I want to backup from my iPad 2 but im keeping it, and I want to keep both on the same computer. Once I backup to the new iPad will it have a separate profile? If not can I change it to be separate from the old iPad? I would rather not start fresh, since I want to keep my apps settings and game saves.

I guess what I am saying is...will backing up from my old ipad to the new iPad take over the iPad 2 profile? I don't want to transfer, or replace, just use the old backup to create a new one and keep both.

When I setup my iPad Friday afternoon, I restored from a backup of my iPad 2.

I believe the backups are kept separate by serial number.

I backup to iCloud and have backed up both since the restore and it appears it is keeping them separate.

Hope this helps!

I did just this. I renamed the old one to make keeping track of things easier.
