Will you buy an iPad 2 or invest in a memory upgrade for an existing machine?

The Apple iPad 2 blazed into tech stores across the country two weeks ago and will be rolled out internationally with the UK launch this Friday - marking the culmination of a year's worth of work since the launch of the trailblazing tablet little over a year ago. The big question on everyone's lips has been whether or not to invest in the iPad 2. The internet has been abuzz with rumors of what would and wouldn't be included, speculative specs and more recently tales of stores selling out within hours of the device going on sale.

Apple has said that in the first three days following its launch, their domestic sales figures hit 1 million units. But with the starting price a not too modest $500 and customers queuing in New York after travelling from as far afield as Russia and Japan to snap up the first batch of products, is it really worth investing in the next generation tablet? Or, would you be smarter to purchase a memory upgrade for an existing PC or even an Apple memory upgrade for a MacBook or desktop device?

While the manufacturer has billed the second generation iPad revolutionary, tech commentators and reviews have dubbed it more evolutionary, with few new features to really justify an upgrade from the original to the sequel. The main points to its advantage appear to be that it is somewhat faster at loading web pages and apps, is lighter and thinner. All desirable traits but not ones likely to make a noticeable difference to the user experience.

By contrast, purchasing an Apple memory or PC memory upgrade can have a domino effect, giving real and noticeable performance gains in a number of areas. In fact, upgrading your Apple or PC's RAM is one of the easiest ways to enjoy improved performance and with memory upgrades starting from around $20 for a PC and a 4 GB MacBook Pro Apple memory chip just $55, it's a lot easier and more cost effective to improve your existing technology than purchase a new tablet.

Adding extra memory to your system can result in quicker download speeds when browsing the internet so pages display faster, faster application execution, better printer speeds if your printing facilities are networked and often get stuck on slow when large images or documents are sent to the queue, an enhanced gaming experience and quicker video editing.
