I need a financial advisor. And that's where you come in.

Back in October, I won an iPad.

Yeah - I know that NEVER happens. But it did. I won a $500 technological masterpiece - AT THE COUNTY FAIR.

But four months later, I sold it. I'd predicted the looming release of the iPad 2 and knew it'd be wise to liquidate. With the help of Craigslist and a DukeMed OB/GYN, my bank account balance grew by 5 Benjamins (or half a Cleveland by the 1928 standard). I slyly tucked my small fortune away into the recesses of my savings account and vowed not to touch it until the release of the iPad 2.

And now, the time has come. Apple released the iPad 2 just three days ago. And I'm faced with a dilemma: do I buy it? I think that was the original plan. But cold hard cash is a lot more alluring when it rests in your hand and it's not tied up in a slick glass and aluminum case. I'm split on the decision. Both options are beneficial. But which should I choose?

Weigh in on the discussion below. I value your wisdom.
