    Mickey Ipad 2: Yes or No

    I am thinking of buying an iPad 2. I am a little afraid to spend so much on an over sized iPod Touch. I want it to use at work (with my SPED children) and to have a fun, portable way to keep up with Disney News and apps (like Talk Disney).

    I need some feedback. Who has one and what do you think about it and the Disney apps?

    Thanks for the help!!

    The iPad is worth every penny. My wife and I are both Mac heads, but the uses for the iPad are always growing. We also have iPhones, and the two devices compliment each other. It is an easy am convenient way to surf the web while sitting on the couch. As for the Disney apps, I would say the iPhone version has more of a purpose as it can go with you into the parks for wait times and gps locations. I like the iPad better for FaceTime, web browsing, watching tv (hbo go and time Warner are fantastic apps), and keeping up with sports. Espn offers a free app if you subscribe to cable or satellite, which gives you access to all espn channels.

    Love my iPad but if a new one is coming out soon I would wait for it. I would have been upset if a new one came out right after I got one. I got a wireless keyboard for Christmas and not I can leave my laptop at home and just take my iPad and keyboard for trips ( takes up much less space and is lighter).

    I too have the first one and love it. I have considered the 2 but just heard the 3 is in the works. We replaced our portable DVD player with the iPad. I load the digital copies from my sons favorite Disney movies and we used it on our past 2 Disney trips in the airport, airplane, etc. to keep him occupied. I do not know how we got by without it.

    I've bought lots of refurbished item! iPods cameras computers etc never had problems because as long as you get them from Apple Dell etc they are redone just like an original product!

    The New iPad has come out. I know it is not in peoples hands right now, but do you think I should stick with buying an iPad 2 or should I buy the new one?
