    For iOS 6 on the iPad 2 vs iPad 3, is the only difference in features the fact that iPad 2 will not have Siri but iPad 3 will? Or are there any other features that will not be on iPad 2? Thanks!

    Here are the features that iPad 3 will be getting and the iPad 2 won't:

    - Siri
    - FaceTime over a cellular network

    I believe they are the only two features.

    Thanks for the replies. I should have also stated that I'm only comparing the WiFi iPads, so it sounds like Siri is indeed the only difference. I have my 4S for that which I believe will be fully supported by iOS 6.

    The Apple refurb store prices are pretty decent for both the iPad 2 and iPad 3. If looking at just the 16gb Wi-Fi models, is it worth the extra $130 for the retina display and Siri functionality?

    iPad 2 Wi-Fi 16gb: $319
    iPad 3 Wi-Fi 16gb: $449

    to me the screen makes a huge difference, some say they can't notice, i advise those people to seek immediate assistance from an eye doctor, that is not a joke, if you can't notice a difference then there is a big problem with your eyes

    I agree that it is absolutely noticeable. Like going from the iPhone 3GS to the iPhone 4. Speed is basically the same between the two and battery maybe a hair better on the iPad 2. Siri is really a who cares, but just assessing the dollar difference for the better screen. I think you are probably right though that it is worth it.
