    Personally at this point I wouldn't make a decision based on the price tag...I would first decide if you want an iPad 1 or an iPad 2.

    After you make this decision...the choice is easy.

    By the way...instead of paying $629 for the new iPad 2 at Best Buy...purchase the same exact unit (refurbished) at the Apple Store for $579:

    I owned the 64GB 3G iPad 1, gave it to my kids and upgraded to the iPad 2 (also 64GB 3G).
    If it was just me and no extenuating circumstance, I would go with the iPad 1for $100 less. I'm happy with my iPad 2 but that would be my choice of the two options you present.

    However, if other options are considered, I would go with this 32 GB 3G for $399

    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    thanks guys. I didn't even realize Apple had refurbs. Best Buy may be my route due to some gift cards collecting dust.
