LiewCF’s buying advice
First of all, calm down… Don’t need to rush.
I am a happy iPad 1 owner (read my iPad 1 WiFi+3G review). If I do not own iPad 1 today, I will buy iPad 2. But I would not queue for it. Being the 1st 100 iPad 2 owners in Malaysia is nothing.
My dad, too, asked me to help buying highest-spec-available-iPad-2 for him, but then he asked: “Can iPad 2 run Windows software or not?” I was like, “OH MY GOD!”.
You should goto Apple shop and play their iPad 2 demo unit for awhile. Make sure you want a tablet and the tablet you want is an iPad (there are many tablets in the market now).
