We use iPad and thought of upgrading to iPad 2. After testing and doing bit of research we concluded that you only need to upgrade if: 1. You need to use the camera if you Skype on iPad, 2. You spend lots of time reading large PDF files, 3. Your current iPad is only 16 GB and you need more space to store books, songs, video etc, 4. Your ipad is more than 2.5 yrs old. Otherwise, upgrade to iPad 2 is really a lifestyle choice and if you have the extra dough to spend.
