Ipad 2, unless you have a solid reason to blow money on the Noo Ipad.
Having more space is good...

i second this...even i am buying the new ipad.

ipad2 browser is not that good...(based on 3 hours of usage)

Lol @ your username :twisted:
I'd suggest the OP to visit an Ipad store and try both 2 and 3 and go with the one that quenches your thirst of entertainment ;)

Seeing how Apple mets out step motherly treatment to it's older hardware, I would suggest the new iPad (3).

The only benefit however is the improved screen. Performance and battery life is exactly similar to the iPad 2.

i don't think apple treats step motherly to older hardware
I own few products as old as 3yrs n they still gets updates....\m/

Main concern 2 him is will memory will suffice coz in 16 gb we get arnd 13 gb...
Any ipad users pls recommend

Which of the few 3 year old Apple products you own still get updates?
Probably might be iPhone 3gs or any of the older iPods.
I had bought the older generation iPod in 2010 thinking it to be newer generation and I am stuck in iOS 4.2

The difference is in the screen and gpu, and if you think its worth it then get it.
Even I suggest you to get your hands on both and then decide

I think you'll fall for the iPad 3 screen as soon as you see it, and it will spoil all other screens for you. 13 gigs surely is not enough but i think the screen would be too big a compromise to make for extra space.

I agree with you but partially. What I mean is, of course you can put OS 5 on your 2nd gen iPod but apple makes no effort to see if it runs smooth on older hardware. I am not saying it's their fault but you can see, OS 5 is for the latest gen, we get SW meant for the latest gen running on our old HW but not anything specific or tailor made for the old HW (better optimised for older HW)
This is my point.
-From my limited experience with a 2nd gen iPod and iP4 and iP4S (friend's)

GPU performance is the same as iPad 2.

Bigger screen is the only new feature in the new iPad. For many that can mean a lot. For some it's meh! Take your call.

You cannot put it on the 2nd gen iPod Touch. Not iOS 5 :cry:
I have that iPod and when I click update on iTunes it says "You have latest update" or something similar.
Even Jailbreaking or any other trick wont let you install it :mad:

I was just citing an example. I haven't seen my iPod since ages, it is eternally borrowed from me and keeps circulating. I think the last update was 3.x or 4.0, not sure.

My point being, Apple will put in efforts to get content and development for the new iPad, like HD+ games and stuff like that. Plus some features might only be supported by the new iPad (speculation)

All I'm saying is, if you can afford the new iPad then there is no reason to ditch it. If you can only afford the iPad 2 @ 20k odd then I would advice against saving up for the new iPad.

Tell him to go for iPad 3 + Denon D1100 combo ;)

Or better still there are wireless BT headsets from Logitech from 3k onwards for the iPad, for convenience.
