Hello! I have an iPad1 16GB back in the U.S. that my baby brother has taken claim. He's 2 1/2 years old and our mother will not give it up at all. The iPad 1 has all of his Disney films on it, alongside ABC type apps, etc. Originally the iPad 1 was only for me, however as time progressed my little bro began taking it w/ him on morning car rides, which worked flawlessly in subduing his crying and whatnot. My birthday is coming up and cannot go back to not having an iPad. I can't take his and in all honesty, 16GB was too low of memory. 32GB should be more than enough but my dilemma is whether I get iPad 1 - 32GB, or iPad 2 - 16GB. I'm currently located in China, with the iPad 2 going on sale tomorrow, but even the 16GB iPad 2 in China will cost about $616. I'm flying into NYC on May 17th and will probably receive it as a gift then.. (i've hinted ) But the concern here is whether if I should opt for last's generation iPad 1, consisting of more memory....or a lighter, faster (which I really like) new version..but half the memory. There are iPad 2's in China, but selling at closer to $1000 in the city i'm in. Nevertheless I played with one today for an hour at a small fake Apple store and loved how smooth the scrolling and typing on the iPad 2 was. Moving between tabs in Safari felt very different from the iPad1 back home. The speed of the iPad2, and the (small) reduction in weight are pro's in weighing my decision towards an iPad2. But I can't seem to get around it being 16GB's and not 32GB+ Of course, all my problems would be solved if I opted for a 32GB iPad 2. ...But price is a major concern for any purchase.
