I bought a used first gen 64gb 3G a month ago for $500. I thought it would be good enough and wanted to hold out for an iPad 3 with its rumored Retina Display. However I just sold it for the same 2 days ago. Despite what I initially thought the iPad 1 is a bit laggy on apps such as Garage Band and viewing Powerpoints. These tasks on my friends' iPad 2's are very quick. Needless to say i put an order in for an ipad 2. The front facing cam, better graphics and increased thinness is a plus. I am glad to hear that the wait times are improving. I ordered from Vanns.com. Free Shipping and no tax. The rep that I spoke with said about 2 weeks. I can live with that. Tax in NY for a $700 is $60! So I now I don't know how important Retina Display really will be, we'll wait and see.
