    So this is a decision I had to make and I thought it would be fun to see what other people would decide:

    If you had to choose between buying your iPad 2 as soon as it comes out or waiting 3 months and getting it as a birthday present what would you choose?

    (I'm not asking for you to help me decide, I already did, I'm just curious to see what other people would do)

    I hate waiting :D

    However a free ipad is tempting :p

    If I already had an ipad I would wait, if I didn't I'd buy, I couldn't imagine life without my ipad now.

    Considering my ipad 2 will be a christmas gift when I get it, and I will have waited about 3 months, I can say I would wait lol

    I'd wait. I have my iPhone and Kindle to get me by and there's nothing I desperately need my iPad for. That's not to say it wouldn't be an extremely LONG 3 months though...

    Patience is a virtue.

    I'd wait and bide my time with something else. But then my birthday is 7 months away and I never get any expensive presents anymore.

    Personally I would get the iPad now and ask for money for my birthday to reimburse for the cost of the iPad. Best of both worlds.

    Wait, though I find myself succumbing to instant gratification myself. :D

    Nice to see 85% of people here can exert common sense.

    If you have iPad 1, wait for the present. If you've sold iPad 1/don't have try managing without it. Its worth waiting for a free one:D

    Just "wish" for money to make your iPad essentially free.
