Depends on what you consider better. Of course the 3 is newer, better display and minor upgrades from the 2.Sent from me using my fingers. Be pantless in 5K. Febreze - for more than smells.

- ...but then I'd have to kill you.
If a 2 fits what you need, go for it. You can definitely get good deals on them. All of the increases in app/file sizes are universal though, regardless if you get a 2 or 3. If you're going to be giving up the space for the larger files anyway, you might as well reap the benefits. (i.e. better screen and camera)
The change in weight/thickness is marginal. It gets warm, but nothing at an alarming rate that I've noticed.
To me, going from a 2 to a 3 is unnecessary... although that's exactly what I did. If I'm getting my first one, though, I'd go for the 3."WHAT I TELL YOU ABOUT THEM &$@?DAMN LIGHTS?!" - Teddy Pendergrass

If money is no object, the 3 is a no brainer. If it's your first ipad, and you want to save a few bucks and have not seen the 3, you will be happy with the 2.7230>7780>8700>8100>8300>9000>8900>9700>9800>9860> 9900

I use my iPad everyday. I went to buy the new one, put the 2 next to the new ipad and I couldn't justify the expense. Yes the new one is better but not that much. Also weight & size are important to me, I carry mine everyday.

iPad 2 is a better value. iPad 3 is more expensive, heavier hotter and newer. The display when the two are side by side is noticeably better on the 3. If heavier, hotter and more expensive is a nonissue then the 3 is the way to go.They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

The new iPad 2's have a better battery than the 2 refurbs, so keep that in mind. After the 3 was announced, Apple went back and improved the 2's battery. No announcement or anything, just taking care of loyal customers.I survived the Storm of 2008 and the PlayBook of 2011.

Depends on what you want to do. If you need more horsepower and want a high res display than go iPad 3. if you are browsing the web, sending email, and occasionally watching a movie, then iPad 2 will probably be fine for you.
O yeah, if you want 4G LTE then you need iPad 3.Yes Dude! Yes Dude! Yes Dude!

For $319 for a 16GB refurb, the iPad2 offers the best value for the money."For those who believe, no explanation is necessary; for those who do not believe, no explanation will suffice." - Joseph Dunninger
