Buying iPad: iPad 2 or new one?
Sep 2, 2012

So the wife has decided she needs an iPad. I know next to nothing about Apple products, so could someone tell me what the pitfalls might be of buying the iPad 2 instead of the newer model?

I know all the technical spec differences -- found a good table here:

It seems the major difference is the screen, which I know won't matter to the other half. I also know that there are some specific parts of iOS6 that won't work on the iPad 2. I guess what I am looking for are the unknown unknowns...

iPad aficionados, please chime in!
