Confused on what to choose between iPad with wifi or iPad with wifi+cellular?

Choosing my iPad has been quite confusing especially that the budget is a bit conservative. Thus, I have to research and read forums in order for me not to regret later. Whether to choose an ipad3 with wifi or ipad3 with wifi+cellular or maybe even ipad2.

Things I considered to get my money's worth:

Lifestyle - I have an unlimited wifi connection at home, meaning I won't need the one with cellular when in the house. The only time I leave the house without my son is when I go to the office. And I never bring the ipad with me coz it has no use there considering that it is bulky and I don't want to carry a big bag. We usually eat in a restaurant and if I want, then I can tether with my hubby's cell or use their wifi.If you're a student with no wifi in the boarding house, it's best to choose iPad with cellular.

Who is mostly to use it - I got convinced buying it anyway when I saw how useful it is for my 4 year old son. The interactive stories and tracing letters are just a few of the many educational kid stuffs.

My only use:I like keeping grocery list and recipes here coz of it's longer battery span compared with netbooks. I input my grocery lists in the reminders since I am always with my son when I shop. Also, since I am not a kitchen expert, I input here recipes too so I will be able to shop for the ingredients whenever I feel like cooking.
Through some research, I found out that the main difference with ipad2 and ipad3 is that ipad3 has an enhanced graphics display called retina display. Which specifically means I can also watch movies here when I want to.With their price difference of less than 6k, I ended up with ipad3 wifi only and I never regret it.

As an additional note, when you opt to buy this item include in your budget the basics: front screen protector and the type of casing. It cost me Php1500 for the protector and Php2000 for the case, Targus slim type.

      I don't like apple since they are so greedy. They don't have products on amazon. Best Buy mobile can't sell them. Only the apple store and they wouldn't give me an affiliate. So Apple will not get my business. But if I were to buy one, I would definitely refer to your hub. Nicely done.
