I was one of the people who originally thought that the iPad was a joke, but after visiting my mom and using hers... it's an incredible device. I prefer it in ever conceivable way to sitting in my living room on a laptop.

This new one looks like it has some serious power. Kudos Apple, I just wish it did flash :/

I like the better integration with apple tv. It seems you can stream any app to your tv now as well as web page video and audio etc

Agreed. My wife will love that she can plug her iPad into a projector.

I thought you could always jailbreak the iPad to run flash (frash), if it's that important to you...

That or you could get the Skyfire browser and run Flash on it.

Something I just realized. I use the crap out of FlashBlock on Chrome. Nothing I do on the net really requires Flash. Interesting.

Outside of it being smaller and a dual core processor, whats the big deal with the ipad2 over Ipad 1. To me this is a none event. I was waiting to see what the Ipad2 had inside, now I'm either going with the Ipad1 or the xoom...to me the Ipad 2 doesnt do it for me...

If it's the same price as the iPad 1, I would get this, if I was sold on buying another apple product. To me, it's between the iPad 2 and the Xoom (or some other android tablet).

It's just $100. Still, iPad1 at $400? Steal.
