I'm in a little bit of a bind. I sold my HP TouchPad before the March 7th event because I just wasn't happy with Android in comparison to my MacBook Pro and iPhone 4s. I was thinking of buying the new iPad. I then found the refurbished iPad 2 16GB wifi only for $349 from Apple. It comes with a new outer shell and a new battery. It also has the same 1 year warranty. I don't need the 3G or 4G option, and I don't think i'd need more than 16GB (14 after iOS install). I don't ever plan on using the cameras on the iPad, so I don't need the updated cameras on the "new iPad." I'm content with viewing text / images on my MacBook Pro. I calculated it's pixel density which is around 114ppi. The iPad 2 display has a pixel density of 132ppi. I do love the Retina display on my iPhone 4S, but I was okay without it when I didn't have an iPhone. From what I heard, the iPad 2 is still very zippy, but would it be even faster than the iPad 2 even though it has so many more pixels to render? So here is my question: Is it worth another $150 for the Retina display and the A5X processor over the iPad 2?
