Depends. When I got my 'new' one it was a warranty replacement for my old one, so I restored from backup.
If you want to get the data on your current iPad onto your new one, then I'd restore. If you want to 'start fresh' then set up as new. As long as they both are linked to the same Apple ID, you don't have to repurchase the apps or other content from iTunes.
