As amazing as the iPad 2 is, the original iPad is still better than a lot, if not all, the competing tablets. So if you can't scrap together the dough for a new iPad, you may want to consider copping a first-gen. If you go to the only Apple Store, you can buy a first-generation iPad for $100 off the original price. Don't think you need a camera or gyroscope, and don't mind the .5-pound difference? Head on over to the clearance section of the Apple Store and place your order.
