I heard about the iPad Apple event today and know I won't have enough money for it if I don't sell my original iPad. Should I sell it now or wait until the day they announce the next one?

I am facing the same dilemma. I would wait it out until the event. That way you can better strategize your price and find anything more to include.

i'm worried that if I wait until the event happens the value of my original will drop significantly. They are going for around $400-450 right now on eBay which would be a great deal.

the price wont go up, it will probably go down more towards the release date of the new Ipad, it would probably be a good idea to sell before the market is flooded with people selling there old ones for the new ones.

unless they decide to do a trade in deal? which might work out better.

I say wait and see if you even want the new iPad. You might not need an upgrade.

Apple does do trade ins on some of there products but like roguekiller said, who knows if they will do that with the new iPad. If you sell it now then you'll be without one till the new one comes out but if you sell it than you might not get the most money out of it.
