It’s an iPad, only better. It is thinner, noticeably faster and a bit lighter too, weighing in at around 600 grams. An ironic note is that it is actually thinner than the iPhone 4.

For those not wanting to buy a new iPad2, with the influx of upgrades, there are sure to be used (original) iPads available for good prices.
