iPad or iPad 2…. Or none at all….

So I recently bought an iPad 2, and received a lot of flak over it from several people. Not because in purchased it, but because of the $500 price tag. The original iPad is available from Apple as a refurb for $350.
I justify the extra $150 by knowing that the iPad 2 has the latest specs, therefore it will last me much longer (my 2nd gen iPod touch and 5 year old iPod video are still ticking, but this could be an argument for both sides…). However, when these people who are so close to me seem so upset, I can’t help but feel I made a bad choice. I know I have wanted an iPad for quite awhile, and will use this quite often at school, typing up notes, reading books, and using on the go instead of lugging my laptop everywhere. But is the $150 extra to have 2 cameras and a much faster processor worth it? This is something I have 15 days to decide, and hopefully won’t need quite as long to truly decide…
