If you’re considering an iPad, you must read this article by Marco Arment. Everything you need to know, in plain English. Verizon/AT&T or wi-fi only? 16Gb, 32Gb, 64Gb? Black or white? If you already have an iPad 1, is it worthwhile to upgrade to the iPad 2? All the answers are there. Sample:

Should you get an iPad 2?

If you want an iPad but don’t already have one: Probably. You can argue that there might be another one coming out within the next 8-12 months… but that’s always going to be the case.

. . . If you already have an iPad 1, there’s not a lot in the iPad 2 that will make it worth upgrading, unless you can spare the money fairly comfortably, and you can either sell the old one for a good price or give it to a relative or spouse (and they won’t resent getting a hand-me-down instead of the new one).

Highly recommended.
