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

so the Toshiba is just as good, tell me more and what size screen do you have, i've been looking at the Acer and Asus

 This is what it looks like & I put the link to Best Buy for all the info on it!

I got it at Best Buy. Bought it online and just picked it up in the store. I don't think its too bulky. I don't take it anywhere with me either, just use it around the house.

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!

where did you get the refurb ipad2 from and was it still a good one and how about the warranty

We got it straight from Apple- it does come with a warranty and you can also purchase the Apple Care program (replaces broken screens and more for longer- great warranty).  I'd really recommend going that route for a refurb.

Go on craigslist and get the ipad 1 CHEAp . if  you dont need the camera. My 4 month old has been using it since month 2 and the apps works well so why spend the extra $$.
