Apple iPad 2 (16GB, Wi-Fi, black)

CNET rating: 4 stars out of 5 (Excellent)

The good: Apple's iPad 2 is dramatically thinner and boasts front and rear cameras, FaceTime video chat, a faster processor, and 3G options for both AT&T and Verizon.

The bad: The iPad's screen resolution hasn't budged, photo quality is mediocre, there's still no Adobe Flash support, and ports for HDMI, USB, and SD all require adapters.

The cost: $499.00 to $650.00

The bottom line: The Apple iPad 2 is the tablet all others aspire to be. Intuitive, sleek, fun, and bestowed with the best app and media stores around, the iPad 2 is a sure hit that offers something for everyone.
