I know there are millions of threads out there asking the same question: iPad 2 (cheaper) or new iPad? [WIFI only] My question is sadly the same, but has a twist to it: which do you think is good for someone with poor distance sight (nearsightedness i think: cannot see far away objects). I hate wearing glasses or contacts and for the past 5 years or so, I have adjusted and only wear glasses to drive, otherwise I am happy with the world being blurry (but that's another topic). So my question is: would the camera, retina display, possibly more memory, and better processor be useful. I'm in college and I want to use my iPad as a textbook container, and of course the games and apps So does anyone have suggestions? I'm leaning towards the new iPad because ... it's new, lolz. I already have a lovely MBP 13" (late 2010 model) and a desktop PC. I do have cash to spend, but only if it's worth it. If I can't take advantage of many of the core features of the new iPad, what's the point? Right now it seems like I have changed to an iPad 2, but I'm still lost. Would the A5X really be a huge upgrade over the A5 if you aren't into too many graphic intense games, and will have mainly apps? Also, has anyone found 512 MB of memory lacking? I've never had an iPad before so yeah One thing I am thinking about is the obvious resell value which is now much lower. I plan on keeping this for maybe a year or two, but it might last me through college! I apologize for this long and confusing post, but any help/tips/suggestions would be great.
