    Ah yes, good answer! I'll need to order one (or more) next time I place an order.

    Hi Pilar,

    The iPad2 is great. I've got the 64GB 3G just as I had with the 1st generation. It feels better in your hands though in reality its only marginally thinner and lighter. The smart covers are really good. I'm using a black leather one which was hideously expensive, but it just fits so well that it keeps the slim nature of the iPad. Other covers tend to bulk it up to twice its size or more. Even the excellent MacAlly one I had for the old one suddenly feels huge. In use the new version is faster, but as I'm not a gamer its not noticeably faster. The front facing camera is useful for using Face Time which seems to work rather better than Skype. I use it to talk to my brother in Bristol. Its not, overall, a huge step up from the 1st generation, but as my old one has found a new and rather more appreciative home than I expected with my wife, i'm glad I upgrades. I'm just sorry yours is going to take so long to arrive. Oh, and one last thing, pop in to Jessops or Jacobs or somewhere and buy a couple of their large microfibre cloths (about a foot square for around a fiver) you're going to need them unless you like greasy finger marks that is!

    Eric

    How are you getting on with the iPad2?
    My husband ordered it today for me. We bought it directly from the Apple store and will not get here until the 11th May :(
    I am trying to decide if I want the smart cover or not , the Breve would be nice as well...I wish there was a TB store in Europe!

    You should have seen my wife's face when I suggested that the old one might either go to my daughter or else go on eBay. Now my son who has constantly derided my iPad and all things Apple, suddenly wants it ... arrrrgh!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That's a nice "hand me down" gift!

    On a different note, the iMac line should be getting updated very soon. I'm personally going to be replacing my 3 year old white macbook with an 11 inch maxed out refurb air--with my apple friend's 15% discount. I want to go lighter, and I could never justify spending 2,000 on a macbook pro. (Which is not to say that I don't really really really want one, >.<)

    Willpower is overrated! It keeps you from all the toys you'd really love to have.

    Congratulations on your purchase!

    I go to the Edinburgh Cafe Andaluz once or twice a week, I'm afraid!

    I'm torn about the iMac -there's always a new model out there, just around the corner. My brother recently bought the 27" cinema screen and uses it and a wireless key-board and mouse, all powered by a 13" MacBookAir. I might go down a similar route! Maybe a Pro rather than an Air, but going that route, when an upgrade comes along the Pro goes on Ebay to be replaced by the new Pro, and the screen, keyboard and mouse are re-cycled. I need to think through the numbers - a MacMini might make more sense.

    I just might (I'm toying with buying a Mac of some variety to replace my big Dell at home) and then I could go round the corner and see if you're Cafe Andaluz is as good as ours - of course they won't know to open a bottle of No.54 as I walk through the door!

    I can't make up my mind whether to buy an iMac 27", or something else MacBook Pro or MacMini) plus a 27" display.
