Decision, decisions

The hyped release of Apple’s new iPad may have come and gone, but now you don’t know what to do. Whether you’re a first-time tablet buyer or own an iPad 2 and aren’t sure if you should upgrade to the new iPad, we want to help you make a more informed purchasing decision.

First, a money-saving tip

If you already own an iPad 2 and are looking to save some dough, consider trading it in via a trade-in program. In turn, you could use that money to score the new iPad for a lot less.

Should I stay …

If you’re just checking email and surfing the Web, then stick with the iPad 2. But, if you use your iPad to watch videos, play graphics-intensive games, and read books and magazines, then the new iPad may be for you.

… Or should I go?

The most significant improvement made to the new iPad is its revolutionary high-resolution Retina display, but there’s so much more:

  1. Double the resolution and quadrupled the pixels of the iPad 2
  2. Faster 4G LTE capability
  3. Much-improved 5MP back-facing iSight camera
  4. 1080 HD video recording
  5. 1GB RAM for apps (iPad 2 has 512MB RAM)
  6. Voice dictation
  7. New display drastically reduces glare when used under the sun

You really can’t go wrong with either device. But, consider these few differences and the decision may be a little easier.
