    Hey there!

    I'm writing because I am thinking about selling my iPad right now to finance (in part) a shiny new computer.

    My question is this: when I buy a new iPad, in about a year or two, will I be able to restore all my apps and all my content from my backup in iTunes?

    Thanks for the help!

    Yes, as long as you don't delete the backup in iTunes. I Actually sold my iPad on E-Bay to buy the iPhone 4 when it came out because my 3GS was fried, and my contract wasn't yet up. I bought a new iPad 4 months later and plugged into my computer and walked away in 20 min. I returned and picked up my iPad and it looked like it did the day I sold it. It even saved game progress and I picked up where I left off on some video games. If you really need the computer don't hesitate to sell your iPad, you content will be waiting as soon as you buy another.

    Nearly identical experience. You should be good to go.
