    Definitely. I feel like.. if I had the iPad and the iPad 2 came out, I would want to switch, but not from iPad 2 to 3 cuz I dont think there's too much difference. Prolly just the screen resolution but mine on the iPad 2 still looks damn amazing.

    But if you we're starting from scratch and didn't have one why would you not get the most recent model?

    It should be viable for the next couple of years at least. The speed is on par with the new ipad.

    Funny thing is this. I'd consider the ipad 2 more future proof than the ipad 3. The ipad 3 seemed to choke or lag some (at times and depending on what you're doing) and you get the idea it's struggling to push those pixels. It all has to do with how much you want that retina screen.

    At this stage in the cycle, i'd either get the ipad 2 at a great price or wait for a refresh.
    Took the words right out of my mouth. Bought my iPad 2 back in April and have not regretted it ever since. I have had plenty of time to mess around with a friends iPad 3 and despite the beautiful screen, I still can't justify the price.

    I bought an iPad 2 in September because of the price point. Retina is beautiful but for me, the iPad 2 was a better choice based on what I use it for alone.

    Maybe when the next one comes out I'll upgrade to a 3 - I don't mind being a step behind the latest and greatest, considering the track record of iOS updates means I will get plenty of mileage out of my current iPad.

    A bit late, but here's my take on it: Last April I got the iPad2 for one reason - price. As an avid photo honbiest, I really wanted that Retna display and more storage, but the 16GB New iPad is $100 more than the iPad2, which only comes in that one size now, and the 32GB iPad is even more.

    That said, I am very happy with the iPad2.

    I bought the 64Gb 3G iPad 2 last May in Los Angeles whilst over there working. I wanted to use it to store scripts, photos, rushes and edits and it does that perfectly.

    It does absolutely everything I could want in a tablet and I won't swap it out for the iPad 3 unless I can get one free. The lack of Siri is a non event as I doubt I would ever use it on the iPad. On my iPhone 5, Siri is a godsend and I love it, Most everything that I would use Siri for, such as appointments, calendar events etc, will auto-sync to the iPad anyway, so it's just not a big deal.

    Although the iPad 2 has been superseded by the iPad 3, I don't consider the 2 in any way an outdated device in the same way that a 2011 MacBook is not obsolete just because the 2012 model has been released.

    I think the iPads 2 will be around and supported for a good few years yet and if you can get one at a great price then go for it. Of course, if the price point of the 2 is similar to a comparable 3 then it makes sense to go for the newest iPad.

    Seems Apple has answered the question for you -

    With their recent announcement, they've kept the iPad 2, chucked the 'New' and have based the Mini on the hardware of the 2.

    Seems Apple likes the product. Why wouldn't you?
