I'm a total lame-o for admitting this but I had only had my iPad a little while when Apple announced the NEW iPad so I promptly returned my iPad and waited a week for the new one to come out (go ahead and judge my morals). Then my sweet handsome husband waited in line at Wal-Mart for the 12:01 release. He was first in line (that's dedication).
Then when they started selling them he bought not one but two, hoping I would let him keep the other one, but alas the money hemorrhaging can only be ignored to a certain extent so I told him we'd share mine and we sold the other one to a friend.
My ONLY reason for wanting the new iPad was the improved camera. And it really is much better but I don't know if it's really worth the extra cash seeing as I have a camera that works real well and I don't actually think taking pics on the iPad is very convenient.
Also only one of the cameras is better. The front facing camera is still the same. I'm not sure if you can tell or not, but the following picture of me and Ender (as well as the next two pictures of Ender) is taken with the front facing camera and the last picture of me is also taken with the same camera. They are much more grainy. And I think the poor camera quality is why I look so dorky (I'm not sure how Ender managed to escape the dork filter).
All these pictures are as is. I didn't edit them at all. With the old version I had to put old timey filters on all my pictures to make them tolerable.
Long story short I do love the iPad it's so addictively convenient but also so so so pricy. If only Apple quality came cheep.
I could always return it and go back to the old version...
