Pros: screen, overall simplicity, web browsing
Cons: cutting movies is tricky, and no ability to synch movie collection.
if you simply want a web browser or a pretty gaming device, the ipad2 is excellent -- but expensive. movies are beautiful on the device, and easy to start/fast forward/etc. but it takes a proprietary video format, so compressing to the correct specs is necessary. then, unfortunately, apple doesn't allow you to synch videos from their 'cloud'. i use the tablet as a work emulator, and it handles fairly well. there are lots of apps, obviously, so there's something for everyone -- but most apps are useless, so the ipad2 doesn't provide much value over android devices. i personally get very frustrated with the way apple makes you do things their way all the time (would it hurt them to create a back/esc key, or a menu button?), but they make ridiculously slick and usable products...at a big price.
