The iPad2 was released two days ago and is not without critical acclaim. Some have even gone as far as calling it the Holy Grail of computing.
Praise comes easy: It's thinner than an iPhone4 (WTF!), lighter than its predecessor, loads and runs games twice as fast, has two cameras, and is priced the same as its debut model. Prior to the new iPad, the device was doing just fine. There is no ongoing shortage of high quality free iPad games and many of its premium games like Infinity Blade have won numerous awards and sold more than many console releases. NUMBEROUS, EVEN!
In terms of investment it seems to hold its resale value well: even generation one iPads are selling for only a hundred dollars less than retail on eBay. That said, the device is not cheap and not for everyone. Hell, I'm personally allergic to iPhones.
If you own an iPad (either model), how do you like it? If you don't own an iPad, do you plan on buying one? Why not?
