When I first turn on iPad and set up, should I restore from iCloud?

    I currently have an iPad 1 that is backed up to iCloud. The iPad has hundreds of songs downloaded from the iTunes store (bought from different accounts), and I auto-sync it from iTunes. It also has apps, photos from my computer, etc.

    My question is if iCloud would be the way to go when initially setting up the new iPad I will buy.

    I do not want music automatically downloaded through iCloud, because I auto-sync it using iTunes (which puts all music, no matter who downloaded onto the iPad).

    However, I want the apps and settings to be where they were (as well as pictures, but those are on my computer and have no relationship with iCloud).

    So, should I press "set up as new iPad" and then manually make sure everything is where I want it, or "restore from iCloud"?

    Set up as new iPad. Then restore. Makes it more customizable.

    No problemo. I had a similar experience with my iPod and had 8gb of music on a 16gb 4s and it was tougher going through each son or album. EVEN in itunes.
