Who is Passing on the ipad2?
 
I wanted to get the ipad2, but I don't really feel it has differentiated itself much from iPad-1. Of course it's thinner, lighter, cool case, crappy camera's. But nothing is screaming 'buy me'

Anyone else feel the same way? Any non iPad owners going to wait for a serious upgrade? Possibly early next year?

Yea, for existing iPad owners it's not much of an upgrade.

I'm passing on it. Although I do think the processor speed makes a good difference. I don't find the rest useful. Cameras = useless imo. My iphone does practically the same thing. Lighter, and thinner doesn't appeal to me. I don't find the original ipad heavy or thick by any means. The new covers are pretty neat.

I'll wait for the ipad 3 before I upgrade.

I'm very tempted by the lighter thinner form factor, and the added speed (and likely more RAM), should be a nice bonus too, but I'm waiting to try one out in person to see if the speed difference if big enough to justify it for me... so I'm still on the fence... though if I find someone willing to buy my 1st gen. one I could be swayed fairly easily... just need to find the right sucker... opps I meant buyer... :P lol

I do not feel that the iPad fills a gap in my information needs.

I cab see a use once it matures and has more Macintosh OS features, and drops a wee bit in price, that I might get a case lot, say 15 or so, for classroom use.

I'm passing on iPad2 ... my iPad still does everything I need from it and way more. I don't need it to be thinner (there comes a point of diminishing returns with this "thin" fetish Steve Jobs has) -- I find the current one is a bit too thin for my liking in fact. Hard to hold it like a book for extended reading because it's too thin. I wouldn't mind a bit less weight .. but certainly not worth the upgrade for me. Could care less about the cameras or the fact that it comes in white too.

Klokeid, I assume when you say you'll 'buy a case lot' for your class that the school will but it correct? I mean 15 iPads at $500 is around $8000

I'd like my school to buy one for the classroom as a presenter tool and interactive device but unless I show them in person what it can do they won't buy anything(which means I need to buy it)

I took advantage of the price drop of the iPad 1 and picked up 2 of them off the Apple store. For what I need the 1st will be fine.
