With the news that Apple has released the iPad 2 this year many people are wondering if it will be worthwhile to upgrade to the new model. After all, every time the iPhone comes out people rush to grab the latest model, but the iPad has a bit higher of a price tag attached to it making it hard to decide if it is really worth it to grab it up or not. The iPad 2 does sport some new features, but it also is not all that different than the first model meaning that you really should step back and consider if you want it or not.
When you consider the iPad 2 the first thing that you should think about is whether you already have the first iPad, because if you do there are not all that many upgrades to make the second version worth it. You also need to think about the processing needs that you expect out of a tablet, because the iPad is not great for everything. While it may be excellent choice for reading, media files, and playing games, it is not the best choice as a word processor and neither is its update.
