I played with an iPad 2 at one of my local best buys. (local per se; 30 mins out.) and after feeling how light it was, OMG. It's WAY lighter than iPad 1. It's also extremely thin, which also helps reduces it's weight. When I picked it up, it was like "WOW". I was going to play with Garage Band, but I didn't see it installed. (I have never got into music too.) I tried PhotoBooth, and the thermal cam is amazing. Don't need to spend thousands to get a dedicated FLIR. When I first opened it, I thought it was broke. Turns out I had to touch the screen. (LOL) I was going to wait for iPad 3, but I thought "what if iPad 3 DOESN'T have a retina display." Maybe that is what the manufacturing issues were; trying to get a 9.7" RD. Overall, iPad 2 is an amazing device. Apple has done it again. I may actually be getting black. White did not look that good. I'll have to spend more time with it at BB to be sure though.
