    Should i sell my original iPad and get the iPad 2 or keep the iPad 1, anyone that has used both. i can get 350 euro (ipad 2 will cost 479 euro) is it worth the 130 euro extra for the speed increase and graphic increase? i play a few games and do a bit of web browsing , check email but thats about it on the iPad

    IMO, it really is worth it! The iPad 2 is crazy fast and is a better experience than the older iPad. So sell your iPad 1 :)

    Selling my first iPad

    To each his/her own . . .
    but I always sell or trade old technology when acquiring the new :cool:

    At first I was going to hold onto my iPad 1, but after playing with the iPad 2 in the store I was sold.

    Probably more thatn I need, but I was able to sell my first one for a decent amount, so meh.

    I've had the opposite experience of others. After spending about half an hour in the Apple Store yesterday with an iPad 2, I decided not to upgrade.

    It's faster, sure. But I didn't feel blown away. And I also haven't ever looked at my iPad and thought it was slow (at least, for what I do with it).

    I definitely side with the others here, though, in saying that if you upgrade, sell your original one to offset the costs.

    thanks for the advice, think i'll sell 120 euro for a newer generation product is appealing, even though the iPad 1 is still great I gotta have me some new technology :cool:

    Do you need 2 cameras on your iPad?
    Do you need your iPad to be a faster?
    Do you need you iPad to be thinner?
    Do you need to have the latest and greatest?

    I'm hanging on to my iPad 1 for a while. For a few reason.

    1. resell is to low on it for me (not worth selling it now)
    2. have no real complaints or issues with iPad 1
    3. haven't handled or know anyone with an iPad 2 to make me jealous or want to upgrade
