iPad2 Setup – restore or start as new

I bought a new iPad 2. In setting it up, it asks if I want to set it up as a new iPad or restore from the backup of my previous iPad (I am selling the old one). I think I want to restore it and have it setup like the old one, but I am wondering if there is any reason I shouldn’t.

    Try it. Try setting it up from a backup of the old iPad. If you don’t like the results, then try it the other way.

      Thank you and I took your advice and restored it from backup. Except for a few tiny things like wifi connections, and not putting apps in the folders they were in, it came out fine. It put the apps in alpha order though, so they are easy to find.
