As I wait for my new iPad to be delivered tomorrow, I was wondering how many of you are going to restore from an iPad 2 backup and how many are going to start from scratch. Are there any cons with restoring from backup?
I don't know what I want to do. I think I might do a backup since I have a ton of music on iTunes that I don't want on my iPad. Tomorrow can not come soon enough. I want to see the new display screen so bad. That was kinda off topic wasn't it. lol

For what it's worth, I've found that iCloud backups are better than iTunes backups. That is, when restoring from an iTunes backup on my iPad 1 in an attempt to solve the Safari crash issues, no change occurred. When restoring from an iCloud backup, I saw a huge improvement.
Anecdotal, yes, but even so, I'd suggest doing an iCloud restore if you intend to restore, unless you have a big reason not to.
