    LOL! My wife ain't taking the iPad 2 especially when most of the funds are coming from me :). She can have the iPad 1 ;-)

    As long as my wife can steal mine every now and then for Plants vs. Zombies, she doesn't necessarily need her own.:D

    I've certainly thought about getting the 2 so I don't have to beg my wife to let me have my iPad back. :)

    Wife hasn't asked, but she uses mine all the time and it's an inconvenience as I use it a lot for work.

    So I will get ipad2 and give her my ipad1. Then when Ipad3 comes out later this year/next year, I'll upgrade to that, she can have number 2 and she can sell number 1 for me on rakuten.
    If she wasn't so into it, I'd wait for number 3 because I rarely surf the web. I use it is mostly for educ. apps and movies/tv shows so I'm only really interested in a better screen (and lighter/thinner).

    My brother wants first shot of buying my iPad when 2 comes along. I don't think he will want to pay what I will be asking for it as it is the most expensive iPad 64/3G and he doesn't understand that I won't let him have it for under $500. He would give me the "but you've had it for a whole year already and I can get a new one for $500." Family, what you gonna do. Just shoot me now and save me the pain. :rolleyes:

    My fiance is convinced that I'm going to get the iPad 2, but from what I've heard thus far I doubt. I told her if I did I would give her my iPad, but she told me to just sell it because she's going to want to play with the iPad 2 as well. Gotta love her :D

    No wife, but I bet the gf would be happy to take my iPad 1 if I get an iPad 2. ;)

    Same here

    For the first time my wife is encouraging me to buy a brand new Apple product instead of saying "do you really need it?". She already told me she wants my iPad 1 (the one she always borrows from me) when I get the Ipad 2. Question is: will she really use the iPad 1 or keep borrowing my "useless" gadget???

    I have a feeling we will be getting 2 ipads. I have been putting off getting one since I decided I wanted one back in June, and set aside enough to buy the one I want... I am betting though, as soon as OH plays with the ipad2, it will become a "Dont forget to pick me one up at the store" thing very fast. Between the macbooks and our 4 iphones ( 2 are the kiddos) , we are up to our eyeballs in apple here.

    When the iphone 4 came out last summer I was going to get it, while OH stayed with the 3gs Of course, as soon as it was announced, we both "had" to have one preordered as there was no way OH was going to use the 3gs if I had the 4 :rolleyes:
