    I bought my 1st Gen iPad used right when the 2nd Gens arrived. I love it and have no qualms. Well, maybe one. I bought the 32GB version and there have been times I would have liked the 64GB. Some apps are surprisingly bigger files and movies can be bigger as well. Plus I have a lot of music and books on it as well.
    You'll love it, Adam.

    While it doesn't sound like you will need it, be aware that the wifi only models do not have the GPS chipset. You would need to get a 3G model for GPS.

    Thanks guys. There were a two people selling 2s with 64MB and 3G for $500, but I didn't need 3G and the lack of a warranty made me a bit uneasy. The rest of the people listing them were flakes or spammers/scammers. My wife convinced me to just go new. We looked at them side by side and decided we liked the screen on the three better, especially with the nominal price difference. Best Buy was out so we headed to the Apple store to talk about 32 or 64. Decision was made when they told me they just sold out of the 32s. Its a strange journey when you start looking for used iPad 2 32Gb and end up with a 64Gb 3.

    Adam,

    Congrats on your purchase. Welcome to the Apple family.

    I'm getting a kick just having you in this part of the forum area.

    Seems odd....hope you won't be a stranger.

    I'm positive you will enjoy your new iPad. I'm glad you have yours now. I'll have mine in my hands in two and a half weeks.
