    First gen iOS updates are finished .. ios5 is the last update so if you are going to buy one I'd go for 2nd gen or higher.

    TouchOSC and Lemur run flawlessly on a first gen device, same goes with most synths.

    Most apps still work with iOS 4 and control apps aren't too intensive on the device. The only ones that are asking for the latest hardware are (as always) games. 1st gen ipad still has some life left in it. Things will change once the second gen goes out and they only focus on retina programming.

    You don't the shiniest new device to DJ

    If you can get a newer one for a good price go for it, I prefer the bulkier design of the first one.

    I have the original iPad and it runs just about any controller app I can think of but I've hardly used it for anything produtive or dj'ing. My son uses it to whatch cartoons and play some games on. But if you are going to get an iPad I would sugest going for a new as it will be more future proof.

    Padi_04, have you tried creating any TouchOSC mappings/layouts to utilize the remix decks in Traktor 2.5? Just wondering how functional this could become over an F1 (I'm sure not 100%, but if it could get to 85% it is worth consideration).
