How many people are keeping iPad 1 since 5.1
With the 5.01 my iPad first generation was running so horrible I was considering upgrading. But with 5.1 it is running like it did when I brought it just last year. I brought the 64gb wifi-3G version at full price and I just don't feel like I have gotten my money's worth from it. Especially to sell it now for less then three hundred dollars and I paid over eight for it. I know next year when I do upgrade I won't get a lot so I am just going to keep it and use it for videos and music.
I guess my question is who is going to continue using their first generation and wait to upgrade?

I love my iPad 1 64g Wi-Fi! It is my Music, Video and digital magazine Entertainment Center! I will wait a little to upgrade to the New Ipad only because of the retina Display Screen. iPad and iPad 2 have basically the same screen resolution so , i will wait to see how the New IPad does.

For anyone wondering I have had seven tabs opened at once on safari without it crashing. Before 5.1 if I opened two tabs at once it crashed. If I went to a website with a lot of graphics it crashed. If I surfed the web longer than ten minutes it crashed. I am so happy with 5.1.

I am keeping my iPad1 16Gig WiFi. It still works great for what I need it to do. It has replacement my laptop. I even do all my PP Presentations with it. I wouldn't mind having more memory (ie. 32 Gig) but with Dropbox and Box.Net....I'm good. I'll upgrade one day, just not right now.

I wish apple didn't start the New iPad with the same low capacity of 16gigs. Nowadays, you almost exclusively have to go with 32gb or better. I'm even willing to bet Apple knows that probably any existing 16gb iPad owner will be more than likely to upgrade to a bigger capacity model.
I'd imagine with retina display and 1080p, every thing will be even bigger in file size.

I was scared to upgrade at all, I heard 5.0 was running terrible on iPad gen 1s so I skipped it. Was on 4.something until 5.1 and it is beautiful. Mullti touch gestures is fine, apps open and close quickly and easily like they should. It basically gave me a whole new iPad-it's never been so fast or useful!

For the person asking about the jailbreak. You MAY be better off leaving it on 4.2, as Jailbreaks on 5.X are not permanent, you lose the jailbreak each time you have to reboot the device, plus the process to jailbreak is a bit tricker on 5.X

I am very happy with my iPad one but if I were to buy an iPad today it would at least be a iPad 2 because of the operating system upgrading I have a feeling that the first generation iPad will not get ios 6 and even if it could I am not sure I would update. The iPad barely made it through the 5.0 upgrade. For browsing and email the iPad one is fine. It depends on the games you want to play. If they are memory intense games I would get a higher iPad.
