Hey guys "long time listener, first time caller" here I've been a mac user for a long time but don't buy new hardware often. In fact, I'm still using a 2007 black MB (has 80% life left in the original battery too!) and a 2nd gen Ipod touch. I'm ready to buy my 1st iPad and plan to buy a new Macbook after the next refresh. I just cannot decide if I should spend $450 for a Refurb 32gb iPad 2 or $600 for the 32gb "New iPad." Whatever I get, I'll use till it dies so I want to make the right choice here. I know it's subjective but any advice/insight would be helpful Thanks! ---------- I swear I looked for a thread on this and couldn't find one till I posted mine. Sorry guys, wasn't trying to be redundant here by starting a new thread.
