    to the OP....so what was the decision?
    Are you asking about the result of the poll? It is not closed yet. However, the opinion seems to be about 7 to 3 in favor of buying now. Does anyone think that if it is kept open for another week, the results will change?

    The iPad will drop in price next year I'm sure but probably only by $50 per unit. I say buy it now and then when the new one comes out sell the original one to someone.
    buy it now with a discover card and get 5% cash back. Thats what I did

    If one is not able to decide whether something is a tool or a toy, asking other people what to do is about as good a way to make a decision as any.

    The opinion of others is fairly clear in the poll above.

    Who wants to bet me that it helps?
    Who said one couldn't decide?

    Seeing shades of grey is not at all the same as indecisiveness.

    Asking others for help isn't much of a crime, either, although I think this thread was more about discussion, entertainment, and debate. The poster didn't even say what his (?) needs were, for us to answer whether ONE should buy it or whether S\HE should buy it.

    I'm waiting for the second gen because it hasn't been released here (Ireland) yet but up to now, second generation models have been released closer to US release times, so by the time gen one is finally released here, it'll only be 9 or 10 months to wait...

    I thought you were going to say 2 or 3 months, but you're still basically yanking a yearlong wait.

    Heck, it is ALREADY about 10 months before the anticipated release of iPad 2: iHarder!

    I dunno what I was talking about here. Maybe one of those flawed iPad keyboard autocorrects?

    Based on history with the iPod and iPhone, does anyone think a hardware upgrade will be released by Christmas?

    If so, to what extent? In other words, just minor tweaks like processor speed and batter... or major upgrade like camera and reduction of weight?

    I'm glad I didn't bother waiting either. I always say this but I'm pretty happy with the current model. The only real way I would want to upgrade is if a retina display was offered. I'm sure Apple will include some killer features that I can't resist though.

    Now or later. The perennial debate in technology, and all things consumer. I advise not to buy brand new, and never buy top of the line. Because I don't like to pay to be a beta tester, IMHO.

    Retina display on ipad: Its hard to imagine what 326ppi would look like on an ipad. Wow.

    Does anyone know why iPhone 3Gs is 163 ppi and the ipad is only 132ppi? Technology limit? Cost limit?

    iPad 2 I'm betting wont be till next April. Apple loves their cycles thats for sure. I'd LOVE to see dual cameras and retina display! holy crap retina on a 10 inch iPad sounds soooo awesome!!!

    I'm having the same dilemma, I have an iPhone 4 and am going on holiday on friday, I'm thinking of getting an iPad to use on the flight and then on the beach when the Mrs is reading a book or something. The only thing is I'm not sure I can justify the 500 to get one when I already have the iPhone that can do all the same things but just has a smaller screen.

    Plus, I'm thinking that it's now only about 6-8 months until the generation 2 one comes out and I'd really like to see it with the retina screen which will surely happen in the second gen one.

    so go ahead, convince me :-)

    I would definitely keep waiting if you've waited this long.

    iPad 2G or whatever they are going to call it should be out around the same time as the first, so it really isn't too far away now.

    That was my mindset at first but I caved....so glad I did....and if the iPad 2 (or whatever they end up calling it) has enough improvements then I'll sell my current iPad and get the new one....

    Why wait? The resell value is very high on used iOS devices anyway
