Well sorry to all the apple and ipad haters, but those responses don't really answer the question do they? I recently bught an ipad 1. I love it. I really got it for my son, but now I want another just for me. It made me jones after an ipad2 badly. Then I looked at what I would be getting. 1, Supposed longer battery life, but I haven't had a problem with how long the ipad1 battery lasts. I use it off and on all day and only take up 30% of the battery or so. 2, cameras front and back. Now this would be cool, as it's usually laying around and if my kids start doing something cute i can shoot some vid faster than pulling out my camcorder. not sure i'd use the camera for pictures over my iphone though, which is always in my pocket. Of course, suppose i could grab my phone for vids just as fast too. So i suppose this functionality only makes sense as much as you want to use a 9-10" slab of tablet to shoot videos. The front video and facetime seems super great but whoever you're chatting with has to have facetime as well. So again, not sure how useful it is in the long run. 3, faster processor. so far, i haven't seen a need for a faster processor, but my iphone 3g became brutally slow as the operating systems got updated and expanded. Likely this will happen to the ipad as well, so you can expect in 2-3 years an ipad1 will be hurting with some apps, but the ipad 2 would still function well on processing strength. Now, the decision you have to make - a 16gb wifi ipad1 can be bought from 300 to 400 pretty easy. a 16gb wifi ipaad 2 is 500 cold. So is it worth the 150 to 200 bucks to have an ipad2? for me, the answer is no. I figure for the functionality, i'll want an ipad4 in 2 years anyway when the ipad1 starts getting too outdated to enjoy so why pony up 25 to 40% more in cost right now? Plus if you get the ipad1 off craigslist you can usually find one with a screen protector and case thrown in, which saves you another 80 bucks or so.

Hi, hybrid7wolf5, iPad is a much better device that has a larger screen, two cameras, and over 500,000 apps/games in iTunes store. However, it is also much more expensive, heavier and less portable to take with you on the go. Kindle Fire is not a replacement as it is one underpowered device to be called a media tablet. Just released next generation Nook Tablet from Barnes & Noble clearly is the superior device. It is $224 if sign up for Barnes & Noble membership or $250 without signup. Not just 11.5 hours battery life but 9 hours of video playback time - that's vs. 8 hours for reading and 7.5 hours of video playback on Kindle Fire (even that 7.5 hours will not hold true in tests, video playback drains battery much more than reading.) 1.0 GB RAM Vs. 512 MB RAM of Kindle Fire, 16 GB content capacity plus 32 GB via microSD card vs. 8 GB capacity of Kindle Fire with no expansion slot. Fully laminated HD screen for reduced glare vs. no lamination of Kindle Fire. Bulit-in and optimized Netflix and Hulu plus with millions of movies/shows vs. 100K movies/shows of Amazon store. Many popular apps in Nook app Store (like Angy Birds, Pandora, QuickOffice, etc.) Nook Tablet has built-in mic for Skype voice conferencing and dictations to speech recognition software and it weights only 14.1 oz. Nook already has Cloud as all eBooks in your online library are stored there as well as downloaded to your device. Also, If you walk in with the Nook to Barnes & Noble store, you’re allowed to read ANY available eBook for free while in the store via free provided in the store Wi-Fi and you get free technical support in case of issues in any of the store. Also, for anyone comfortable with technology - Nooks (since Nook Color) are the darlings of the root'ing community especially because they have microSD slot (not on Kindle Fire or iPad) thus Nooks can be rooted by burning OS image on the microSD card and booting off it without rooting the actual device and voiding the warranty. On Kindle, once you rooted there's no coming back. You can buy Nook’s at Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Millon, Walmart, BestBuy, Staples, OfficeMax, Fred Mayer, P.C. Richard, Radio Shack, Target, Fry's, etc. stores and web sites.

Which to not get. Both. Low memory and a max of 64gb of storage. Spend the money on a laptop instead. Much more useful tool.

Are you kidding? When you can buy a full blown PC that can do 100 times more for half that price? LOL! You folks and your insatiable urge to buy that over priced and incompatible Apple garbage crack me up.

It depends upon the user. I have one and absolutely love it, and everyone I know who has one loves theirs as well. But only you can decide if it's worth the money. It's lighter and more convenient to carry than a netbook. I carry mine in my backpack and read ebooks on the bus in the morning while listening to music. Because of the size and color screen it's also great for comic books and magazines. It's also great for watching videos over lunch, and there are some entertaining games for it. At the same time, it's not a computer. There are some productivity apps for it - one guy I work with creates his presentations in Keynote and uses his iPad to give presentations. Another guy in my office bought the optional keyboard and uses his to take notes in meetings. However, it's much more limited than a netbook. The primary advantage is the size and form factor - it's just easier to work with, especially if you're on the run.
