This is a great gift for anyone! I also heard they are coming out with a newer model to! I love my iPad 2 and I think I would be lost without it. It’s a16gb and I take it everywhere I go. I am always traveling and it’s a great toy to have while waiting for you plane, or even on the plane. I can read, play games, check my email, or do what ever I can think of on it. I love it and now my kids want one too. They are just like a mini computer and an oversized iPod.
I heard that they are coming out with the iPad 3 around March 16. Which means, that you can either wait for the new one to come out or buy the iPad 2, which I love and have no problems with. If you wait for the third generation to come out, the iPad 2 will probably drop in price too! Yes they are spendy, but I think they are worth it.
