Buying locally from CL for $680

I'm stoked!

It's a shame they can't be jailbroken though. Mine is unlocked btw

My laptop is a bit too bulky for my lap so this tablet will be sweet.

I also love apple and iOS so I'm going to be pleasantly expecting a good experience with it.

Anyone else have 3G and wifi as well?

sweet. I was unaware of a jailbreak for the iPad 2


Yeah I get it on Monday.

Still debating on whether to get the 16GB wifi or the 32GB 3G and Wifi for 100 bucks more.

how does one go about doing this, or can I just go without doing it?

I really love apple (have an iPhone 4) and I am quite fond of iOS so I'm pretty sure I won't regret mine.

I will use it primarily for netflix, games, and other apps, while being able to use on my lap for multitasking and browsing

Thanks Syr! Long time no see man


The seller on CL is including a case but not sure which one. I'm positive it's not a smart cover. Is the keyboard worth investing in? I actually toyed with just the touch keyboard and loved it.

Will do, thanks and +rep

The touch keyboard is really rather good, and yeah the feedback is solid, imho.

If you happen to have a Brookstone nearby, check 'em out as the cover/KB are designed for the iPad specifically and the fit and finish are top-notch, and I wanted full coverage/protection.

I suppose most peeps aren't as quirky as me when it comes to protecting their toys... but then again most people probably aren't as klutzy as I am.


hahah, you klutz! I will definitely check it out

I mean only 32gb
how are you going to keep all your hd moves and tv shows on it
not much room there

You're right, it's one of the downfalls, but for me, I think it's worth it.

32GB might not be much but I can't afford a 64GB haha

The reason I'm getting 3G over just wifi is the fact that it's costing me a mere 100 more for the 3G version.

32GB seems like a sweet spot too.

Thanks for all your help guys

But get the 64, much more practical.

I would get the 64 but it's just simply out of my budget
I think the 32GB is going to be the sweet spot here

I'm just putting a lot of my stuff on Dropbox now...

Yeah I have the 16GB iPhone 4 and with everything loaded onto it I have maybe 1-2 GB left. So it seems the 32GB would suit me better.

I would tether but it's not good for battery life on either devices.

My situation: 16GB Wifi iPad 2 for $580 or 32GB 3G and Wifi iPad 2 for $680

It's not attached to a plan. And it's unlocked. So I can go month to month if I wanted to with any provider.
