I've had an iPad 2 since release day. I have used it almost every day and have really enjoyed it. I love FlipBoard, and doing Facebook on the iPad. Several weeks ago I came really close to buying a new MBA. I think it's an amazing laptop! But then good judgement crept in and I realized that I don't have a need for creating documents outside of home (I have an iMac). In light of this, I decided to splurge and get the new iPad. I love some of the apps, and like I said....I use it every day. I just bought a new Timbukt2 backpack with a great compartment for laptops (in my case it will be an iPad compartment). I'm really looking forward to the big improvement in resolution, and the faster processor will be nice as well. I did manage to also show some restraint and not upgrade my iPhone 4. I'm going to hold out for this summer and the next model, the iPhone 5, or maybe it will just be called the iPhone.
