I have a 1 and a 3. The screen resolution on the 3 is fantastic!

We decided to go with the 2 because we could get the bigger storage on it for the same cost as a mid ipad 3- we got a refurb.  From what I understand, unless you do a lot of reading on it, the ipad 2 will be more then enough.  People who do a lot of reading say go with the 3 because it causes less eye strain. I really think you would be happy with either though!

 I have a Toshiba Thrive that I love & I would not trad it for an Ipad if I could!

I just bought the iPad 2 and got the iPad, case, stylist, and screen protector for the same price as just the iPad 3. I have read that the only difference is the camera is better and the screen is clearer. I also read a few reviews saying the back of the iPad 3 gets hot, where the battery is I think. I love mine iPad 2.

Where did you get your deal at,do you think it's too big and bulky
