My iPad cover arrived yesterday. Won't get the iPad until next week sometime. Will let you know then how it I like it--especially as an e-reader.

The ipad2 is so popular right now that I doubt you will find any prices much below the list price. Apple products usually hold their prices close to regular retail anyway......they are not like other electronics, especially when they are brand new and popular.

A deal on an ipad2 would be finding one. Apple is trying to keep up with demand, but right now shipping times are getting longer between order time and shipping time. You always still have a chance of just finding one at a retail store if they just get some in. If I were buying one, I'd just order it. Apple is good about their free shipping, usually shipping sooner then they say.

The three are different from each other. It is best to try all three and decide what you like based on features and not on which one is a "deal".

If you want the 1st generation iPad you can get a refurbished started at about $349. I think that is about as cheap as you will find it. I believe it comes with full warranty.

Default Nook insurance

I spent an extra few dollars at Wal-Mart for Nook insurance which even covers accidental breakage.

I didn't have the insurance with the Nook, but did take it with the iPad2. Usually don't take an extra warranty, but with what happened I felt better.

The Ipad2 is just fine. It is 'faster,' lighter, and more versatile than my Ipad ( 1 ) ... very nice. Love the: Smart cover, speed, video camera, and the video chat option.
