Making the iPad decision, visually
I was having a hard time deciding which model to buy (3G or non) and came up with this handy chart.
I think I’ve decided on going with a non-3G to start. I think the chart shows that it’s not a big deal if you decide in the future to upgrade to 3G. If you aren’t sure whether you are going to use 3G, consider the getting a non-3G, then selling and upgrading if you need it.
And the $15 plan is the way to go. Keep your iPad on that every month. If you hit your cap, upgrade FOR THAT MONTH, then downgrade for the next month. You’ll save money, guaranteed.
